Connect your phone via usb to your comp Go into twrp mount your storage and drag the Rom over to the phone where you'll be able to find it on your sd
Now go into the wipe menu in twrp select wipe system and factory reset..
Nowclicj on install in twrp find viper where you put in on your sd and click on and flash it
You now have a custom Rom/root/ fixed phone
He should pay you 20.00 for this advice. You just fixed his phone indirectly

You don't have to uncompress the ROMS you download. Leave them as is once you have the files on the computer. Copy them over to your phone as is using TWRP Mount option then you're good to go

The issue wasn't his phone, it was his PC. It would try and decompress any ,zip he tried to download automatically when only 20-30% downloaded. I pushed viper ROM over to his PC from mine using TV and he flashed it. He's up n running
