I think its cuz you need a custom recovery. TWRP or CWM. Download goomanager from the play store and install twrp from the app.

You need TWRP v2.5.0, friend.

I ran into this situation myself. It's fixable, but you have to be familiar with fastboot commands.

If you're not, look into it and then follow the link below.

Follow the instructions under Download - Recovery Image Method.

I did this myself last night after hours of frustration. I am currently back to Stock 4.4.2 Rooted with TWRP recovery.

That all being said, I cannot get this rom to install through TWRP. It's not my first round with rooting or flashing custom roms. The post above said that they had to us ClockWork Recovery. Are there known issues flashing from TWRP that I missed?

Thank you all, I'm looking forward to getting this rom running for my fixed install.

EDIT: I switched to CWM and flashed the ROM no issues at all. Booting now after install.

Do I need to quote myself?

Newer versions of TWRP didn't work good for me as well, but, v2.5.0.0 works!! Use that version.

I'm sorry if you feel like every problem only has one solution. I stated what worked for me, as did you. Bravo for us both. The end result is in helping the OP if I'm not mistaken and the more options they have available, the better off they are IMO.

I'm sorry if you feel like not being clear about your preference, when it comes to custom recovery and if I missunderstood you for being unsure how to get TWRP working.

You asked about TWRP issues - I said that ony newer versions have those. Sorry if that didn't sound helpful at all, for you.

The main goal is, of course to help the OP, so let's stick to that.
