Ok so i've compiled a ROM from source and am trying to flash it, but every time I flash I get this error:

Code:
E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/external_sd/Flash This/full_xt926.bdh.signed.zip'
Error flashing zip '/external_sd/Flash This/full_xt926.bdh.signed.zip'

I haven't really been able to find much on this through a 3 day google search. I found one topic that suggested it's the recovery but I know this is not the recovery, this is a ROM zip issue.

This is the recovery.log

Code:
Installing '/external_sd/Flash This/full_xt926.bdh.signed.zip'...
Checking for MD5 file...
I:Cannot find file /external_sd/Flash This/full_xt926.bdh.signed.zip.md5
Skipping MD5 check: no MD5 file found.
line 4 col 37: syntax error, unexpected STRING, expecting $end
1 parse errors
E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/external_sd/Flash This/full_xt926.bdh.signed.zip'
Error flashing zip '/external_sd/Flash This/full_xt926.bdh.signed.zip'
Any help is greatly appreciated.

More than likely there is something wrong in your updater script. About two threads down is a guide I'm working on how to create flashable.zips, haven't gotten to ROMs yet but thered may be stuff there that will help you.
If you want give me a copy of your updater-script and ill look it over for you, actually if you don't mind posting this along with your question again in the other thread that would be awesome. The less threads on similar stuff in xda the less clutter there is to sift through and easeir to find answers

Updater script error, it's expecting the end of the line but it encounters something else instead

Use the column and line numbers it gives you to narrow down the part of the script that is going wrong.
