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

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 ;)
