    Is it the x8-h you have or the x8-h plus you have?
    You are trying to install an older firmware (2016-03-24) when you have a newer firmware (2016-03-28).
    Plus if it is the X8-H Plus you have, you are trying to install a firmware for the wrong device.

    Then it seems you already have the latest firmware. To be sure can you post a screenshot of the Settings-Other page

    I need to reinstall the firmware because I think it has viruses after I've done root.

    Just do a factory reset.

    I guess you are trying to use the USB zip method which you can not do if it is the same firmware or you want to go back to an earlier version.
    As @Higgs suggested try a Factory reset, or you will have to reflash a full system image with the flashing tool and a PC.

    Higgs, could you give me the most current version (2016-03-28) so that I can update through sdcard? I would be very grateful.

    Please check which device you have as there appears to be some sort of confusion to which firmware you currently have!

    This isn't telling us anything...
    ...we need the Build number!

    Looking at the dates for FW009 for the X8 series...
    Official X8-H PLUS 009 firmware (20160328)
    X8, X8 Plus, X8-H Official firmware 009 (20160324)
