    It has to be an APK. The instructions the themer gave were to remove the .zip extention and throw the APK on the SD card. Im hitting a road block when everyone else replying to the OP seems to have no problem. Im sure im just over looking something retarded. Thanks.

    Get a program called 7zip for your PC and open the .zip you d/l with it, you can then extract the file to your PC and then put it on your sd card

    All you gotta do is put it on your sdcard and change the .zip to .apk all done.

    If it's an actual compressed .zip file and not just an .apk that got renamed .zip you can open it in Astro to do the install on your phone or decompress it like Tallica suggested. If it's just renamed .zip from .apk then you'll need to have visible file extensions on your PC to do the renaming.

    If you need help getting the latter set up I can link you to a nice set of instructions here on the forum.

    +1 ^^^ this. Just change the extension. It seems as though most times when a .apk file gets downloaded, the extension can get changed to .zip. NOTHING else needs to be done to said file except to change the extension back to .apk.
