While flashing a rom, sometimes we get a "status 7 error". This Guide helps you to get out from it, and flash your favourite rom. Let's get started.


Move to META_INF > COM > GOOGLE > ANDROID by extracting the rom.
Here you will find a file "updater-script". Rename this file as updater-script.doc (microsoft word format) or use notepad++ (preferably)
(in some pc, extensions are nor visible. to make them visible, follow these steps)
Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking
Folder Options.
Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, do one of the following:
To display file extensions, clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

Double click to open it( microsoft word preferred)
delete text, starting from "assert ....... till the semicolon ( of the last getprop command).

(See the image in the attached file for carefully deleting the lines. Click this link.)


Save the file now.
Again rename the file, and delete the .doc extention
Now go back and zip these files again. and you will get a zipped rom.


And the status 7 error has now been removed!

hey!
while flashing roms, many times we get a "status 7 error". while searching in many threads, we do not get how to resolve it. i will tell you each and every thing step by step
so i made a NOOB FRIENDLY WAY TO RESOLVE STATUS 7 ERROR

make sure that the rom you have downloaded matches your phone model, if you flashed some other rom, you may hard brick your device.

1. First extract your rom (for example using 7-zip)
2. Go to the folder META_INF > COM > GOOGLE > ANDROID
3. Here you will find a file "updater-script"
4. Rename this file as updater-script.doc (microsoft word format)
(in some pc, extensions are nor visible. to make them visible, follow these steps)
Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking
Folder Options.
Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, do one of the following:
To display file extensions, clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

5. Double click to open it( microsoft word preferred)
6. delete text, starting from "assert ....... till the semicolon(;) of the last getprop command. (see image in attached file-lines to delete)
7. Now save the file
8. Again rename the file, and delete the .doc extention
9. now go back to the main rom folder where you extracted the 3 files. zip these files again. and you will get a zipped rom.

and the status 7 error has now been removed!:good:
happy flashing :victory::victory:

at last, as you read in every post, i am not responsible for any bricked device.

so the advice is to remove the device check?
How about a tip on how to use the proper device id or name?
So where do I look in the device to use the name that works?
That would be better imho.
I did try to use the values in the build.prop file from the running device, but that did not work eiter.

Hi,

I still get status 7 after using this guide.
any advice?
My Android Solutions

[27] Problem:- ClockworkMod Recovery giving Status 7 error "Installation aborted".

Solution:- One or some of the prerequisite requirement for the needed upgrade is missing or corrupted . So you may need to identify and replace that requirement for the installation to continue. Most likely could be due to wrong bootloader, wrong CWM, Wrong IMEI, Wrong Radio etc

Check this out!You , YES! you are an " Android ". Not your phone but U.

I have had Error 7 due to delete many apps and unnecessary files in the rom. I resolved my problem flashing again the rom (previous rom) that I was removing apps and files. Then, I flash the new rom and problem resolved. Regards.

P.D. I have FXP238 CM10 installed and running ok.
