    rooting help

    hey guys, I've been trying to root my droid for a while now, but I can't everytime I go to the screen after the ! screen and do the update.zip it says installation aborted, I tried downloading root links from different sites but the same thing keeps happening it won't let me install it, I know I have to rename the file to update.zip and I read somewhere else that if I use windows I have to name the file update only but still none of them work, any help?

    How big is the file? When I had a problem doing it, it was because I only got a portion of the file. I downloaded to my phone and had to actually watch it all download to be sure, 10.18mb
