    I can not install as guide (error: status 7). Why is ROM size very small (only 162 MB). I think it is 6->800MB. Pls help me to fix this error. Thank you very much and happy new year.

      Updated link with latest release. The ROM size is low because it’s custom ROM and not official firmware which contain lot of bloatware. Thanks! And happy new year.

      Do you using any ROM currently? If yes then what that is? You probably need to flash a Jelly Bean kernel before install this.

      As you running an Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean ROM, you most likely already on JB kernel. However, you can still try this ROM: However, flashing kernel is always risky. Did you tried wiping cache and dalvik cache few more times before flashing CM10.1 build?
