Hey guys, I'm installing a new custom OS on my phone and I only did this once before (like 6 months ago.) As a result, I had forgotten how, but the resources on this site helped get me most of the way there. I updated my recovery tools, made a new nandroid backup, downloaded my OS onto the SD card. the OS file I downloaded was a .zip and it contained a boot.img, and 3 folders named 'data' 'METa-INF' and 'system.' My directory structure looks like this:
sdcard/nandroid/blue/(those three folders and the boot.img I mentioned)
I named it "blue" on my own because the zip file did not contain a folder. I know all the walkthroughs say to extract the rom folder from its zip and place this folder onto the sd, but like I said there was no folder in my zip so I made my own folder. Is this an issue?
Whenever I go into recovery mode and try to restore the 'blue' option my droid throws out status 25 error. Everything I'm reading says status 25 means the directory structure is wrong but it seems right to me?
One thing I am noticing is that the other two files I can choose to recover (one is OEM backup and one is the backup I made this afternoon) have a different file structure. Inside their folders they contain a boot.img, cache.rar, data.rar, misc.img, nandroid.md5, recovery.img, and system.rar. The new rom folder doesn't have these things, just the three folders and one .img I listed above.
What am I doing wrong? I really want to get this done
