Unhappy [Q] Got stuck trying to update to kitkat

Hi,
I need help because after 20 hours of trying i gave up.
I've tried like 8 guides of how to update the rom and it always failed.
I tried 10+ rom versions and put them on sd card and it fails with "status 7" or just "aborted" with no reason.
i'm using cwm 6.0.3.0, and when i try to update it using odin it also fail.
also when i try to load the original stock rom for my country it fails with no reason just "aborted".
I also tried fastboot in download mode but it wont recognize my device even with correct drivers.
now the worst problem is that when i restore it to the previews backup it works but the device is unusable, stuck after one minute.
I'm really frustrated and i hop to get some help here.


Thanks

Download KitKat ROM, PA Gapps and most recent SuperSU v1.94 http://download.chainfire.eu/supersu
+++ the 1&Only guide +++
- Download Raw kernel r4 r3p2 test > http://ge.tt/m/4wso5Hx
- Flash Raw kernel in your old recovery
- Go to advanced > choose reboot recovery! (Not System)
- Now in Raw kernel recovery CWM 6.0.4.4, you can
--- Flash KitKat ROM
--- Flash PA Gapps (full modular recommended)
--- Flash SuperSU
- Wipe data / factory reset
- Reboot
> You're on KitKat.

Status 7 > you need a recovery which is full SELinux compatible.

From which recovery are you flashing right now?
Screenshot of about phone information, please?

Are you on stock recovery 3e right now.
Some more details of your exact setup, please.

Or bad download of raw kernel. Can you open the zip file?

Question Got stuck trying to update to kitkat (me too)

Dear Experts,

I believe my case is very similar to that starting this thread so I thought I'd just continue (hopefully not violating rules).
My Android was ICS stock version and my wish was to upgrade to KitKat.
(I did not make any backup.)

I followed these steps:

I rooted my system and installed PhilZ Touch 3 CWM Base version 6.0.2.7.

Then I proceeded to the upgrade following this guide:
"Update Galaxy Note N7000 to Android 4.4.2 KitKat Lightning ROM"
[sorry, am not allowed yet to insert ext links]

Step 10 resulted for me in:

Installing update...
set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed
E:Error in /sdcard/N7000-STABLEv1.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted


I retried step 10 using SlimKat - N7000 but with the same (Status 7) result.

This CWM seems ready further actions although it keeps looping even upon switch-offs (needed to remove battery to switch off effectively).
I hope all details have been given.

Please do advise me about further steps.
Thank you,

R.

Simple download the latest philz touch, flash it with recovery reboot your recovery and flash the rom u desired. Your recovery is outdated hence status seven error
