I'll be answering my question.. I downloaded this USBDView and I deleted all COM ports that are open. I also did removing my usb controllers on my Device Manager. I restarted my computer to reload all the drivers; then opening the flasher generates a new COM port, clicking the upgrade and it worked.

I had the same problem with my S4. Whenever the phone goes off and I try to turn it back on the annoying 'Warning' Custom os comes on and I couldn't turn my phone on. I read a few articles and discovered that it has to do with your volume button. I dropped my phone a few days ago and read that if the volume button is stuck that this happens. So I went to ...

It is worth an attempt to try it. However you will risk the chance of bricking the device. Most of the time roms are created for specific phones because they have specific radios that work with the carrier. Among other aspects. It would be very important to know exactly what phone you had and what ROM you intended to use.

Use 7-Zip to unzip and repackage as .tar file (the same way as you'd zip files)

There are many options for custom ROMS, even for "older" phones such as the S3. Personally I would recommend Paranoid Android ROM as it's very "Googley". I run it on my HTC One X and it's very good. You can get started with that by looking on the XDA community for that device. Unfortunately, you will have to wipe your apps and data, but if you are rooted ...

The problem was, that I had the m7att version of CWM installed. Must have misclicked when downloading. Updated CWM to the generic m7 version and rom flashing works again.

To answer your first question, yes. May I recommend ParanoidAndroid GApps for a reliable source of current GApps. To your second question: make sure you do a wipe BEFORE you install your system rom and gapps. Sidenote, its quite possible there are outstanding bugs in your rom. For this reason I highly recommend following guides on Xda Developers

It sounds like your bootloader is locked, which is different from rooting. With a locked bootloader, you can only flash official signed factory images; with it unlocked, you can flash anything to any partition. If you're following Google's directions for installing factory images, you'll see that one of the steps is to run a fastboot oem unlock command. ...

I think in the USA it should not void your warranty as it is regulated by law and the manufacturer must prove you actively damaged your phone in the the process (which would be at least funny if you are putting a Google Android Image on a Nexus phone and following the steps Google itself published, for example). The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act states on ...

Yes you need to unlock the bootloader to flash the factory image. Yes it will void your warranty but you can lock your bootloader again and reset the tamper flag to get the warranty back No unlocking bootloader is not rooting. Here is the useful link. Unlocking bootloader Flashing factory image
