Unhappy [Q] ROM Installation Problem(Installation Aborted, Can't open /sdcard/rom.zip)

I don't get officially Kitkat update until now, so i trying to flash this "Fully Deodexed Stock KitKat ROM v1" by Rajeev

I was in 4.3, so i flash 4.2.2(10.3.1.A.2.67) to gain Root access. Root using DoomLord method(flash 10.3.A.0.423 kernel, gain root & again flash 10.3.1.A.2.67 kernel). Then install XZDualRecovery 2.7.1XX RC by NUT

But when i try to install ROM through PhilZ Touch or CWM recovery i get error message "Installation Aborted, Can't open /sdcard/name_of_rom.zip".

Also i tried with this CWM recovery 6.0.2.8 for locked bootloaders v4 by krabappel2548, same issue on it too.

I am not sure what is the problem, i follow every single instruction while installing CWM recovery/flashing ROM. Can anyone please help me.
<?php
$mobiles = array("Device" => "Sony Xperia Z(C6603)", "ROM" => "Stock 4.3(10.4.1.B.0.101)", "Device Status" => "LB, Rooted, Dual Recovery Installed", "Device History" => "A lot of Feature Phone >> Xperia Ray >> Xperia J >> Xperia SP >> Xperia Z(Current)");

foreach($mobiles as $mobile => $value){
echo $mobile . ": " . $value . "<br />";
}
?>

Maybe the download is corrupt? Download and try again

Instead of flashing a zip you can flash the official 4.4.2 ftf(Use flashtool to flash ftf) and root it

Hit thanks if helped
