assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device")

2 posts in this topic

Friend tried to upgrade his phone the other night and ended up in a weird state. He can boot into recovery but cannot flash either the stable or the nightly. He did manage to get the 7.1 stable installed but due to some weirdness he tried to restore his nandroid. That's where things got messed up. Now whenever a flash is attempted we get the asset failed: getprop error.

"assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") =="captivate" || getprop("ro.build.product") =="captivate" || getprop("ro.product.board") =="captivate" || getprop("ro.product.device") =="captivatemtd" || getprop("ro.build.product") =="captivatemtd" || getprop("ro.product.board") =="captivatemtd" ||getprop("ro.product.device") =="SGH-I897" || getprop("ro.build.product") =="SGH-I896" || getprop("ro.product.board") =="SGH-I896" || getprop("ro.product.device") =="SGH-I897" || getprop("ro.build.product") =="SGH-I897" || getprop("ro.product.board") =="SGH-I897"
E: Error in /sdcard/update-cm-7.1.0-Captivate-signed.zip
(Status 7)[/CODE]

all the build I am getting assert failed error.

I tried changing in build.prop ,from "captivatemtd" to "captivate" as recommended somewhere.

Tried a resolution from another user

build.prop was absent in my device as it was first flash/had wiped cahe and sdcard earlier.

So removed the assert cmds from META-INF\com\google\android\update-script from build zip file.It worked like charm.

No difference

I can't get the phone to connect in windows to do either of those revert to stock methods.

Is there a way to get around this error or is there a way to get back to stock using linux.

Any ideas?
