    Try placing the ROM in a folder.

    Some instructions for installing custom ZIPs (I believe it might actually point to a specific location on the phone)

    Here is an example - Help & Support

    For you to install that custom rom, you need to make sure you put the ZIP here-

    /xrecovery/backup/Blue_Sparks/

    It won't work if it is here -

    /xrecovery/backup/Blue_Sparks/bluesparks051.OTAREADY/
    /xrecovery/backup/Blue Sparks/

    Since the img is built into the ZIP some of them need to be in real specific places....and can't have any spaces in the filenames.

    Why not simplify the process and instead of having to have so many button presses to get to the files (if your advice was taken), why not just make a folder called "Roms" or "Zips" or "Custom" or "whateveryouwant" and place the files in there? That way when xRec comes up and you select "install custom zip", you only have to navigate down to said folder, then select the file, no need to do it the long way and find the file that's in a folder that's in another folder.

    Personally, my folder is called "Gingerbread" and when xRec is asking me to navigate to the zip I want to flash, it's the second folder listed on the tree. Can't get much easier than that.
