Hi there,

I flashed a KitKat port to test it. However, I decided to go back to Cyanogenmod since it didn't work very well.

However, any ROM that I try to flash appears this error:

format() expects 5 args, got 3
E: Error in /storage/sdcard0/cm-7.2.0-p500.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted

what can I do to fix this? thanks

To flash that KitKat, you had to place a newer CWM or TWRP recovery version.
To flash cm-7.2, you need to go back to the older recovery!

For KitKat ROMs a recovery equivalent to 6.0.4.5 or newer is required to flash. The newer recoveries are capable of flashing CM 10.2 to CM11. All older Android versions will require the use of an older recovery, pre 6.0.4.5, such as CWM 5.0.2.7 Touch by vivekkalady.

In other subject, I tried other kitkat roms and they gave me that same error. the only one that worked was Omega. is there any reason to that?

Sorry, I honestly can't say. I no longer use this device so I've been out of the loop for some time now.
