    Why is update.zip not working?

    I just installed the new BB update from 2/25 and I need the sholes overclock kernel. I renamed it to update and then I followed the instructions but I am getting the following error:

    -- Installing from SD card--
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    Installing update...
    Installation aborted.


    What gives. I hate the phone at 600mhz I can feel how much laggier it is and now Im pissed because I forgot to nandroid backup before I installed the new BB GRRRRRR Please help.

    PS. I also tried the update.zip with the smokeless glass theme and I sitll get the error message.

    First the obvious, did you first select the option above install to 'allow' the update? Second re-download the file and check the md5 sum. The only time I had this happen is when the file was corrupt.
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    is the sholes kernel an update.zip file? It's not just the boot.img or a nandroid backup of the boot.img?

    Neverrmind I fixed it. The file was being unzipped when I downloaded it and then I would zip it up again and install on my root sd card. apparently the phone will not take the file if you do it this way.
