Ive tried to flash three seperate ROM's using the fake flash method but when I select the zip from my sd card I get the following:

Opening update package.....
E: cant open /sdcard/*ROM NAME*
(bad)
Installation aborted

Why is this happening?


Any help would be greatly received

Maybe your ROM is corrupted. Try downloading it again just for make shure.

And if fake-flash doesn't work you can try AMDesireRecovery if you have a computer nearby... old methods work better sometimes

Its been the same for 3 different ROM downloads so the chances of all three being corrupt are slim

I'm going to try using a different SD card and then i'll try and different recovery method
