[ FIXED! ] Can't flash FRF91, throws "assert failed... getprop("ro.build.date.utc")"

I tried re-downloading the FRF91, using a different recovery to flash it.. nothing works.
I can flash Cyan 6 fine, but not FRF91 for some reason.

Throws this:

assert failed: !less_than_int(1277930906, getprop("ro.build.date.utc"))
E: Error in /sdcard/update.zip


Anybody got any idea on how to fix this?

EDIT: I guess it's complaining that the build date of the FRF91 is less than the current ROM's build date? How can I bypass the date check then?

Well, I stumbled on a solution for this.
In case someone has this in the future... what you need to do is use an older version of recovery.
I've used the ROM Manager app to install Clockwork Recovery v2.0.1.3, then flashed the FRF91 just fine.
