Try flash stock ftf file. Then flash kernel from the rom's zip (there should be boot.img) and then flash the rom via cwm

ok i did this, flash tft stock, reboot and flash boot.img from the rom, then install the zip.. but still the error, i think i have the correct error message (hard coz whit on white..)

finding ypdate package...
openning update package...
Installing update...
format() expects 5 args got 4

it's strange, in the topic of the rom they don't talk about sush error, so i think the rom is ok..

any idea ?
thx !

Sometimes some files in zip might be corrupted or u r zip can corrupt when u transfer it from PC that is due to faulty USB cable or faulty USB port so just download again and try or try a different USB cable and see
