Hi Guys,

this is the first time im instaling CM9 on my xperia arc Lt15i doing the folowing:

- rooted device
- opened blocked bootloader (now using clockworkmod 5)

I downloaded the update-cm-9-20120404-NIGHTLY-anzu-signed.zip and also update-cm-7.2.0-RC1-anzu-signed.zip when i started the phone and tried to flash after doing wipe data/factory reset i got the following error:

getprop("ro.product.device") == "LT15a" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "LT15a" ||        getprop("ro.product.device") == "anzu" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "anzu"
E:Error in /sdcard/update-cm-9-20120404-NIGHTLY-anzu-signed.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.
result was NULL, message is: assert failed: install_zip("/sdcard/update-cm-9-20120404-NIGHTLY-anzu-signed.zip")

I spent hours reading and cant find what to do in order to install the rom, help will be appreciated!

The Arc variant we target is the LT15a (you have a LT15i). I believe the difference is a slight variance in hardware. That said, the following comes with a big do this at your own risk

You can open the zip file, open the updater-script file (with something like gedit or notepadd++) and remove the getprop lines. Rezip the file and you will now be able to flash the zip.
