The Newest Cyanogenmod Updates

26 posts in this topic

Hey there, looking for some help. I run CM on my Nexus 4, and for some reason, when I tried to update to the 2013/02/12 build, I wasn't able to update my phone. When I did the OTA update my phone just went to the initial Google boot screen and stays there, no matter what I do. I went into recovery and flashed an older version of CM, which worked, but since then none of the newest CM updates have been able to successfully install.

Help me out?

I don't use the built-in updater for my N4. Rather, I use CyanDelta and I haven't had any issues with that. I just used it to update to the 20120215 earlier today.

Alright I gave CyanDelta a shot but that didn't work either. When I select the zip from get.cm it says "This is not a valid zip file." I even tried the OTA update zip but that wasn't valid either.

:/

Its probably also worth mentioning that the other day I wiped my data and cache in recovery then tried to install a get.cm zip, but this also didn't work out.

Your downloads might be getting corrupted. I know that CyanDelta works as I used it yesterday to update my phone, and I got it installed on my brother's phone and updated his last night.

Also, when I first tried to import a zip, I accidentally imported the md5 hash of the zip, since the zip was deleted after the last update. Once I downloaded whatever version he was running from http://get.cm, it worked perfectly.

Yes I believe I am getting my files corrupted somehow.

One more interesting point I forgot to mention, was that when I first encountered this problem, I would try to install the update, but it would say that it is an "Untrusted package." It would take me to a recovery screen where it gave me an option to "Install untrustedpackage.zip", and when I would click it, I would be sent to an infinitely long Google boot screen.

Afterwards, I reflashed an older version of CM, went into my settings, and ticked the box for installing things from unknown sources. Now, when I try to install the new CM updates, it doesnt mention if its an untrusted or not, I just go straight into the boot screen.

How could I fix this?

I have not heard of the untrusted package for system updates... maybe it was something in a previous version that has since been removed. If you want it to prevent you from installing apks from outside the play store, it is found under Settings -> Security -> Unknown sources.

Alright that's done, but now whenever I try to install the update I just go straight to the Google boot screen and my n4 stays there indefinitely, until I reinstall an older version of CM from the recovery.

What older version of CM are you coming from? 10 has a different partitioning scheme then earlier versions and it gives you a warning about reformating and you have to select the ROM again to confirm.

I'm running CyanogenMod 10.1-20130203-NIGHTLY-mako right now. That's the latest update that runs for me

I just tried the newest mako update, and it told me that is not a valid zip file either.

Also a large number of updates I try to install from the play store won't go through because of "Package file is invalid."

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I would try to re-flash the recovery then try again to flash a newer CM. You may even want to try a different recovery from whatever you are using now. It sounds like a lot of things have somehow been corrupt on your phone though so it could even be your internal storage going out but I wouldn't assume that to be the case just yet.

Yes, it definitely sounds like some corruption issues. Hopefully it is just in the transferring and not in your phone itself. Do you download your files directly through the phone or do you download them to the computer and then transfer them over?

I download them through the phone directly. I went into ROM Manager and selected "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery", went through with the install, and tried installing CM again, the Feb 15th mako update, and it still didn't work.

This is exactly what I see in the recovery text:

-- Installing: /sdcard/0/cmupdater/cm-10.1020130216-NIGHTLY-mako.zip

Finding update package...

Opening update package...

Installing update...

set_perm: some changes failed

E:Error in /sdcard/0/cmupdater/cm-10.1-20130216-NIGHTLY-mako.zip

(Status 7)

Installation aborted.

That sounds like it might be the stock recovery. Maybe you should try twrp instead of clockworkmod. You can download the recovery image from their site and then flash it using fastboot, or you can try and do it from within CM using Goo Manager (kinda like ROM Manager).

Can anybody confirm that the newest nightly is 4.2.2 compatible? Google can say yes, but its not legit as far as im concerned until its from here.

Compatible with what? I've been running 4.2.2 since the 15th on my Nexus 4 and haven't run into any issues.

Maybe a silly question but is there a forum for Nexus 4 Nightlies? I would like to know if they are fairly stable and if everything is working.

I have just ordered a nexus 4 (hope its a big upgrade from my LG P990)

There are no forums currently. I am working with the forum administrator to get the missing subforums created for all the devices CM supports. Real life got in the way...

But, speaking from experience, I can tell you that the CM10.1 nightlies are extremely stable on the N4. Everything works and it works beautifully.

I just didn't know how much of a difference from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2 there was. Or if anything would break with flashing the new nightly. Since then I have done it along with the recent gapps I found. Works just fine. Esp with rolling back my baseband to .33 :)

I can agree that everything is working beautifully. Also agree that we do need a Nexus 4 sub-section under the Google section, that would be amazing.

I took the advice and installed TWRP recovery using the goo.im app.

After installing the recovery I searched for an update to my ROM, found one, and tried to download it through the goo.im app. But it didn't work, the notification I got from the app says "Invalid MD5 sum"

Where could I go from here? I can't think of anything.

Skip using the goo.im app to update. Switch to CyanDelta. I love it!

Ok, I tried Cyan Delta. However when I select one of the CM update zips, the Feb 15th one specifically, I get aessage saying that it is not a valid zip file. Should I try installing one of the newer updates? Or would I most likely run into this same problem at this point?
