Here is my situation:
I had an unrooted froyo 2.2 phone. I installed sprecovery ese81 and it messed up the phone because i had the 2.1 kernel installed on 2.2. so then i reverted back to 2.0.1, installed motocache's sprecovery w/o kernel and also rooted.
the problem is, im trying to load a custom rom and when i try to do it it gives me E:can't open/sdcard/update.zip (bad) and then installation aborted.
the way i tried to install the rom was, i downloaded the rom (cm 2 rc3) and extracted the file. I then transferred the whole file onto the root of my sd card. I tried renaming it in the sd card either update.zip and update and neither worked.
looked for some help as to what the problem could be.
