I'm having a similar problem with flashing CM11 nightlies. This is what I have done:
I have been running MaximusHD for a couple of months. Before that I was running CM11 nightlies just fine.
I used this guide (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2322755
) to successfully downgrade to hboot 2.15. I then ran MIUI for a few days, which worked fine, but I still wanted the AOSP goodness that you get with a CM-based ROM, so I decided to change to the official CM11 nightlies.
I then tried to flash CM11 (and also PA and Vanir, both based on CM11, plus several other versions of the nightlies, which I found on download.cyanogenmod.com) in TWRP 18.104.22.168. Each time failed with the error: "E:Error executing updater binary in zip 'name-of-zip'".
Then I looked at the CM11 OP on XDA (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2528113
). I read that you must have one of the two "updated recoveries". While I thought that the zips should flash on TWRP 22.214.171.124, I flashed those recoveries via fastboot also. When flashing the same files as above on the modified TWRP 126.96.36.199, I got exactly the same error as I did with 188.8.131.52. When I tried flashing the ROMs on ClockWorkMod, I got a "Status 7" error.
I googled around a bit and found some (old!) posts on various forums that said that there was a recovery called philz-touch that seemed to be working for some people. I downloaded it, flashed it, and got another "status 7" error when I tried to flash any of the zips.
Then I tried using several versions of TWRP (all the ones here http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/ville
from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 to be precise) and tried flashing each of the zips again. Still no luck.
Other things I have tried:
*I re-ran the steps here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2322755
) to ensure that it had definitely worked the first time.
*I tried using the hboot 2.15 and 2.13 (both modded and unmodded) that I found here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...74317537341266
*I tried re-downloading the ROM zips that I had been flashing to make sure that none of them had been corrupted in any way.
*I tried flashing the CM10.2 stable ROM that I found on download.cyanogenmod.com. It flashed no problem and booted fine with no fuss.
I feel like I am the only one on the internet who is having these issues even after changing to the updated recoveries! Please excuse my English, it is not my first language! I would really appreciate some help on this, as I have absolutely no idea what to do.
Thank you very much!
