    So none of the CM14 files works for me, this guide says 14, but he downloads are 14.1(dunno if it matters). I tried the nightly 14.1 and both of those linked here. Every CM14 package gives error 7: “can’t install this package on top of incompatible data. Please try another package or run factory reset” even though the system is wiped clean(so what data exactly??). If anyone can help that’d be amazing!

    Edit: So after thinking some more and looking at the guide. I didn’t actually selectto wipe the “Data”. So when I did I could install the 14.1 Nightly one.
