    Unhappy why cant i get SP Recovery to work?

    ive got sp recovery working on my phone but whenever i move a zip file to my phone and rename it "update.zip" with extensions shown, it always pops up with the same BS "Can't Mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or dev/blockmmcblk0)
    (no such file or directory)
    (can't mount SDCARD:update.zip
    installation aborted

    are you sure you have the update.zip on the root of your sdcard? it sounds like you have it in a folder, and that's why it can't be found.

    in Spre, I just rename the zip to "update", minus quotes. I believe it adds the .zip automatically.

    "root of sdcard" means you put it right on your sdcard, not in any folder. in other words, when you mount your phone and copy the update.zip from your pc, you just highlight the removable disk drive (that represents your sdcard) and just paste it there. you don't copy it into any folder.

    don't extract it - just put on sdcard and install thru recovery.
