PROBLEM FOUND AND FIXED! Answer in Post #3
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...48&postcount=3

Hey guys

I've been trying to install MIUI for hours, using both CWM or TWRP, and I'm always receiving the same error message:
Quote:

Writing recovery
set-perm: some changes failed
E:Error in /sdcard/miui_i9500_4.6.20_27061504e7_4.2.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted

I've flashed CM without a problem, and an original stock ROM as well.
Why is MIUI giving me a hard time?

**I already followed this guide: http://en.miui.com/thread-13226-1-1.html**

Thank you!

Use Philz recovery (just flash zip attch in rec) it's something to do with the older binary code-that's why it's status 7 ?

Thumbs up
Well, after deciding to fix this problem once and for all, I added a "ui_print" after
every (well not every) line, to see exactly where is the installation failing.
The discovery? It fails at:
Quote:

set_perm(0, 0, 0555, "/data/local/tmp/relink");

The solution?
Change all "/data/local/tmp/relink" into "/tmp/relink" like so:
Quote:

package_extract_file("META-INF/com/miui/relink", "/tmp/relink");
set_perm(0, 0, 0555, "/tmp/relink");
run_program("/tmp/relink");
delete("/tmp/relink");

Problem solved - clean installation with no errors

1) Extract "updater-script" from the ROM file (using winrar for example)
It's located in META_INF > COM > GOOGLE > ANDROID
2) Change the parts I wrote in the previous post
3) paste the "updater-script" file inside the rom

Good luck

i9500 MIUI Flashing Error
After downloading the MIUI ROM, open with winrar and locate the updater-script
\META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script
and remove the first line of code
getprop("ro.product.device") == "ja3g" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "ja3g" || abort("This package is for "ja3g" devices; this is a "" + getprop("ro.product.device") + "".");

save and update from the winrar app.
Try flashing again but disable the zip verification......Done

Big ups to Edwin270
