FIle Download Checksum Error

Tue Dec 11, 2012 3:39 am

Hi,
I downloaded 2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian.zip 4 times tonight.
3 times were http downloads and once was the Torrent file by uTorrent.
After they were downloaded I unzipped them and then ran sha1sum.exe on each of the files.
I had hopes that I would receive your checksum number
3ee33a94079de631dee606aebd655664035756be Unfortunately I received this number instead
b5d2aec8ed6e69606cc89c98e34b6c9e090c60cd on each download.
Since this number came out on 4 different downloads from 4 different sites; I am a bit confused as to what is happening.
Could YOU possibly have the wrong checksum listed at http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/downlo ... ntinent=NA
I hope you do, or some advice would be appreciated.
Thanks, dave

The sha1 is performed on the ZIP file, not the enclosed img file, so don't unzip it before checking.

The ZIP file = 3EE33A94079DE631DEE606AEBD655664035756BE

The IMG file inside it = B5D2AEC8ED6E69606CC89C98E34B6C9E090C60CD
