I bought a rooted gs3 on EBAY...

It is running liquidsmooth rom.. I have tried flashing some other VZW roms (esp. want to try out kit-kat roms) and I get an error during the flashing process..

See attached image...

Did I get taken on Ebay??? Not sure what I am doing wrong...

Thanks in advance for any help

I just reloaded and the image is showing now, but here is what concerns me about the error msg:

"This package is for "d2vzw" devices: This is a "d2spr".

I was sold a verizon SCH-I535..

The sticker under the battery says it's a SCH-I535

so i am a little confused by the error msg during the flashing process

That's a Sprint S3 and you're trying to flash a Verizon ROM to it. That's the problem lol.

You are mistaken. Your recovery stated "This package is for 'd2vzw' devices; this is a 'd2spr'". Your phone is Sprint, my friend...

Go to Settings, About Phone, and look at the model number.

Either it's your build.prop OR its the recovery cuz that's an outdated CWM. You'll need to update it to at least CWM 6.0.4.x to flash any KitKat rom. Just triple check that you see SCH-I535 d2vzw in the build.prop (which is in /System) before going further. I find it hard to believe the seller perfectly replaced the sticker behind the battery.

That is weird. It could be the build.prop or out dated cwm. What version of CWM are you running?

The cwm recovery is too outdated needs to be the latest to flash 4.4 ... But yes odd statement by the recovery failure

Could be mistaken, but that looks like a knockoff s3 to me.

edit: Sticker looks wrong (no samsung logo), just doesn't look right and it's not making sense why it's acting like that. If you bought the phone for cheap on Ebay then it makes sense for it to be a fake. Fake one looks very similar to the real thing.
