Hi Everyone,

I have tried and tried, but my phone refuses to let CM11 install. I had been running CM10.2, but I had all sorts of issues, so I decided to go all the way back to stock, re-root, get twrp again. It still won't install CM11. TWRP just says "failed" The log in twrp says:

set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed
E:Error executing updater binary in zip "/sdcard/Roms/cm-11-xyzblah.zip
Error flashing zipo '/sdcard/Roms/cm-11-xyzblah.zip'
Updating partition details

Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bob

I like TWRP for the OTG support.
You need to update the latest version:

Try flashing Philz. Its based on CWM but much better. (Includes OTG)
Plus you can still use any backup you made in TWRP

Hmm, okay, thanks. I see the .lok files on there, but I don't know what to do with them. I did have an older version of TWRP. I went through the process they detail in that thread with the old one, but I just flashed the newest version from twrp. Do I need to go back through and do something with loki? This part gets me very confused.
