I took the CyanogenMod for my device (Galaxy A5 aka A500FU) from this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/samsung-a-series/development/dev-help-to-create-cm12-rom-galaxy-a5-t3153129I took the zip file and put it on my sd card, opened up TWRP and wiped all (of course I made backups) and flashed it. But there was the error: error executing updater binary in zip

I tried in Odin, but there comes an "unexpected" error. Of course I've also tried to put the zip in a tar file, but it still does not work at all...

What am I doing wrong? Thank you

    Best place for getting help with this issue you've already linked to: The XDA thread you got that ROM from. There you find people using it, and with some luck even the one creating the ROM might be active there – who is the one who should know best.

  • @krmax44 I don't know about "this shitty point system of xda", was just giving a pointer. Do you mean you cannot post a reply on that thread due to missing rep? I don't remember such a restriction. Whatever it might be: I was just giving a pointer – that doesn't make your question here invalid. So good luck with it!

  • Just fixed it, the TWRP was broken... Wasted about two days...

I fixed it earlier, but for all others: I downloaded TWRP from another developer, now it works flawlessly.

  • Can you link the source from where you downloaded that another TWRP?

  • Answers like "I did it", "I fixed it" does not help the future visitors. Please provide the actual solution on how you did it.
