    Default Can't get any version of Kit Kat to flash to my Boost Mobile S3.

    Hello, everyone. I have a S3 L710 (Boost Mobile) that is currently running 4.3 stock/root and I want to update to CM11 Kit Kat. I currently have philz touch 6.07.9 d2spr recovery manager and have made a nandroid backup.

    When I try and flash any version of 4.4 (I've tried various nightly builds and Bean Stalk) it just gives me a status 7 error. When I remove the asserts I just get install aborted. Here is a log of my most recent attempt: __bionic_open_tzdata: couldn't find any tzdata when looking for localtime! __bi - Pastebin.com

    Here is my about device information:

    Model Number: SPH-L710
    Android Version: 4.3
    Baseband Version: L71j0vpubmk5
    Kernel Version (Line 1): 3.031
    Build Number: JSS15J.L710Vpubmk5
    SE for android status: permissive
    Hardware version: l710.14

    Any ideas? Do I have an incompatable bootloader or something? If so, how do I upgrade that?

    It might be that you recovery is out of date.

    If you click on my device on the list it takes me to my current version: [d2spr][CWM ADV.] OFFICIAL PhilZ-Touch Recovery 6.0 [11.24.13] - xda-developers

    That means I have the most up to date supported version, right?

    Beanstalk: [ROM][CWM-Recovery][KitKat][4.4+][UNOFFICIAL][BeanStalk-4.4.+][d2spr] - xda-developers

    Cyanogenmod 11 (20140116 and 20140104): CyanogenMod Downloads

    Cyanogenmod 10.2.0-d2spr: CyanogenMod Downloads

    All of them produce the same errors that are specified in my OP.


    EDIT: I did just get MOAR 7.1.0 to flash to my phone successfully, though: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2572102
    So at least I'm on 4.3 now..
