I assume at least half of Android users get Error status 6 while flashing ROMs. This can be explained in 2 reasons.
Quote:

Number 1:The developer of the ROM was too stupid to fix this mistake

or
Quote:

Number 2: You are tying to port a ROM and those errors come to you

So lets start fixing.
Quote:

Extract the ROM. Open META-INF com google android and open with Notepad++ updater-scipt.
Find the line called mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/some kind of Letters and Numbers ", "/system");
This command is telling the device to mount the system from a path. Each device has a different path.
The path is those some kind of letters and numbers up bellow.
Those numbers and letters are different for every device.
So maybe the letters are not correct and it can't find the path to mount the data.
What we need to do is change the path. For the path that is for your device.
Easiest way to do this is to find a ROM meant and tested for your device, open updater-script, got to the same line and replace the path.
Example change mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p25", "/system"); to mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p22", "/system");

Quote:

You may also find these two lines
format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/some kind of letters and numbers", "0", "/system");
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/some kind of letters and numbers", "/system");
The first line is telling the device to format the data.
The second line is telling the device to mount the data
The error is similar to the error up.
You need to change the path for the data
But the path for the data is different for the path for the system
So go to the same path on the ROM for your device and change the code
But remember the codes for the data and for the system are not the same.
Example Change format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p29", "0", "/system"); and
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p29", "/system"); to format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p20", "0", "/system");
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p20", "/system");

And the errors should be fixed.
Post a reply there is still an error.:P
Leave a tnx or donate if I helped.

i've tried your solution for the cm7.2 rc3 aa-oc-firekernel rom for Galaxy Ace.

After having a status 7 error i removed the lines containing assert... etc.

now I'm gettin the status 6 error and i've modified the format and mount lines.

I've looked in 2 similar roms which can be flashed (one of 'm is my current rom).

the other one is the rom i've used before, so both work.

these roms start as follows:
Code:
format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/stl12", "0");
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/stl12", "/system");
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
symlink("Roboto-Bold.ttf", "/system/fonts/DroidSans-Bold.ttf");
symlink("Roboto-Regular.ttf", "/system/fonts/DroidSans.ttf");
symlink("busybox", "/system/xbin/[", "/system/xbin/[[",
the update-script from the rom I'd like to flash starts like this:
Code:
package_extract_file("system/bin/backuptool.sh", "/tmp/backuptool.sh");
set_perm(0, 0, 0777, "/tmp/backuptool.sh");
run_program("/tmp/backuptool.sh", "backup");
show_progress(0.500000, 0);
format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/stl12", "0");
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/stl12", "/system");
package_extract_dir("recovery", "/system");
package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
symlink("busybox", "/system/xbin/[", "/system/xbin/[[",
a bit different but the format and mount lines are indentical.
I can't figure out why I'm keep getting this status 6 error.

can you help me with it?

if you get a Status 7 error then you have to flash the rom using different recovery.
hope I helped, if yes then plz hit the thx button.

i'm getting Status 6 error with this
Code:
assert(getprop("ro.product.device") == "mako" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "mako" || abort("E3004: This package is for device: mako; this device is " + getprop("ro.product.device") + "."););

mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system", "/system", "");
run_program("/tmp/install/bin/backuptool.sh", "backup");
unmount("/system");
if is_mounted("/data") then
package_extract_file("META-INF/org/cyanogenmod/releasekey", "/tmp/releasekey");
run_program("/tmp/install/bin/otasigcheck.sh") != "31744" || abort("Can't install this package on top of incompatible data. Please try another package or run a factory reset");
else

unmount("/data");
endif;
show_progress(0.750000, 0);
ui_print("Patching system image unconditionally...");
block_image_update("/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system", package_extract_file("system.transfer.list"), "system.new.dat", "system.patch.dat") ||
  abort("E1001: Failed to update system image.");
show_progress(0.020000, 10);

set_perm_recursive(0, 0, 0644, "/system/build.prop");
unmount("/system");
set_progress(1.000000);
i just added extra flashing process..
placed files in zip but getting error
i added extra lines from here
Code:
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system", "/system", "");
ui_print("flashing substratum");
package_extract_file("Substratum.apk", "/system/app/Substratum/Substratum.apk");
set_perm_recursive(0, 0, 0644, "/system/app/Substratum/Substratum.apk");
set_perm_recursive(0, 0, 0644, "/system/build.prop");
unmount("/system");
set_progress(1.000000);
please reply asap..
