    So I was on Sapphire 0.8.4 and it was working great but I decided to try out the new froyo leak FRG01 and then early this morning I decided I was going to go back to Sapphire and flash the alternate black theme. So I load up my sd card with all the needed zips (Sapphire, Gapps, Theme, Kernel, etc) and I'm all ready to flash this and then I start and it I get an error

    (assert failed: !less-than-int(1277333704, getprop("ro.build.date.utc))
    E: error in /sdcard/sapphire-0.8.4-update.zip (status 7) Installation aborted

    I have downloaded Sapphire over 4 times now and I really don't understand why it's not working

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    - DiGi

    You have to roll back to Clockwork 2.0.1.3 or flash sprecovery for it to flash. All later clockworks do not work.

    Yep, I had this exact issue. It was indeed my newer clockwork. I reflashed SPRecovery and it went flawlessly. The guys in #CVPCS on irc are a huge help. Thanks again guys!

    In rom manager if you scroll down to the bottom and select all clockwork recoveries it has 2.0.1.3 still in there along with a lot older and newer versions too.

    I have installed it using the newer clockwork recoveries, but I had to pull the updater-script file out of the update.zip file then edit it by deleting the line w/ the assert that keeps failing.. it is similar to this:

    assert(!less_than_int(1277837854, getprop("ro.build.date.utc")));

    then save the edited updater-script and drag it back into the update.zip, overwriting the original one. Save the update.zip and install via Clockwork recovery.

    Definitely not the preferred way to do it, but it can be done if you don't want to keep flashing different recoveries.

    Why exactly is that check needed/required? TIA

    Thanks much for this tip about modifying the updater-script. This could not have been any easier and took 5 minutes. Here are some screen shots in case this might help anyone running Windows.

    Location of the updater-script. It's just a plain text file. Drag it out of Winzip and open it with notepad.

    Remove line #2 so that the file looks like this. Then save it, drag it back into Winzip in the location depicted in the first screenshot. WinZip takes its sweet time re-compressing so be patient. Might take 1-5 minutes depending on the strength of your PC.

    [​IMG]

    Once done, put the .zip file out in the root directory of your SDCard and use ROM Manager to install it.
