I moved from Clockworkmod Recovery to the latest version of TWRP(2.7.1.1) and while trying to flash CM11 Snapshot M7 I receive an error. The error is as followed: "This package is for "m7wlv,m7vzw" devices; this is a "m7".

Also while flashing TWRP I found this nifty guide and was wondering if this would work fine with any compatible recovery for the HTC One M7.
Code:
Download the above file(was a recovery .img file. Save it to the root of your /sdcard directly (internal memory only) and rename it to recovery_name.img

Launch terminal emulator or connect to your computer and open an adb shell, then type the following:

su

dd if=/sdcard/recovery_name.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p34

Then reboot to complete installation

You need to update TWRP since to the latest version (2.7.1.1). There was an update from HTC that changed fstab partitioning.

To update your recovery:

Quote:

Boot into Fastboot via Bootloader
On your computer, browse to the same folder where you downloaded the latest TWRP.
Type: fastboot flash recovery filename.zip
Boot into recovery.

Sorry, I don't know what led to me putting the wrong version in my post, but I am running 2.7.1.1.

I'd like to note that I'm running a M4 Snapshot just fine.

I think you're running the 'm7' version of TWRP instead of 'm7vzw'. Try a new recovery and double check that you've got the right one.

Ah, I did not know there was a difference. I'll take a look for the proper recovery when I have time and then follow up. Thanks.
