copying cyanogenmod zip to android phone error

August 14, 2015

error while copying a cyanogenmod zip image to an android phone’s internal memory using windows 7 and got the error ‘cannot copy item the device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected’.

the solution? give the zips an alternative extension. so i renamed ‘cm-12.1-20150808-NIGHTLY-z3.zip’ to ‘cm-12.1-20150808-NIGHTLY-z3.zip.jpg’. transfer went fine. now you just have to rename again and lose the ‘.jpg’ extension. quite why this happens with android 5 i don’t know. never had it with any of the previous versions.
