Default [Q] ROM .zip install

Ok so currently running a rooted VS980 on 12B with CWM 6.0.x.x non touch. I have attempted to flash both CM10.2 and a 4.4 kitkat absed rom (pa_g2-4.0-ALPHA-20131205-vs980). In both cases I get the same error,

asset failed: run_program("/system/bin/loki.sh") == 0
E: Error in /data/media/o/ (filename of rom in zip format)
(status 7)
installation aborted

My current steps are a backup of rooted 12B,
wipe/factory reset
wipe cache partition
wipe dalvik
format system.

I also attempted to install a GAPPS .zip to see if it was happening with all zip files, the GAPPS installed with no issues.
phone also will take a restore from CWM so at least im not bricked in the meantime

Now that that is all out of the way can anyone tell me what is happening here? Only my second rooted phone first being a droid 4 and by the time I rooted it there was a lot out in the form of auto runs and apps to take care of all the steps to root/flash roms. So my knowledge level is pretty novice on this.

UPDATE: so after my reading im coming across random issues with CWM on the LG G2. going to attempt to push ASOPA 4.4 with GAPPS after I switch to TWRP.

Make sure you are on the latest versions. Darker ones will not install kitkat. Roms

Default UPDATE 2:

Ok, so after following the guide below and face palming myself about a thousand times through the process, I've come to another snag..... I get all the way to the end in both options 1 and 2, then get the error below. Option 3 (GooManager) states that there is no recovery for my phone.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2449670

[+] loki_flash 2.1
[-] loki aboot version does not match device

looked around through the thread and cannot find a definitive answer on what im doing wrong or what I may have done wrong in rooting or with already running CWM.

I want to attempt to go back to stock. Completely unrooted and start from scratch but not sure the path to take on this. I've factory reset via CWM but the phone is still rooted and the apps i removed via titanium backup are missing as well.

Is there a way to pull a stock firmware and somehow push it to the phone so that everything i have done thus far is erased? ( excuse the terminology here) like erasing and reformatting a computer's hdd and re installing windows.

Hopefully this stock firmware guide works...

Goo doesn't work either lol. Use freegee to install recovery. Will take you about 2 minutes to complete and you will be rooted and have a custom recovery installed

Thats how I got CWM onto the phone after I rooted. After all my reading though, I want to go back to stock and start all over again. I still haven't got a chance to start the proccess yet, been pouring through the thread about reverting back to stock firmware to see what issues have come up. From mwhat I can tell the issues were all related to people not fully reading the directions provided by the OP. Will update once I have attempted. FreeGee worked like a charm for getting CWM on though

Status 7 error means the rom developer is still using the old update binary script.
If you flash the latest philz recovery before you install a zip untick the setting that says" don't allow old update binary" Your zips should then flash without issue.
A better solution is to use the new update binary script yourself or ask the rom developer to update it.

Thanks for clarifying that!!!!!

So as of now I have re flash stock 11A per the guide (showed unrooted once done), Rerooted via IORoot 22 and then adb flashed twrp 2.6.3.2, Now I am going to flash the 2.6.3.3 .zip via TWRP and then try to flash A ROM and Kernel.

Back up and running!!!!

IORoot22
TWRP 2.6.3.3
ASOPA 4.4 BETA (updating as daily releases come out)
Slim GAPPS (might switch to regular due to the speech to text function being missing from keyboard but need to do some reading to figure out if running the full GAPPS will fix that or if it is something with the ROM ) EDIT: as i typed this i got a text and as i replied I noticed the icon is there now on the keyboard.... FACEPALM....

Thanks for all the information that was provided guys. Probably could have cleared this all up without the thread and just reading, Thanks for not flaming me and turning me away with a statement to use the search function.

To anyone reading this to find a fix for an issue they are having here are the links in order of what I did to get back up and functioning.

1. Went back to stock
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448960 ( how to go back to stock )
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2141817 ( how to set up SDK )

2. ReRooted
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448887 ( IOROOT how to )

3. TWRP
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2449670 ( TWRP how to )

All these guides worked the first time through for me, make sure you take the time and read all the directions in them.
