Status 7 = Bad updater script

There are two ways to correct the
status 7 error. I'm going to tell you the
easier one (atleast i think so :P)
So, you need a computer for that.
Now, lets begin.
Step 1. Copy the ROM zip file to your
computer and extract it using your
favorite unzipping software.
Step 2. Once unzipped, browse to the META-INF/com/google/android
directory. You will find two files called
“update-binary” and “updater-script”.
Step 3. Rename “updater-script” to
“updater-script.txt” and open with your
favorite text file editor.
Step 4. Get rid of the line starting with “assert” to next semi-colon. Usually
this is the first line or one of the first
lines at the top of the text file.
Step 5. Save file.
Step 6. Rename “updater-script.txt”
back to “updater-script”.
Step 7. Rezip all the files you’ve
Step 8. Copy the new, edited zip file to your phone.
Step 9. Try re-installing ROM, now it
should install fine without Status 7

Ps :- I'm assuming that you are rooted and have a KK recovery already.
