    • LineageOS was formerly Known as CyanogenMod, I reckon you already know that and Resurrection Remix was built from the source code of CyanogenMod and is one of the many CM based ROMs. So with having all the goods that Lineage OS has, the code has been modifed and there are lot more features implemented along with few new controls with lot of customizability.

  1. CM14 and Lineage OS both were not installing with an error "E: error executing updater binary in zip" . Though I've been doing rooting and flashing for a long time. I read your blog and I was doing exactly the same.

    Here comes the main part, I saw your download link for T.W.R.P. for titan. I had 2.7 and 2.8 . Your link contains even 3.0 ... I fastbooted 3.0 and flashed linage 14.1 ... It flashed...problem was in recovery.

    • Yeah i've seen this happen with many users, they usually forget to upgrade to the latest TWRP and often get this error. In most of the cases (if not all!) this problem is just solved by updating to the latest TWRP version!
