    I'm trying to install a Custom ROM to my Z00D, and found some Temporary Recoveries to do so, but both CWM and TWRP get stuck on the line
    Code:
    detected filesystem ext4 for /dev/block/by-name/system
    
    forever. Neither of them continue at all. They don't stop the flashing, or anything, they just get stuck, and I have no idea what to do.

    There's a second problem I have, it's less important for me right now than the upper one, but I'll write it down anyway.
    So, on the same page the download for the Custom ROM is, there's an actual, non-temporary Recovery Image. I tried installing that through Fastboot, and it did install successfully. The problem is, I can't boot into it. Whenever I try to do so, it hangs on a black screen for a few seconds, then the phone reboots completely! ...what?! :wtf:

    Anyway, these are the two problems I have. As I previously said, the upper one is more important to me, because even if I don't get the actual Recovery working, I still have the two Temporary ones, that I have the problem with.

    Sounds like a kernel mismatch

    The correct what? Custom ROM? That's the only Custom ROM for my device that exists yet, and I was linked to the download from another forum, and they even had a screenshot.
    The screenshot

    Dude, I don't know. I don't know your phone. You cheaped out and there isn't a lot of support, its either kernel mismatch or your phone isn't rooted and it can't rewrite the partition
