When installing certain custom ROMs on your rooted Galaxy S 3, you will encounter “Status 7″ error issues once in a while with ClockworkMod (CWM) Recovery or with TWRP recovery.

Make sure you are installing a ROM from T-Mobile Galaxy S3 development section. I am not responsible if you're too stupid enough to flash a ROM and brick your phone.

Step 1. Download the ROM zip file to your phone and extract it using Root explorer.

Step 2. Once unzipped, browse to where you extracted the ROM and look for the META-INF/com/google/android directory. You will find two files called “update-binary” and “updater-script”.

Step 3. Open “updater-script” with the build in text file editor in Root Explorer.

Step 4. Get rid of the line starting with “assert” to next semi-colon. Usually this is the first line or one of the first lines at the top of the text file. Just delete them. It will look something like this:

assert:getprop (ro.bootloader) == "T999UVDLJA"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVDLJA"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVDLJC"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVDMD5"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVUEMJC"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999UVVLDLL1"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999LUVAMB7"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999VVLDMF2"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999VVLUEMK5"<br />
getprop ("ro.bootloader") == "T999LUVUBMK4"<br />
<br />;

Step 5. Save the file.

Step 6. There will be 2 files: "updater-script" and “updater-script.bak”. Just delete “updater-script.bak”.

Step 7. Rezip all the files you've unzipped with Root Explorer.

Step 8. Try re-installing ROM, now it should install fine without Status 7 error.
