Strange it should detect it even if it won't properly flash. Double check:

It's named:
- "PB99IMG.zip" exactly, think it even requires all upper case.
- not "PB99IMG.zip.zip".
I don't mean to sound insulting with the second one, but I've seen it done

Hey, thanks for your reply. Unfortunately the phone doesn't detect the file, I am 100% sure. What ill do is get another sd card, maybe my one is corrupted somehow.

Okay, I have gone a bit further than last time, I have somewhat better results, changed the SD card and the image loaded.

Now I am stuck on this (Please see the attached image)

The phone does not go any further and I cannot navigate through this list if I am even supposed to be able to do that.

Can't figure this out to be honest.

When you boot into bootloader with the PB99IMG.zip image, it should do a scan, then find it.

Then it should give you the option 'do you want to flash it?' or something like that, press power to select I think. Was so long ago since I had to do this myself. Does it resemble anything like this?

@lilsafbig - dude, it has already found the file and loaded it.
@eddiehk6 - nah man, it's giving me options like on the other image after loading the file, which it never did before i tried the new sd card. Its strange, none of the physicall buttons work in this stupid HBOOT.

Did u check the MD5sum of the file? Cant really think of why it reads it then not let u choose to flash it.

Yes I did. Everything is fine with the file. I dont get it either ... I started suspecting the buttons being broken ... but it doesnt explain why the phone turns on yet cant use the power button to select any options. The volume buttons do not function at all. I get into HBOOT just by pressing the ON button and then it turns on.

I had the same problem and what i did was first flashed in fastboot mode the "alpha jelly", try to search on that because thats the requirement on flashing kitkang and i flashed another recovery using fastboot mode. What i flashed is the latest CWM and them go recovery then flashed the 4.4.2 rom. and it worked for me. it should for you too.
