Unzipping with WinRar comes up corrupt file.

Redownloaded and tried again with 7 Zip.

Still comes up with CRC Failed. File is broken.

Maybe try and upload it without compression?

I just downloaded it and it is good. You must be having problems with your internet connection or a poorly behaving bulk downloader program. Turn off any download accelerators and just let the browser download it.

I've tried downloading it on 3 different computers.
Win7 64bit/32bit and WinXP Pro (Freshly installed) - Fails CRC on all 3.
Downloading pretty quick at close to 2MB/s

I'm beginning to think this is not ment to be for me. {pounding head against keyboard}

I appreciate you guys trying to help me. Thanks!

It does not appear to be meant for anyone:
Code:
core2quad Downloads $ unzip -t mmcblk0p1-k3g-3.3.zip
Archive:  mmcblk0p1-k3g-3.3.zip
    testing: mmcblk0p1.img            bad CRC fb5ad0ed  (should be 1de996c8)
At least one error was detected in mmcblk0p1-k3g-3.3.zip.
and:
Code:
core2quad Downloads $ 7z t mmcblk0p1-k3g-3.3.zip

7-Zip 9.20  Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov  2010-11-18
p7zip Version 9.20 (locale=en_US.UTF-8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,4 CPUs)

Processing archive: mmcblk0p1-k3g-3.3.zip

Testing     mmcblk0p1.img     CRC Failed

Sub items Errors: 1
Although that does not explain how GM was unable to detect the same error.

That domain is probably served by a cluster of servers and at least one of them thinks that anything *.zip must contain text files.

If someone re-posts this file, I suggest that they gzip it, servers (not even win-servers) mess with *.gz files.

^ this. I had a similar experience early on using MR. Agree with this.

The strangeness continues . . . .
I downloaded it three more times - each time using a different download tool (and monitoring my modem's line-state report).

All three report not only a checksum error, but the **same** checksum error!

I am going for it being a (physically diverse) server cluster with one or more of them having a bad copy of the image or a bad configuration.

I.E: GM is about 1,200 miles away from me - and probably is being routed to the "closest" member of the cluster, a different member than the one I am reaching.

I would now suggest that somebody push the known good copy to some other hosting service.

Edit:
I just tried downloading it to the KeK resource server (on west coast of country) - same, identical, checksum error.
The only difference seen - from the KeK server its only a 2 minute download.

I also have a server physically located within a few hundred miles of GM - but I don't have enough disk space on that one for the image.

I just downloaded again, and this time it has a CRC error. The error may not be geographic.

Whatever it is - it is extra strange.
If the KeK server was mangling bits in-bound or out-bound, I would have heard about a long time ago.
