Hi Guys,
I've read a few of the threads on this but i can't seem to get a hold of it.

Here is the tail end of my error log:
-- Installing: SDCARD:/update-cm-6.1.2-Droid-signed.zip

I:Update location: SDCARD:/update-cm-6.1.2-Droid-signed.zip

I cannot seem to figure out why this isn't working. I have rooted my phone succesfully and installed the Rom Manager (premium in fact) and have tried this with both cyan and bugless beast and i get the same error. I am running a Motorola Droid 2, is there something I'm missing? I apologize in advance, I'm in the middle of a snow storm so i haven't had all the tiem in the world to dedicate to fixing the problem myself.

I don't know, it could be something with the zip. Have you flashes zip files successfully with rzrecovery before?

Liquid sent me a rom to test, it ended up being the zip. I was just wondering what the error number meant

I've had status 7 when I have used the wrong tools or compression settings to make an update.zip, I think 7 is an unhelpful "something has gone wrong" error

Hi. Until recently, I was running BAKED on my Galaxy S3, but was running into too many issues with it, so I thought I'd start fresh. I used Odin to flash back to stock ICS, and have followed the basic steps to flash a new rom (root, unlock bootloader, flash CWM, boot into recovery, wipe data, flash rom), but each time, and with each rom I keep running into Error 7. I'm using the d2vzw versions, which I'm pretty sure are the ones that apply to my SCH-i535, and I'm following the instructions to a t, so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help?

You need to find the correct rom for your phone. Using a Motorola Droid 2 rom on a Samsung Galaxy S3 will never work.

As I said, I'm fairly certain d2vzw is the rom associated with the Galaxy S3 SCH-i535.

Is your recovery up to date?

that is your problem, as the current CWM recovery version for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 is 6.0.3.1 and yes it makes a difference.

Oh, thanks! For S3's you need to flash CWM through Odin, yeah? I don't think they have a .tar.md5 file for the sch-i535 yet. At least I can't find one. :/
