Default 4.2.2 ota and custom roms

Okay so I've had the issue with sms on non sense 5 based roms before . I took the its to give it a shot and see if the new radio/firmware base would help. I'm still s-off, unlocked, supercid and have twrp. If I try and install any custom Rom it'll start then crash and say failed to write metadata. Is that due to it being the 4.4.2 firmware? And should I go back to 4.2.2 and try the New radio to see if sms works? Just curious cause I'd like to keep the 4.4.2 base if possible just wondering if anyone has had roms work

That error is due to using an old recovery that is not compatible with kitkat based rom installer scripts.
Update your recovery...

So does SMS work now on a nonsense ROM?

No. If you currently have that issue (like I do) updating to 4.09 does not fix it. At least for the Sense 6 rom I tested after updating. I haven't tested any of the custom 4.4.2 Sense 5.5 roms yet.
