Use only old version of Flashtool etc 0.9.8.0 up to 0.9.18.6.
New ver. of Flashtool isn't working with mobiles from 2011 year line.
You need to flash *.ftf file.
.587 = android 4.0.4
OK, thanks for the hint. I had here 0.9.18.4 installed from the past and it worked fine. Now I'll try to follow the instructions from wiki which I found at https://undocumented.software/wiki_dump/Install_CM_for_urushi.html

Or is there a better source for the instructions?

For stock only - use this one (with Google-translate) - https://4pda.to/forum/index.php?act=findpost&pid=23892776&anchor=Spoil-23892776-1

You need only to flash stock ROM, if you want CMXX, after you flash a stock, use instructions on first post like in this thread - https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...cyanogenmod-11-0-builds.2545354/post-47895754

his is an unofficial build of CM11.0.
This is an attempt to stay close to official cm11.0 and not make crazy hacks to make things working.
This is a pure CM build, only contains official CM features. I will not add any other external feature/app/etc.

WARNING: This ROM uses a modified internal memory layout.
Our /system partition is originally 400MB but this space is not enough for a fluid kitkat experience and a full installation with proper google apps.
Our /cache partition is also too small to fit art-cache when we enable the ART runtime. We originally had 100MB /cache but art-cache needs ~150mb of free space.
I have repartitioned the internal memory layout, giving:
450mb in /system
469,5mb in /data
8mb in /cache

If you want to use this ROM you will always have to use the included kernel or use a kernel that includes the layour changes. Bug reports with non-standard kernels will be ignored.
You will have to wipe the device and make a clean install.
You cannot restore nandroid backups from previous android versions or restore nandroid backups from this ROM to other ROMs that don't use the new partition layout since you risk corrupting the data.
I suggest to use Titanium Backup, Helium or any other similar app to backup your data if you really need to.

Requirements:

* Have the stock ICS 4.1.B.0.587 full ftf flashed (doesn't matter if you have flashed it in the past or if you flash it before installing cm11.0, it will work both ways)
* LT15i (Arc) users need to flash LT18i (Arc S) ftf
* MT15i (Neo) users need to flash MT11i (Neo V) ftf

Steps required for correct installation (order is important):
1: Flash boot.img in fastboot & reboot into recovery
2 (optional): If the device is not booting, reboot to bootloader again and run:
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase userdata
3: Enter recovery, go to mounts and storage
4: Format /system, then /data and then /cache (Important step!)
5: Flash update zip
6: Flash gapps (recommended package is the one provided in the link below)

Steps 2, 3 & 4 are not needed when you install new cm11 nightlies on top of older cm11 builds in the future

If you want to return to a ROM that doesn't use the new partition layout, you need to follow the above steps again (only replace boot.img & update zip with the ones you want to use).

Flash boot.img in fastboot & reboot into recovery
And I've hit the same problem as before. When I ran fastboot from command line it complained about not parsable partition size. I tried to use FlashTool to flash the kernel from boot.img and then used adb sideload to flash the system. Now it booted up successfully without crashes in the initial wizard. Thanks!

BTW are there any SD card partition requirements to run CM11? I remember there were 2 required (for data and for regular SD card storage), but that was probably for CM13, wasn't it?

Hi all
a bit of retrospect
I recently installed version CM 10.1 and today the news came that whatsapp will not work on versions below 4.4. Do I need to flash to the stock version or can I flash a new kernel and install version CM 11 from recovery?

Hello,
You can install a new rom over the old one.
But i'll recommend to flash stock Rom .587, and make a "clean" installation.

    Since people don't learn how to read, I can't handle this situation anymore.

    I come in the thread and instead of finding something useful, there are only the same posts repeated again and again, ignoring my posts and xda rules.

    Thread locked until further notice.
