Default [Q] Bad Rootedupdate? <Solved>

Hi all,

I've been trying to root my legend again (had to unroot it after the first time because I got stuck in a boot loop..)

But now I get stuck at the last step; flashing rootedupdate.zip

Let me first say that everything upto running step2-windows.bat went well, except for step2-windows.bat being unable to write rootedupdate.zip to my sdcard (I/O error).

So I manually copied it to the sd-card to be able to flash it.
However, it now gives me an error, saying
"E: Can't open /sdcard/rootedupdate.zip (bad)"

Does anyone recognize this or know what might cause this? I've tried different rootedupdate.zips, from different locations, but keep getting the same error.

Where to find another rooted rom then?

I've already tried different rootedupdate.zip files, since that's the rooted rom always used in guides.

I'm trying to do so now, but I now get stuck at the second step itself. It gives me the following output in my command line;

Code:
Legend Root Step 2

Pushing required files to device...

error: protocol fault (no status)
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -

Pushing update file to device sdcard - this may take a few minutes...

- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -
To give some more details;

- HBOOT 1.01
- Android 1.31 is running
- Goldcard succesfully created (even re-did this to be sure)
- Step 1 completed succesfully (as far as I can see)

Does anyone know how to solve this?

You rock!

Never thought of using fake flash for this purpose

But it worked like a charm! Thanks!
