    Followed this thread:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ha...ng-only-sprecovery-terminal-emulator-zip.html

    with this BB:

    AllDroid - View topic - [ROM 2.1] Bugless Beast V0.5 (2/25/10) STABLE

    Had stock 2.0.1 on the Droid, never touched with anything like this. Rooted fine, little ninja, made the backup, etc...

    Everything was going fine;

    Installing Bugless Beast...
    Making Things Beautiful...
    Install Almost Done...

    and then this:

    assert failed: write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img","boot")
    E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    any ideas?

    I can get into the Recovery and try to restore nandroid but it just goes to white "M" over and over and over. Help?

    No. I have only tried to install the update.zip and then to restore the backup.

    So, i should wipe the cache and then...

    Kind of deflated now, after all this.

    I'm not clear what your last successful step was. I used Matt's process to root and install bb. without any issues. I may be wrong but since you used the advanced android to make a copy I think you should select the advance restore.

    Last successful step seemed to be #40 to be honest.

    Are you sure you had the correct update.zip file?

    Can you use the advanced recovery and start over?

    yes you should. When you switch from 2.0.1 to 2.1 you need to wipe data and cache

    sounds like you need to reflash boot.

    Let me tell you all how I fixed this... after I got the assert ERROR (the same as original poster), I used the BuglessBeast Nandroid restore method and it seems to work like a charm...

    Not sure what the root cause is... but this method fixed my issue.

    Guys I am having the same problems as the OP fail on step7. My SD card is completely blank and I am thinking this has something to do with it. I can boot into the phone but it is rebooting constantly. I have also tried advanced Nandroid restore but there is basically no files or images available on the SD card other than Pete's newest bugless beast update.zip. Can someone please help me? I am trying to ANYTHING restore to factory, restore bugless beast rooted, anything!

    I'm glad to assist but I want to get a clear understanding of your situation.

    I am concerned that your SD card does not have a Nandroid (SPRecovery) file or Clockworkmod(RomManager/Clokwork) file. These particular files are used to store your backups.

    What recovery process are your using SPR or RM/CW?
    If your using SPR did you create a file on your SD card named Nandroid?
    Did you wipe or format your SD card? I'm trying to learn what wiped your SD card?

    If you can not find a backup then you many need to use of of these links to recover.

    Thank you I have figured out the problem. What I did was get the official seed from Pete's thread for Bugless Beast V0.1 in update.zip format. I copied it over to my SD card and used SPR to install and everything is stable now. The problem was my original source for the update.zip file off some thread. I should have known better because the size was only 10MB and usually they are 60-80MB. Also an indication of file corruption is the failed step 7 (or any step) because something is not right with the install files in update.zip. I've also seen this occur just off corruption from the file transfer process from PC to the SD card before install.

    This was what prompted me to find another source and try dragging and dropping again back to the SD card. Hope this helps someone.
