Default Trying to install Echoe. E: Can't open. Installation aborted.

Hi, I'm very new to all this palava so any help whatsoever is appreciated.

Thus far, I've followed this video on YouTube about rooting my phone and installing CWM (youtube.com/watch?v=hUghV16l9d8). I've downloaded the latest Echoe file for my Note 3 (N9005) and dragged it to my external SD card. However, when I boot into recovery mode and choose zip from external card then press on "N3_Echoev13" it just comes up with "Finding update package... Opening update package... E:Can't open /storage/extSdCard/N3_Echoev13_22April2014.zip (bad) Installation aborted."

I realise this is most likely a complete noob error and I should be able to sort it but I'm tired and I just thought some kind folk over on this board would be happy to help me out.

Thanks.

Bad download ? Is there a md5 number provided on the rom thread ? I'm sure it is. Did you check it ?

When u download echoe, there's a md5 hash number.
Download md5 checker, browse the zip file, and check whether the checker result is the same with the one provided at echoe download page.

Downloaded md5 checker on my phone and it comes up with "d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e" yet on the Echo download page below the two links the md5 is "6A2B349A8602C1E75D951145F152C7AA".

I've re downloaded the ROM this morning again to see if that altered the md5 but nothing. Any light to shed guys?

I don't think the md5 provided on the site is wrong (or I might be wrong). Did you check a few last thread posts, if someone else is having such issues ?
There's really nothing else to do but to download it till the md5 matches.
And next time, always check the md5. The roms are big in size, so they can easily get corrupted during downloading.

P.S. I can't belive im spoon feeding you with such information. Must be something I smoked yesterday. :sly:
