    Apologies if this has already been answered, but i did a quick search on androidcentral and xda and couldnt find anything helpful.

    Basically back around the 1st November, PA posted and AOSP 4.4 KitKat Rom, which i successfully flashed using MultiRom TWRP with MultiRom Boot IMG.

    However after that my TWRP would switch back to the non MultiRom version i had and i couldnt access any of my Backups.

    When trying to install any other custom roms TWRP would return the a error like below:

    Failed: "Error executing updater binary in zip"

    Initially i thought this was just the 4.4_rom.zip I downloaded, but it happened with all 4.4 roms i attempted to flash.

    As a result i decided to return to stock JWR66Y 4.3.
    The method i used was performing this all through fastboot - wipe, flash boot, flash recovery, flash data, flash system etc.....

    After that i flashed twrp 2.6.3.3 through fastboot and then flashed SU1.44 to gain root access.

    I then tried once again to flash a 4.4 rom and TWRP is still returning the same error.

    Sorry if this is trivial.... Am i being stupid, have i missed something like updating the bootloader or similar??

    Many Thanks for any assistance. Owen

    Hey Owen,

    There are many possible reasons, one is that you don't have the mako version of 4.4, which is extremely unlikely.
    Try updating TWRP to the latest version.

    Is 2.6.3.3 not the latest verison of TWRP? and

    The Custom Roms i have attempted to flash are definately all Mako (i checked this in the updater-script).

    Try using CWM. Peeps seem to be having a much better success rate flashing 4.4 with it.

    Great to hear! Strange to hear that TWRP was causing the problem...
