Default [Q] Unable to install new version of cyanogenmod on D2SPR

Hey guys,

I've had my virgin mobile GS3 rooted for about 6 months now. I want to update to 10.2 or 11.0 but whenever I try to install a new .zip through CWM it always fails. I used to get the "Status 7" error when installing, but this edit below seems to have fixed the error code, but now won't install or give me an error code at all.

I have no idea what's causing it to fail! Any suggestions would be great!

Switch to newest Philz Touch recovery. Enough said. It also makes a difference if you are using a build specifically for d2spr (10.2) or a d2lte unified build (CM11 after February 17, 2014). Also, if you haven't already checked it out, Android Forums has a subforum dedicated to Virgin Mobile SGS3 users, whereas on XDA we have to kind of "mooch" off of the Sprint thread.

If I update from CWM to Philz Touch recovery will I lose everything on my phone?

No, recovery switching has nothing to do with that.

Specific ROM build is needed in order to provide further help.
