Default [Q] Problem flashing certain things using TWRP

I was just on the MJ9 firmware had no problem flashing other roms using TWRP. I read that TWRP was having issues flashing ND7 and seen that using Philz was the best thing to use, so I downloaded Philz and saved it, uploaded it to my external SD card along with the other required files for ND7. Rebooted to the recovery formatted the internal storage,dalvik and cache. First thing I did was try to install Philz. I instantly got failed and this message "assert failed: getprop (ro.product.device") I thought it had something to do with the Kitkat update. But, then I read on the forum that one user was having trouble installing Philz also and the user installed the ND7 first then Philz and it installed. So, I decided to try that. The update installed just fine but Philz still gave me the same error. I decided to try to install the radio that gave me the same error. I already had Liquid smooth 4.4 downloaded on my SD card and that wouldn't flash either but the gapps installed. I have installed the newest version of TWRP still no luck. I can't even use Airdroid to transfer to either SD card or internal storage (Later found out its an app problem). What else can I do to get the ball rolling?

Seems like you still have the wrong TWRP for your device.

Here is a Philz Zip with the getprop asserts removed, so it should flash just fine in your current TWRP.

That installed and worked. The ND7 Radio also installed. How do I fix the getprop asserts?
Sounds great but...

The major drawback of that route is that you will not be able to receive phone calls or text messages.
Am I missing something or does this make your phone fairly useless? 0_o.

Okay, I got liquid smooth installed along with the gapps. Thank you for all your help. What can I do to get this get props corrected?

It is already fixed now that you have a proper i605 recovery installed.
