if i want to dl something using the update.zip method, what happens the next time i want to dl something and that needs to be renamed to update.zip.
You rename the first one, then you rename the current one update.zip....lol
Yep....therefore rename the first one something other than update.zip.
You can only have one file named update.zip in the root of the sd card. After you have used it, you would rename it or move into a folder. Once you apply an update.zip file it doesn't have to stay in the root anymore, so just rename it or move it.

Here's the method I use. Create a folder to keep all of your roms and the such in. After you download them move them to that folder. When you want to use one of those files copy it it to the root of your sd. Rename it update and use it. When you have something new that needs to be named update just delete the update.zip that's already there, because you have a copy of it in your rom folder from the start of this post. Make sense?
