    When you download the zip file does your mac automatically unzip the file? Safari is set to unzip files by default. If so here's the fix:

    Open Safari
    Click Safari (next to the apple icon in the upper right corner)
    Preferences
    General Tab
    At the very bottom of the general tab UNCHECK "Open safe files automatically"
    Once you uncheck that, redownload the zip, put it on the sd card and then reflash.
