    Hi, I'm trying to flash a zip file on my xiaomi MI2 through CWM (6.0.5.0), but it keeps saying that it cannot open the file and aborts the installation -- (bad)

    I have downloaded the file multiple times on multiple devices and can open it normally;
    I've moved it from one folder to the other;
    I've tried to sideload it;
    I've rebooted from recovery to recovery and flashed again;
    I've explicitly stated that it shouldn't verify the file (i know it's alright);
    I've used Google to try to find an answer, yet failed;
    I've tried eventing I can think of, but I keep getting the same error...

    Do YOU have any advice, please share :) and thank you

    Did you try with TWRP recovery? But pay attention because dual boot IS NOT supported! It flashes always on system 1! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=57252389

    which file are you trying to flash?
    and, as @MSephiroth says, why don't you try managing with another custom recovery? :)

    Well that was embarrassing (for the author of the zip), it seems that he'd uploaded a new version of the zip file, which works just fine, as usual -- thanks for the help though!!!

    @zipalign - the file is a Chinese version of MIUI6, which I find rather stable

    @MSephiroth - thanks for the suggestion, maybe next time though ;)

    glad you solved with new .zip!
    there are official channels to get chinese MIUI version though.. their flashable .zip's are 100% tested and secure ;)
