    Ok i'm kinda new to the scene, and i'm having lots of problems installing leaked ics into my phone... here's what i have

    • system version 5.9.905.xt875.verizon.en.us
      android version 2.3.4
      the phone is rooted
      i've installed rom manager
      safestrap 1.07
      bionic bootstrapper

    i've rebooted into recovery using safestrap, enabled safe mode, then cleaned cache, wiped data factory reset, dalvik...

    the rom i'm trying to install is the ics leak for droid bionic.I've placed it in the dowload folder in internal sd card and in the root of external sd card. it keeps saying "e:can't open /sdcard/bionic.ics.zip, (bad) installation aborted, and if i use the internal hard drive, it says the same thing... I've downloaded the ics leak many times from different sources and no rom is installing.... I've downloaded a couple of bionic roms and i get the same errors no matter what rom....any suggestions on how to solve this problem? please help.
    thanks

    use the House of Bionic to install the leak, best and safest way of doing it.

    First let me worn you once you install a leak beyond 6.7.232 there is no going back to 5.9.905

    You have to flash the ICS leaks in stock recovery. Power off your phone-hold both volume rockers(up and down) and power button at the same time. Toggle down to recovery and then toggle up to select. Make sure the leak you want to flash is on SD Card-Ext.

    followed the house of bionic instructions and always get a msg saying

    " Please check input file. Either xml format is wrong or image files associated with it are missing... I've rebooted both the pc and the phone several times and still get the msg when using hob method... I then just tried using rsd lite 5.7 to install bionic ics leak and still same msg. I had safestrap and removed it before started doing all of this. The only thing i have is bootstrap installed.

    Does any one know what the error msg means?"

    Usually a corrupt installation of HoB. Fully uninstall it, redownload all of the components, reboot the PC, reinstall all of the HoB components in order, and try again.

    You're trying to install it without even being clear on what it does? Read the thread, plus the FAQ thread. Until then, don't even THINK of installing it.

    Sorry you could not get it installed. You are probably better off waiting anyway. Hopefully we won't have to wait too much longer.
