[Q] help symlink status 7 error on rom install

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – Very weird issue... Was running the paranoidandroid 2.17 rom beautifully. havent had an issue flashing any roms until now. Anyhow, tried to flash the 2.18 update, and yes i did full wipe, cache, dalvik, i get this error about symlinks failing. status 7 install aborted. I tried searching the forums for an answer to no avail. Now im able to reinstall the 2.17 rom fine. and since both are jelly bean variants of cm10 im just a little baffled. I did try to flash over the cm10 nightly after that failed and got the same symlink fail status 7 error. Any thought? Should I be on the latest band before (HowTos)
