I tried to flash the ROM for Lineage 16 to my Samsung Note 2 N7100 (t03g) with TWRP custom bootloader, but there was an error which was:
Installing zip file '/sdcard/lineage-16-20200104-UNOFFICIAL-n7100.zip' Checking for Digest file... Unmounting System... Warning: No file_contexts Target: samsung/t03gxx/t03g:4.3/JSS15J/N71000XXUEMK4:user/release-keys detected filesystem ext4 for /dev/block/mmcblk0p13 Patching system image unconditionally... mkdir "/cache/recovery/8833b259bb088b2e13f62771d46006a40f54bc20/" failed: No such file or directory E1001: Failed to update system image. Updater process ended with ERROR: 7 Error installing zip file '/sdcard/lineage-16-20200104-UNOFFICIAL-n7100.zip' Updating partition details... ...done
What I've tried to solve the problem were:
- unzipping and rezipping the file
- deleting the assert lines in /META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script
- rezipping after deleting asserts
They still failed to fix the error. In between attempts I've wiped the cache, Dalvik, system, data as normal. Since ERROR: 7 is a very general problem, I think the problem is on line
mkdir "/cache/recovery/8833b259bb088b2e13f62771d46006a40f54bc20/" failed: No such file or directory but for the life of me can't figure out what it means. I'm certain that mkdir is supposed to create a new directory from scratch, so I find the "No such file or directory" very odd.
I'm using Comico Team's custom ROM and TWRP version 3.4.0. At first I did want to ask over there but the creators seemed to be unresponsive. So, anyone here know how to fix this?
