When trying to flash my own made update.zips through CWM, I get the error message: Status 6.
This points toward a mistake in my updater-script file, but I cannot find my mistake.. I tried multiple things and ended up with this.. But it seems to be wrong! I keep getting (Status 6) error.

Please take a look and tell me what I am doing wrong!


ui_print("Google apps update for SuperSlim Edition");
ui_print("Performing Update");
ui_print("Mounting mount points");
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "mount", "/system");
show_progress(0.100000, 0);
ui_print("Installing applications and widgets");
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
set_perm_recursive(0, 0, 0755, 0644, "/system");
show_progress(0.100000, 10);
ui_print("Unmounting mount points);
run_program("/sbin/busybox", "umount", "/system");
ui_print("Installation complete, please reboot");

How does it become corrupt? I'm getting the same error and can't seem to get it working. I'm using notepad++. Files are zipped and signed but I keep getting error.

Does it give any more info after it gives you error status 6? Sometimes it will tell you exactly where the error is, although I don't see any errors in it.
