Default [Q] Rooted - Update firmware and ROM?

I'm rooted, on stock, with a custom ROM installed. I'm trying to update to the latest software, and found a thread with the new stock ROM, rooted, and an altered firmware update, with hboot, boot, and recovery removed:

My plan was: update firmware in fastboot, then flash the ROM in recovery (I'm assuming only cache wipe is needed, since it's stock).

I tried to start by updating the firmware, using the instructions in the thread, but am getting the error message:
writing 'zip'...
(bootloader) zip header checking...
(bootloader) zip info parsing...
(bootloader) Read zipped android_info fail
FAILED (remote: 24 parsing android-info fail)
finished. total time: 2.751s

I can't figure out how to get past this, and the thread is locked, so I can't ask there. Any help in updating ROM/firmware would be greatly appreciated.

Edit... is it because I'm S-On?
