    Did you OPEN the zip file or try to flash it in recovery?

    RELATED ISSUE!!--

    I'm running an EVO that I rooted using unrevoked. After using CM6 for a while (and frankly getting tired of all the bugs) I found a mirror on XDA that put me back to the stock image (while somehow keeping root, yay). Now I'm tired of stock again.

    I've tried to install baked snacks 1.9 AND 1.8. Each time I get the same error:

    Could not install sd/blahblah
    (bad)

    My process is:

    Download file from Baked Snacks website to root of SD
    Boot into recovery
    Attempt to Flash
    *Rageguy*
    Used NAND to restore to my previous image
    Try again

    Yes, I'm sure I have root
    Yes, I've tried downloading the rom several different times
    Yes, I wipe data/cache each time
    I even tried renaming the file from: bakedsnack1.9.evo.zip to bakedsnack1_9_evo.zip

    no luck

    Any ideas?

    *********UPDATE********** Rom is currently installing. WOOT! The fix was making sure the Download didn't time out (i was downloading it from the site directly to the evo) and NOT touching it in any way before flashing. Hope it continues to work!
