I'm running off the Vanir ROM at the moment, but due to the lack of camera wanted to flash it back to something more full-featured.

The problem is, any ROM i've tried (Carbon, RODT, Shohat etc.) comes up as being an invalid zip file.

I've tried both TWRP and Philz recoveries, and re-downloaded the ROM's multiple times.

Why would every zip I try to flash from be invalid?

Using the spring variant G900P.

you might want to flash back to stock via ODIN and re-root

Are you using an external sdcard? If yes drop the ROM in the internal one, and try.

Installing from the internal storage seemed to do the trick - re-flashing to stock did not help.

Thank you!
