    It should be where you see all your folders, not in one. If you downloaded it to your phone directly it'll be in the download folder -- you'll want to move it out of said folder. In other words, you should be able to see both the download folder and the file.

    And you'll want to make sure it's named update.zip and not update.zip.zip or update .zip, etc. Anything but update.zip (and the file extension may be hidden) and the install will fail.

    Ok I got it! I forgot to rename it update.zip!
    Thanks so much for the help!! Now is there a page that shows all the cool things I can do now that it is rooted? I mostly wanted it for the wifi hotspot. Any specific one I should download??

    My signature has a lot of answers for you, if you know where to click. Glad you got it rooted and running!

    i asked before, not sure if someone had answered ...

    concerning future OS updates coming from motorola/google (i.e., android 2.3), will i have to find the update.zip and install it manually or will the OTA update appear as it would when i was not rooted ?

    Most likely it will nag you but sprecovery will block the install. Unless you allow it which will remove root and possibly reintroduce FRS.

    You'll want the MC1 SBF, not the more temptingly-named SPRecovery_for_ESE81.sbf.
