I assume at least half of Android users get Error status 6 while flashing ROMs. This can be explained in 2 reasons.

Number 1 :The developer of the ROM was too stupid to fix this mistake
Number 2 : You are tying to port a ROM and those errors come to you

So lets start fixing.

1.Extract the ROM. Open META-INF com google android and open with Notepad++updater-scipt.
2.Find the line called mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/some kind of Letters and Numbers ", "/system");
This command is telling the device to mount the system from a path. Each device has a different path.
The path is those some kind of letters and numbers up bellow.
Those numbers and letters are different for every device.
So maybe the letters are not correct and it can't find the path to mount the data.
3.What we need to do is change the path. For the path that is for your device.
Easiest way to do this is to find a ROM meant and tested for your device, open updater-script, got to the same line and replace the path.
Example change mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p25", "/system"); to mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p22", "/system");

4.You may also find these two lines
format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/some kind of letters and numbers", "0", "/system");
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/some kind of letters and numbers", "/system");
The first line is telling the device to format the data.
The second line is telling the device to mount the data
The error is similar to the error up.
You need to change the path for the data
But the path for the data is different for the path for the system
So go to the same path on the ROM for your device and change the code
But remember the codes for the data and for the system are not the same.
Example Change format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p29", "0", "/system"); and
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p29", "/system"); to format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p20", "0", "/system");
mount("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p20", "/system");
And the errors should be fixed.
