CyanogenMod

Error when flashing Samsung Note 2 with CyanogenMod?

When trying to flash your phone with CyanogenMod are you facing this error :

Error executing updater binary in zip (path to zip)

I got this error when trying to flash my Samsung Note 2 n7100 with Cyano 11. Was trying this on TWRP 2.6 recovery tool. I wasn’t able to flash successfully neither was able to get out of the bootloop.

It was some issue with TWRP, as it was not able to execute the binaries in the downloaded image.

If you receive this error, try flashing using ClockworkMod recovery tool. Using Odin, you can flash in ClockworkMod to your device, just like how you did it for TWRP.

Once your phone is connected via USB, run Odin as administrator and select the PDA archive and give the path to CWM file which you have downloaded.

Find this link useful to download CWM for note 2 :

http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/GalaxyNote2/CWM/Note2-CWM-6.0.4.3-GT-N7100.tar

Once the archive is selected click on start and wait till the installation is complete. Now you will be able to boot into CWM recovery instead of TWRP and you can flash CyanogenMod without any issues.

      Try disabling the service from terminal :

      ===========
      # su
      # pm disable com.android.cellbroadcasterreceiver

      ===========

          Ok, then give in the following in terminal, which will alter the binary of the service :

          ===================

          # su
          # mount -rw -o remount /system
          # cd /system/app
          # mv CellBroadcastReceiver.apk CellBroadcastReceiver.apk.disabled
          # reboot

          ===================
