    I am stuck. I've tried to figure out whats going on but I am resorting to asking for help for lack of any other options. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I've been swapping ROMs all day, trying out insanely clean, CM6RC1, and now Sapphire 0.8.4. I haven't encountered any issues until 0.8.4. For the record, I always do a full wipe, several times before flashing a new ROM. When I try installing the Sapphire ROM I get this error:

    Welcome to Sapphire-0.8.4-Droid!
    assert failed: !less_than_int(1277333407, getprop("ro.build.date.utc"))
    E:Error in /sdcard/1rom/sapphire-0.8.4-update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    I can install Sapphire v.0.7.0 as well as any other ROM I want, but I can't install 0.8.4. I can restore my backup and everything works just fine. I made sure to disable setcpu's on-boot features so that wouldn't be skrewing with anything either. I've also tried flashing a different version of clockwork as well as a different kernel. That all worked fine, but it still wouldn't let me install 0.8.4. I'm not sure what I am missing but I would appreciate any help. I tried to do research on what this error means but I couldn't find much help, most people getting this error were trying to unroot their phone for some ridiculous reason :p

    OK well I'll keep messing with it but if anyone has any ideas let me know. Thanks!

    I've also tried running the permissions fix just in case it was something related to that. Didn't help.

    Downloaded it from where?

    Did you get it from the website or ROM Manager?

    Maybe try the other available download

    You can't use CWM 2.0.2.0. You have to use 2.0.1.3 or sooner. I had the same problem.

    Downloaded from the main link on the website first, tried the first mirror, then tried ROM Manager.

    Just tried SP Recovery and it worked. I will try the version of clockwork you mentioned and update on status just for curiosity sake.

    Some folks have reported success with CW 2.0.1.3. Others, like myself, unfortunately had to use SP Recovery.

    Yay 2.0.1.3. worked!

    Is it just me, or is it impossible to find a changelog on CW?

    It's not just you. I've been looking for weeks and even posted on the useless clockworkrecovery mod website forum (it's just all spam)

    Not to turn this into another CW v. SPR debate... but yeah. I don't get CW. Great tool and I love being able to install multiple updates without renaming in a single reboot... but I have not clue what they are doing on the backend considering they have a new version every week or so and SPR hasn't changed in months and it still works (far as I can tell) 100% of the time.

    I am guessing they are updating features (which is why I prefer it over SPR) but when I dig around in the menus I guess I don't even know what most of the stuff going on in there is all about. And I can't find anything anywhere with explanations of what they do or what new features have been added or how to use them or more importantly what not to do to skrew up your phone....

    ohwells! Trial and error I guess!

    Thanks everyone for your help! Loving it now that I'm back on Sapphire and running the new hottness!

    Why do you say unfortunately? Sprecovery is a great thing. I can't recall ever seeing a thread where it jacked someone's droid unlike the multiple threads saying "HELP OMFG MY DROID IS BRICKED!!!!" which usually end up being rom manager problems and not the rom.

    I find it really sad that more ppl don't support the dev that created sprecovery .... if it weren't for him...we'd all be jacked.

    That's my opinion.

    Here here. SPR just works. Full error checking, forces use of signed zips, I've never once had a bad install from SPR. If the zip has an issue SPR just won't even attempt the install.

    Worked perfectly fine for me, too. I was even able to apply the rom and gapps package at the same time using rom manager. Didn't need to wipe data coming from 0.7.0, it came up just fine. Then applied the black statusbar theme, also worked fine. Then I used the sweet new GEM Settings app to remove the clock (and rebooted), and it worked perfectly, too.

    And it seems like they are getting back into the swing of things, and are saying that after their 2.2 ROM is released in the next week or two, they are planning on working on SPR again.

    Great to hear :D although I can't see how they'd need to improve on it!

    @ the OP...I'm glad you got it all worked out.

    Eliminating the need to rename all ROM's/Kernel's/Theme's "update.zip" and allowing the install of a ROM from anywhere on the SD Card and not just from the root would worthwhile improvements.

    Thanks for that tip ... after downloading, redownloading, re-redownloading, and Googling on what the heck Error 7 meant, glad to see this. And install went well ... at last ... after going back to 2.0.1.3! dancedroid

    Because I prefer CW, have never had an issue with it until today, and because it was a big pain to rename three files to update.zip when I'm used to not having to do so.

    I find it sad that somehow I'm criticized for using the tool of my choice because others have had problems.

    I use cw, cvp uses spr... its a matter of preference... that's all...

    :)

    Main reason I use cw is because of people that use rommanager, if there is an ssue I will have ran into it before they have and announced to other cw users what the fix is so they can relay that info as well :) I try anyway :p

    Yeah I would love to support SPR for everything its given us but I have to give props to CW too for innovative features to a core functional tool. I could care less about rom manager other than an easy way to flash new versions of SPR/CW. Never use it for downloading or installing roms, but that's just my personal preference.

    I think that's what open source is all about. Its about giving respect to those who innovate and being proud when others improve upon or take your ideas different directions. I love all the options available to Android and that we aren't locked into some restrictive tool some business exec chose because it looked best on his bottom line.

    So keep up the good work all you who make Android awesome! I may or may not always use your tool, but your ideas will live on in my cache forever..... ;) (well, actually not because I wipe it everytime I flash a new rom, but it sounded good)
