    Why is it that when I use a update zip created with zip themer it doesn't load or work but TWRP said it was successful. I already updated Edify and checked everything. The update zip is for the lock screen. The zip is for CM7 and MDPI.

    I'm running the ThankyouHoarkCM7 with the Katokernel and S2E.

    If you don't mind posting the zip(or at least the updater script) I'll take a look at it for you and see what's going on

    Well I definitely see the problem... Here's the updater script for Rover-Lockscreen-MDPI-update.zip:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. ui_print("Executing ZipThemer update...");
    3. show_progress(0.5, 5);
    4. unmount("/system");
    5. package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
    6. set_perm(0, 0, 0644, "/system/framework/framework-res.apk");
    7. unmount("/system");
    8.  
    I'm not by the computer right now, so I'm not sure I can fix it for you at the moment... but it should be:
    Code (Text):
    1.  ui_print("Executing ZipThemer update...");
    2. show_progress(0.5, 5);
    3. mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/stl12", "/system");
    4. package_extract_dir("system", "/system");
    5. set_perm(0, 0, 0644, "/system/framework/framework-res.apk");
    6. unmount("/system");
    7.  
    Its actually set to unmount /system before it 'installs' anything *facepalm*
    Even if you had tried to mount /system manually before the install, this would unmount it.


    Edit- the updater script is located in ...update.zip/meta-inf/com/Google/android/

    Ok fixed the update script and installed, it wasn't that good. But thanks for the help when that happens again I will remember to go over everything in more detail.

    The undo one has the exact same updater script... so the problem should be the same... but if its failing, then I'm not sure... a simple way to 'undo' it is to take the framework-res.apk from the undo-zip and put it inside the update.zip that you already flashed...

    OR just restore the backup that you should have made... lol

    Just in case anyone else was looking for a way to theme CM7 ( like me.. ) Than flash this in CWM ....... http://db.tt/9Ux6mzEx ..... Then download 'theme chooser themes' from the market.

    Edit... Yeah I had to pick through several threads to find this information, I guess It wasn't posted in the OP's or nothing, I found it in a single post by LordVincent... BTW Thank you LV!!

    Same problem here, and repartitioning the card from CWM did not solve the issue. Also worth noting that FreeSpace isn't reporting there being anything on the SD card and the Ext value are null (-- MB)

    I can't really tell what is going on in the S2E boot log without timestamps, does it clear each reboot? About midway through it says "Please run e2fsck on the filesystem" but the entire log ends with:
    "/dev/blck/mmcblk0p2 successfully mounted!

    Config found on /data/data
    Status dir found! Erase..."

    Did you flash this AFTER booting up fully???..... cm7d2x.zip

    This gives you Data2Ext support.

    And KatoKernel can be found here for overclock with ext support..... katokern_b0.4_cm7-ext.zip

    Guys, it looks like S2E may have updated again because I'm having the same problem getting it to work. They did this awhile back and it wouldn't work until they updated it again.

    I'm using the data2ext version of The Kato kernel. It's crazy because S2E worked perfectly when I set it up 2 months ago. Oh well.

    Dais, I made a theme installer zip a long time ago bro. It's posted several times in this thread.

    I'm not using s2e. I'm using the built in cm tools for my ext partition. My prevail setup is:
    Hroark_CM7_beta 5
    Kato Kernel w/sd-ext support
    And using koumamod.apk to mount my swap partition. :D

    I may need to get the Koumamod apk info from you bro and how to set it up with CM7 That's a good idea for adding swap.

    Not having any problems yet. I have not seen an update for S2E in a while. Play says Oct 22. I remember having some problems when it updated but finally got it working. I don't remember what finally fixed it, but as far as I know I am at the newest version: 3.0.2

    From past experience, S2E can be finicky sometimes. I'm going to try what the Skater mentioned and add the Koumamod apk and set up some swap. I'm sure that will help a good bit.

    OK, I got S2E working FINALLY!!!! lmao

    I had to install CM7 and the Kato kernel no-ext version. I then signed into the Play store and all that. I partitioned my sd card and fixed permissions then booted the phone up. I then downloaded S2E, went into it's settings and checked everything. You will not be able to tap on anything in the 1st menu when you open S2E. You must 1st go into settings and check all the boxes. I then rebooted and let the phone sit for about 5 minutes. I then went in and opened up S2E and I was able to tap on the boxes on the 1st screen. I checked all the boxes but Application Data and Dalvik cache. I then rebooted and IT'S ALL GOOOOOOD!!!!! Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP!!??!!??

    I've never really given CM7 a try since it's never really been bug free IIRC. Are there any advantages to using this as opposed to CTMod? What are the real differences? I know there's a bit more "eye candy" or something like that, but are there any performance boosts using this?

    It gets better benchmarks. As for the ROM itself, just give it a try and see for yourself. That's gonna be the best way to choose. What works for 1 person doesn't necessarily work for the next. You got people who swear that CTMOd is better while others swear up and down CM7 is better. Try them both and decide for yourself. :)
