I'm not going to say you're wrong, but my experience has been different to yours. I have no Boot Error 3, my recovery never gets overwritten, and Google Play Store works perfectly.Hi Guys I think everyone is getting confused the real reason why google playstore works for some is that you HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR BOOTLOADER UNLOCKED.
It doesn't matter what rom you use or what method there is only one thing you must NOT do is run the OEM LOCK command after you have unlocked it. You have to live with the BOOT ERROR 3 message forever and simply bypassing it by pushing the volume up.
Thanks. Now I have error 963 too
Thanks, this really solved the problem for me as well.I have an observation that might be useful: I installed the Chinese 18.104.22.168(LACCNDE) stable version, and I wanted to format my data partition. After installing TWRP I went to the "Wipe" / "Advanced Wipe" menu, selected Data, and swiped to wipe - but it came up with an error about Data being "auto" type. So I went to the "Repair or Change File System" page and pressed "Ext4" which I thought would reformat the partition, but it seemed to leave some files behind.
So I changed the partition to Ext3 and then back to Ext4, and it seemed to do a proper format.
And now my 963 errors are gone! I didn't follow the instructions in this thread, but it does seem that the methods that work, do it by giving the Data partition a different format.
Correct, no need to change / reinstall rom from 7.5.2.
