Unhappy [Q] can't open sdcard update.zip bad Install aborted

I have a HTC Desire GSM, I have follwed Linkslovesandroids guide for Noobs on how to root the device all the way through to adding a custom ROM with no problems however when I try a new ROM I get the above error. I have tried various ROM's I have renamed the file to update.zip, checking that windows has not named it as update.zip.zip. I have recreated the partition on the SDCARD using gparted all other stps in the guide were successful I cannot see what I am doing wrong, I am a noob so obviously doing something wrong, can anybody help please? This was an excellent guide form Linkslovesandroid but it is frustrating being so close and not able to load a custom ROM, my ophone is back to factory defaults very uncool.

Hi Guys.. I have a Dell Streak 5 ... and I have the same issue...

I have not been able to install the new 1.9.1 rom =(

I have tried everything that I know... but it did not work.

I created the install.txt file, and I downloaded (in different ways) the update-1.9.1.zip file. I use StreakDroid and I face the error:

-- Installing: SDCARD:update.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
E:Can't open /sdcard/update.zip
(bad)
Installation Aborted.


Any help is welcome !!!! Thank you guys =)

Delete the ROM in your PC then redownload again, rename to update.zip and put it in your phone's SD Card.

Is your phone rooted? if so, disable signature verification in recovery. Also are you trying to upgrade to Gingerbread?

try manually directing the phone to the file (by using install zip from sdcard instead of apply update from sdcard)

hi...
I have the same problem, but I'm trying to back from ICS to GB...

I've also tried installing another ICS but the same problem... What happens also when I try to restore my backups, it also gives me error that goes like 'MD5 mismatch'...

Does anyone knows what might be the problem..?

thanks
