    I apologize, this is the first time I have ever posted on a forum and I couldn't figure out how to ask a question concerning that particular post and not include the post. I will not make that mistake in the future. The file is named update.zip so this isn't the problem.

    How did you verify that it was named update.zip? And thank you for getting rid of that quote. It's hard enough for newbies to read all 136 pages of the thread. In general it's not a bad idea to quote specific posts, but in this case we knew what you were talking about. No worries.

    I literally just did this ten minutes ago and had no problems. CLN replacement for my old Droid that was having some MAJOR signal issues.

    So, is it on the root of your SD card? How did you rename it in the first place?

    Well.....thanks to you my brain kicked in and I realized I never copied the file to my SD card. Yes I feel stupid but I just completed the process and it worked like a charm. Thanks for your help and patience with this newbie.

    We've all done it. There's an option in SPRecovery if you ever need it to mount USB mass storage for quick access to the SD card.

    Why are you "reflashing"? FRG83D is the latest out.

    You're going to root your phone but you couldnt figure out how to post a reply that didn't include the entire text of the post you were quoting? Sorry, but that just struck me as hilarious.

    This is happening to me as well.

    Getting an installation aborted message myself on my D1. I had the phone rooted running CM6 for a bit but it started fritzing out on me so I flashed back to stock, not realizing I'd lose my root. Then, to make it worse, I accepted the OTA updates, so it's current.
    This is happening to me as well.

    Anyway, I run through your walkthrough, everything works (I have to rename to MC1.SBF but otherwise the flash goes well on win7). When I open sprecovery, I hit "allow update.zip" and then "install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)" and get this message:

    -- Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    Installing update...
    Installation aborted.

    No explanation whatsoever of the problem. I've redownloaded the update file twice, made sure it's not update.zip.zip or anything, and dug through the forums. Any ideas?

    Has anyone come up with anything new?

    Thanks
