Been looking to try a new recovery, thanks.

Edit: Quick question, is it okay to flash this using recovery tools? I would assume so, but the instructions make no mention of it. Am I just better off flashing it in TWRP or CWM recovery?

I only wish I would have tried this this sooner...my volume keys would have appreciated it.

You only flash the zip in recovery using either TWRP or CWM. Flash it, then reboot recovery.

If you are using the .tar.md5 file, flash that in odin and it'll overwrite the recovery image.

Edit: didn't even have to use Odin, I just booted into safe mode and it fixed it.

Dude, this Recovery is sooo friggin' killer!! Albeit a tad overwhelming with all the bells & whistles & whatnot, still so rad!!
I've always dug CWM over TWRP, even though most were ragin' about how cool TWRP is!?!? I've used both of 'em here & there, but I've just always had dependable results with CWM.
Thanks maang, you sir(s) deserve a cookie!!

I am having an issue flashing pacman nightly. No matter what version I try and flash, latest or one from 4 months ago that I know is a good download, I get a failed to install.

Code:
- Installing: /sdcard/Download/pac_d2vzw-nightly-20131229.zip
Finding update package...
I:Update location: /data/media/0/Download/pac_d2vzw-nightly-20131229.zip
Opening update package...
Installing update...
script aborted: assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "d2vzw" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "d2vzw"
assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "d2vzw" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "d2vzw"
E:Error in /data/media/0/Download/pac_d2vzw-nightly-20131229.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.

I have tried a dirty flash and a "new rom" wipe. Both return the same issue.

Ask cooker to update his update-binary or do it your self by replacing the one in the ROM you install

It's a known issue, many people are going to have the problem.

Pull the update-binary from another rom, or anything that does flash with the recovery, and replace the one in the rom of your choice with that one.

This has nothing to do with the recovery itself, and Phil can't do anything about it on his end. Rom builders have to update the script for it to work on this CWM base.

I know mastamoon has an unofficial cwm 6.0.4.5 recovery for use, I'm sure his kit kat rom likely has a working update-binary, try to flash that rom with this recovery. If it works, there's your answer.

    Any one notice a bug where it will ask you to restore settings to default when rebooting? If not then I will provide a log.

    it is a feature when you have a backup in sdcard while settings file was wiped from /data
    you can enable auto-restore option to skip prompt and always restore backup when settings are gone in a wipe /data

    Just an FYI, having some issues flashing the newest modem for the new TW 4.3 rom. I flashed the Rom fine but I get a status 7 error when trying to flash the modem.

    Copy the update-binary from that rom and replace the one in the modem zip with it, then it should flash.

    What do you mean "get latest binary from CM11 nightly"? I flashed the latest SuoerSU. I still get the same message "update binary."

    Download the latest cm11 nightly.

    Unzip the file, navigate to META-INF/com/google/android

    Pull the update binary out of it, and use that to replace the other update binary in every zip you want to flash. Every flashable zip has an update binary in that location.
