    Hi all, I just got my Nexus 4 & Im trying to install CM10.1 on it.

    I rooted it using this guide: http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...lock-root.html
    After that I did this exactly:

    1. Downloaded CM10.1 & Gapps from here: [ROM][Official][4.2.1] CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightlies for the Nexus 4 (mako) - xda-developers
    2. Copied both to the /sdcard directory
    (3. Downloaded ROM Manager when doing the CWM Method)
    3. Downloaded TWRP Recovery (Or CWM Recovery CWM didnt work so I tried with TWRP)
    4. Booted with TWRP (Or CWM) through fastboot: fastboot boot recovery.img
    5. Wiped Cache + Dalvik Cache + Factory Reset
    6. Loaded .zip file (CM10.1)

    When it starts both TWRP & CWM say
    set_perm: some changes failed
    E: Error in /sdcard/cm-10.1-20121227-NIGHTLY-mako.zip
    (Status 7)
    A quick search told me that the "Status 7"error means that the ROM is not compatible with my phone, But I have a Nexus 4 so it should work?
    Havent seen anybody else with this problem so Im posting it her, Hopefully you guys can help out?

    PS: USB Debugging was on, I tried wiping ALL the data & Pushing the CM10.1 through ADB.
    I installed CM10 on an LG p506 Thrive some weeks ago, That worked.
    I bought the phone 2nd hand when it had CM10.1 installed already, Then I returned to stock using this: [HOW-TO] How to flash a factory image / return to stock / unlock / root # - xda-developers
    Everything worked but I decided to install CM10.1 again (Liked it more) but I keep getting that error. Reinstalling Stock JB always works fine.

    Typically Status 7 error would be from either an outdated recovery or bad ROM download. Since your recovery is up to date based on the info, I'd try downloading the ROM again and check the md5. If it still fails try flashing another ROM such as AOKP (my preference anyway) at least to see if that works and we can narrow it down to being a problem with CM.

    Doesn't CM automatically root your device when installing?

    Just install Rom Manager and install recovery from there.
