    Rooting now, Problem, please help.

    Ok so I put the update.zip in the root of the sdcard. I named it right, when i checked its properties it was update.zip, not update.zip.zip. well I just wiped my phone and im trying to root now, so i hit install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated) on sprrecovery and it says

    "Finding update package
    E: cant mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0)
    (no such file or directory)
    E: Can't mount SDCARD: update.zip
    Installation aborted."

    What do I do now!?

    rename it "update", without quotes.

    Did you select "allow update.zip" first?

    flashing back to 2.0.1 takes a bit... if rsdlite finishes, and it's still saying "SW update..." then you can hit show device, but that's only happened to me once - i'd give it a bit and see if it reboots on its own

    are you trying to root 2.1 or do 2.2/Froyo?

    after you flashed 2.0.1, did you allow it time to download/install 2.1 over the air?
