ok so im having problem trying to flash C-rom series. How do i flash this rom?
There are two parts that we are suppose to download, the zip file and md5 file.
how do i go ahead and flash this?
i went to recovery mode and tried to install the zip file but didnt work, it said md5 file is missing.
are we suppose to merge those files together first? and create new zip file and then flash it?

Ive seen a lot of roms not include an md5sum. But usually they will still flash. Check the settings in recovery to make sure its not requiring it. The md5 isnt an extra file, its a value based on a hash of the file itself which is them embedded into the files properties if im not mistaken. Its done to ensure file/download integrity. Anyway, you should be able to turn it off somewhere in recovery.
