I haven't installed it on USB, but i think the error message says it clearly enough... check your flash, also check back in the posts how to exactly install it on USB, there might be something you are missing.

Of course, I have enough free space on flash drive. That is not the problem. I repaired bad sectors on flash drive and formatted. Now I don't get the error about more space needed but again this error: Failed to extract rootfs.tar.gz archive! Installing to internal memory works fine. I tried two flash drives but both of them give Failed to extract rootfs.tar.gz archive! error. I am using old TWRP and multirom.

Hi there, I'm having the same issue installing ubuntu-13.04-preinstalled on my N7 2012. Been using Multirom for about a year now and it has always worked great. I upgraded to v33a and then was forced to reinstall Ubuntu 13.04, due to a failed dist-upgrade-nothing to do with MRom. Removed the old Ubuntu 13.04 (had installed fine under v32) and attempted to reinstall it from exactly the same package. Error: "Failed to extract rootfs.tar.gz archive!". Redownloaded the package several times in case of corruption. Didn't work.

Eventually tried Arch Linux from an mrom package made from a rootfs.tar.gz from ArchARM. Worked but then ran into the same error I've had with any Linux rom, rom_info.txt specifies the filesystem incorrectly (f2fs instead of ext4) although its an easy fix and probably unrelated. Bluez5 bluetooth package doesn't play nice with my N7 2012 so I want to go back to Ubuntu.

Perhaps v33 added some extra verification for the rootfs.tar.gz which incorrectly applies to Ubuntu, or maybe the Ubuntu img is due an upgrade (to mrom?)?

Using Multirom v33a with TWRP 3.0.0-0 (default MRom recovery) on a 32GB Nexus 7 2012 with default filesystems for all except cache (f2fs). Only CM12.1 and Arch Linux are currently installed and there is approx. 8GB free space.

I have a problem. When I go into Swap ROMs section and I want to duplicate secondary ROM, there are no seconadary ROMs listed so I cannot choose which one to duplicate. Anyone facing the same problem?

I am sorry but I just cannot seem to find how to run kitkat primary and MM secondary, the secondary rom will not boot, think its a kernel thing, do I just flash a patched kernel to the secondary ROM ? Somebody please put me out of misery as nothing I search for returns anything of sense
"Multirom kk primary and MM secondary"
I do not get errors in recovery but the secondary rom just will not boot, I did not have this problem when I had a MM rom in primary,
Thanks for any help

You need to have a "patched kernel" flashed to the PRIMARY ROM. This allows it to boot the secondary kernel. You can find patched kernels in the 2nd post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...51&postcount=2

Thanks but the primary kernel I am using already has the patches, how do I get the secondary rom to use its own kernel? I am using SlimKat (KK) and bricked kernel,multirom manager reports Kernel: has kexec-hardboot patch I would like to keep slimkat as primary

Yeah I got it now I think GtrCraft made a compatible aosp kernel which I downloaded, cant find reference to his post though as I see there is no patched kernel for mm in the op.
Also in the op it does say you only need the patched kernel for primary rom
"You need to have kernel with kexec-hardboot patch only in your primary ROM!"
Will try flashing the patched MM kernel to the secondary rom and see whats what, thanks for your responses.

I quoted Tassadar from OP in my first post, please read carefully, it's there under updating/changing ROMs.
This Kernel is patched I'm using it... Even with slimkat as primary and DU MM as secondary...

Going to try adding the patched boot image to the rom zip and reflash it
