Just to provide all the information I have on hand, I have the

T-Mobile SGH-M919
android version 4.3
baseband version M919UVUEMK2
Current Recovery: ClockworkMod 6.0.4.7

My issue is that regardless of what rom I attempt to download i get the error below. Specifically, I've tried to download virginROM 2.3, which seems to be compatible with my device. From what I understand status 7 is in place to keep you from flashing an incompatible rom and so I'm not too sure how to proceed from here. Any and all help would be appreciated.


flash flash flashin things
format() expects 5 args, got 4
E: Error in /data/media/0/virginROM_v2.4.1.zip
(status 7)
Installation aborted.
/tmp/recovery.log was copied to /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log.
Please open ROM manager to report the issue.

I just ran into this a few minutes ago using Philz Touch. The solution I found was under the install zip menu, you should see "Don't Allow Old update-binary. It should have a check-mark; simply untick that option and try again.

I'm using CWM and I don't see the option to check "donm't allow old update-binary." When I turn toggle signature verification off I get

E:footer is wrong
E: signature verification failed
Installation aborted.

and then get prompted to ask if i want to install an untrusted package. I attempted to download and apply the new 4.4.2 Google Edition by Davnh, haven't tried TWCP yet but i feel like it should still be doable via CWM.
