I am trying to install CyanogenMod in my N7000 issue is the file I am downloading cm-10.1.3-n7000.zip from here seems to be corrupted as when I try to install it from sdcard through install zip from sdcard. it gives me similar unable to read error. cant open cm-10.1.3-n7000.zip (bad)

Plus I also tried extracting it manually on my PC same happens and the zip seems to be corrected I have tried downloading couple of time using download managers but still no changes.

Is there any other link/server from where I can get the latest ROM for my phone or any other ways to solve the issues?

  • This could easily be a permission issue. Does the md5 check correctly? You can download an md5 checker and compare it to that string of numbers on the cyanogen site. If your download is good the numbers will match. Edit: Which recovery are you using? – underscorenorm Oct 18 '13 at 12:17
  • I am following (this) tutorial [wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_n7000] so i am probably using Heimdall recovery. – Maven Oct 18 '13 at 12:25

    Is the ROM on your external or internal storage? Sounds like it needs to be on the root of your internal. I've had this issue before with CWM, and just had to move the ROM. Hopefully it's that simple. – underscorenorm Oct 18 '13 at 12:29
  • i copied it through adb push cm-10.1.3-n7000.zip /sdcard/ this commands, i think thats the root? – Maven Oct 18 '13 at 12:31
  • Can you mount the USB storage? If you can get to it with your PC, try moving the ROM to your internal storage and trying again. – underscorenorm Oct 18 '13 at 12:42

Head over to http://get.cm/?device=n7000 and note the MD5sum of the download (take care that build name / date match, of course).

You can then check it on your phone against what was downloaded using FileSums together with any File Explorer app (filesums acts as possible target for the "send to" share button when you long press the .zip file). Open the file explorer, navigate to

/storage/emulated/legacy/cmupdater/

and then long press the file you want to calculate the MD5sum to "send it to" filesums.

Or you can download it from your phone using your computer (via MTP or a SD card reader in case your phone has a removable one). Then check the file's MD5sum locally using the commandline tool md5sum (on Linux) or any Windows MD5sum utility (looks like http://www.md5summer.org has a decent one, or just google it).
