Exclamation [Q] OTA doesn't work with CWM Recovery

Hi everyone!

I installed a few days ago OmniROM on my freshly unlocked Nexus 4, with Franco's kernel and I really like it! I love that there are updates everyday!

But I never succeeded to perform it with built-in OTA updater. So I always flashed it as usual, and it works. But downloading the entire file everyday is boring.

So, when I start the installation via the built-in OTA updater, it reboots the phone into recovery (I use ClockworkMod Recovery v6.0.4.3), and then it says that it failed the installation. There are no problem after that, I just reboot normally. It actually says:

"Error processing ROM Manager script. Please verify that you are performing the backup, restore, or ROM installation from ROM Manager v4.4.0.0 or higher. /tmp/recovery.log was copied to /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log. Please open ROM Manager to report the issue".

I attached to the thread the log quoted in the error message.

So am I doing something wrong? I don't have the premium option of ROM Manager, and I saw there is an OTA option in the app. Does it mess with the built-in OTA updater?

Thanks in advance!

OTA updater won't work on CWM as it doesn't have "openrecoveryscript"
TWRP has this and works with no issues
If you consider my efforts worthwhile then Donate or Thank me

Okay, thanks.

For installing it, as I now have CWM, is it possible to install TWRP from their Android app and erase CWM?

Install GooManager and flash TWRP from it.

I think we're going to have to add some sort of message to the updater indicating that it won't work with any official CWM release (anything compiled with I_AM_KOUSH set) - These CWM releases block anything but ROM Manager from using the extendedcommands interface.
*so much sig updating needed*

I'm using the Philz Touch CWM and OTA is working fine, in fact everything seems to be working just fine.

Okay, so the OTA worked. Thanks you guys!

A question, is it normal that SuperSU is removed each time I upgrade?
