    I'm currently on build 28 AOKP. Trying to go to build 31. I've done all the steps... full back up, wipe, install from zip... and I get an error msg. Do I have to remove 28 from the root file or is it something else?

    Thanks

    Most likely didn't download completely. Try downloading it again

    Sent from my ICS flavored DROID4

    OK I re-downloaded it, kept a close eye and made sure the download finished properly.
    Removed the old zip file from root directory and saved the new one.
    I turned off the phone, went into recovery mode, did the wipe/factory reset, install zip from SD card and get this error

    -- Installing:/sdcard/aokp_maguro_build-31.zip
    Finding update package
    Opening update package
    Installing update...
    Assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "maguro"
    E :Error in /sdcard/aokp_maguro_build-31.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted

    Any idea?

    Thanks guys

    I can't figure this out lol

    Any ideas at all?

    Do I have to be connected to a computer while flashing?
    Do I have to remove the old rom from the root file before flashing the new one?

    Which carrier are you on with your Nexus?

    I have moved this to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus All Things Root section.

    OP
    you might want to check the md5 on the newest aokp build, and verify it matches.

    the fact your getting an installation aborted means that its an incomplete download

    and if your a verizon galaxy nexus, you need "toro" not maguro.

    Toro is the CDMA LTE version
    Maguro is the GSM version

    What I was driving at. Toro for Verizon. Maguro for all others.

    that leaves me to believe it is saying, "hey wrong device, i will not install, download the right one!"

    but thats just me

    ok, then something is an issue with your download, how are you downloading the file? and have you tried different mirrors?

    Check your md5 as well.

    I've tried every mirror. I even tried the download for the LTE version. Oddly enough I was able to flash that version no problem but I guess because Im HSDPA:9 and not LTE it wouldn't read my sim and I had zero network connection. It flashed perfectly,i even flashed a theme too and everything was great except no service

    Any more ideas what the hell is going on here? I'm currently using maguro aokp 28. I can't flash any maguro roms but I can flash toro roms but it won't connect to my network so no signal. Anyone ever heard of this? I've spent the better part of the day ripping my hair out over this.

    Please somebody help me

    Man, I don't know what to tell you. Try sending Roman a PM over on Rootzwiki.com He's the ROM developer and might could help you. Otherwise, try flashing a different maguro ROM.

    On top of the rom issue... I was messing around with all sorts of shit with a file explorer app. Stuff I know nothing about and somehow got in even deeper when suddenly I had no network connection, it was like the phone didn't have a sim card.

    Long story short... only after reaching the end of the internet I figured it all out. I'm currently on liquidsmooth v1.25, grabbed a wicked theme and my phone is operating fukin amazing.

    Thanks for all the replys guys. Much appreciated!

    Cheers

    I have to same issues with the Gummy ROM. I've downloaded 0.9 as I'm on 0.8 and I'm getting the same sort of error message. Now I've wiped everything and downloaded the file again but still the message appears. Lucky I backed up my ROM. I'm going to wait for the 4.0.4 ICS rom to come out
