Sign Bitcoin transaction with several inputs using bitcoinj. Broadcasting of transaction failed

by Timur Panzhiev   Last Updated August 05, 2018 18:27 PM

Good day! I`m working with low level API to make tx and sign it offline. But after all preparations I try to broadcast it and than i get an error from network: 16: mandatory-script-verify-flag-failed (signature must be zero for failed check(multi)sig operation)

First of all I create tx without signing inputs, and after that i`m trying to sign every input with my priv keys.

Here is raw tx before signing : 01000000028bcf82619e93eb92cc78d5bb0b7b22d6ee419820428402e721fbac1386c9673f0000000000ffffffffd50ea1cd97af5295cddcd4f0c7c0d531fed5683bde80af45ede25a0571c31add0100000000ffffffff02087f0300000000001976a9146fb643fe63bcc6c352899298d6072cc5d4178c0f88acfa6b0100000000001976a914196e59ee4c151e742af69bca308fc1b4445c577288ac00000000

    "vin_sz": 2, 
    "vout_sz": 2
}

Here is my code of signing every input:

for (int i = 0; i < transaction.getInputs().size(); i++) {

    TransactionInput transactionInput = transaction.getInput(i);
    String addressFromUtxo = mUTXOs.get(i).getAddress();
    byte[] privKeyBytes = getPrivKeyBitesForAddress(addressFromUtxo);
    ECKey ecKey = ECKey.fromPrivate(privKeyBytes);

    Script scriptPubKey = ScriptBuilder.createOutputScript(Address.fromBase58(params, mUTXOs.get(i).getAddress()));

    Sha256Hash hash = transaction.hashForSignature(i, scriptPubKey, Transaction.SigHash.ALL, false);
    ECKey.ECDSASignature ecSig = ecKey.sign(hash);   
    TransactionSignature txSig = new TransactionSignature(ecSig, Transaction.SigHash.ALL, false);
    transactionInput.setScriptSig(ScriptBuilder.createInputScript(txSig, ecKey));
}

//serialization and broadcasting
byte[] bytesRawTransaction = transaction.bitcoinSerialize();
String rawTransaction = HEX.encode(bytesRawTransaction);
broadcastTx(rawTransaction);

And here how my raw tx looking after the signing:

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

And after all above I got: 16: mandatory-script-verify-flag-failed (signature must be zero for failed check(multi)sig operation)

Please, help me, what I`m doing wrong???
