Not sure why this is happening but it sucks.

Yea that's weird. You cab edit the updater script so that it doesn't check the device before it flashes but do so at your own risk. It's a safety feature but you say you have the 959 so you should be fine. Try flashing the twrp recovery from the OP of this thread and try again first to just to be safe. I don't use cwm recovery anymore and haven't for as long as I can remember

Charging port is bad then. Even if it charges that doesn't mean the USB portion will work. I've put in 3 new ports and they always go bad in a short amount of time

Any particular reason you want to use cm 9? That's ics correct?

Do not use ROM manager with this phone FOR ANYTHING!! it has bricked many of our phones.

If you want to use JB you're going to need to use Odin and one of the cwm 6.0.2.7 .tar files.
For kitkat ROMs you must use cwm 6.0.4.5

Once you have cwm installed you can flash any ROM from the i777 android development/ported development as they already come rooted.

The only difference between this phone and the i777 is that the kernel and recovery are on a separate partition.

EDIT: if you've already got the latest cwm, you can just flash any of mr-cook's recovery zips in recovery, then reboot recovery. I personally use twrp 2.7.1.0 for my kitkat ROMs. I've come to prefer it over cwm

This is an exact copy of the text.
--Installing: /storage/sdcard1/cm-10.1.3-i777.zip
Finding Package...
Opening Package...

assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "i777" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "i777" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "SGH-I777" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "SGH-I777" || getprop("ro.product.device") == "SGH-S959G" || getprop(ro.build.product) == "SG-S959G"

According to this, you're flashing a JB ROM. Download a cwm 6.0.2.7 zip from the op and flash in recovery, reboot recovery and try again. Of you're on the latest cwm you're going to have to flash a kitkat ROM

If your using CWM 6.0.4.4 or newer last I knew its not compatible with anything less than kitkat. Could be wrong though. Haven't read much on this thread since getting this device.

Edit: Perfect example of not reading this much anymore.

Lol. Don't forget our state bird.The mosquito. Thanks for the TWRP zip. I was having trouble updating recovery and your zip did the trick. Now running a custom KK rom that's great!

Assert failed
Sorry to post to an older thread but I'm hoping someone can help. I followed instructions from OP and everything went great until I went to install the CM 10.1 I get an assert failed getprop Status 7. Root installed and is running fine as is CWM 6.0.4.5. Any ideas I tried doing a search but the only mention of this error looks like it was due to a bad release that was fixed. I'm getting this if us Cm 10.1 or 10.2 nightly from the link in the original post. Thanks for any help.

The recovery you are using is ONLY kitkat compatible

The op needs to be updated with this'd information...

The latest cwm is only for kitkat ROMs, that's cm 11+. Of you want to go with jelly bean ROMs like the one you're trying to use, you need to use cwm 6.0.2.7 it's older but JB won't flash on the newer ones. There are a few different versions but any will work as long add it's philZ, AJK, or 6.0.2.7

Since you already have cwm installed you can just DL the zips and flash them in recovery then reboot "recovery" and it will be complete. No need for Odin now. Try that and get back to us

I think I'm just going to replace CWM with the new TWRP in the op. It seems to be easy more compatible. Plus I like it better.

EDIT: Done. Op updated to install TWRP with Odin to be more compatible.
