no it is not . there is two variants: 1) black king to d8 and 2)black rook to d8 .. In first variant you will win  ,but in second no ...

I knew the Rooks would be involved, but I didn't get the early moves easily. Page 6, woohoo!

I played 3. Rg8+ and said it was incorrect, when it's fact the same end result as playing 3.Bc5+

1. Qc5+ Ke8, 2. Qxf8+ Kxf8, 3. Rg8+ Bxg8 (Ke7, 4 Bc5#), 4. Bc5+ Ke8, 5. Rxg8#

Yes, your transposed solution is an equally correct mate in 5 wink.png

You can see it played out on the above #114.

This time if you did'nt say me that there was a way to win I did'nt find the solution. 

No it's not "did'nt" it's didn't, don't use that ever again.

3. Bc5+! & 3. Rg8+! are both an equally correct mate in 5 wink.png
 


Currently the puzzle can only accept 1 correct solution, (I'll add this example) I commented on this here: https://www.chess.com/forum/view/suggestions/faulty-daily-puzzle-2-solutions-but-can-only-accept-1 (& they'll be working on it wink.png)
