Why was I getting that error? It's gone now I just want to make sure it's answered for everyone else. I was flashing a rom and it was doing that. Do a reboot. Your system wont be there so reboot into botoloader and go back into recovery.

I'm getting the same error when trying to flash and when I reboot I can't get past the htc screen. I'm using the twrp recovery and I have tried resetting a few times.


I tried resetting my phone a couple more times and it finally just worked. I have no clue what causes this.

Same thing
Trying to flash a kernal. I tried several reboots of bootloader and recovery and no luck. I am going to flash clockwork since I am using team wins recovery and see if that works.

Yeah had this error too. I think it happens when you try to flash a different kernel on the stock ROM. After I switched to a different ROM the error went away.

I'm having the same issues, but rebooting isn't helping. TWRP needs to be updated to address this issue. Until then, no ROMs for me.

That error will usually occur with signature verification failures, you need to make sure that signature verification isn't turned on when installing an unsigned rom.

It would make sense if this has to do with permissions, but I have signature verification turned off in the bootloader. Is there somewhere else that signature verification needs to be turned off?

I'm getting this error trying to root the phone using the sticky guide. It happens when I try to flash the superuser file.
