    I have a rooted droid 1 with bugless beast v0.5 installed with jdlfg kernel at 850mHz. I have been trying to install the bugless_evolution theme. I named it to update.zip and tried to install it through clockwork and SprRecovery but nothing would work. Every time I pressed on apply update.zip it would say:
    "finding update package"
    "opening update package"
    That will pop up and quickly disappear then take me back to the main menu. This happened's to all the .zip files that I tried installing. (tried both named update.zip and the name it came with when I downloaded it on the computer).

    Had the same thing albiet with a different file. Your theme file is corrupt. Try downloading it again.

    good luck

    No. There is something wrong with the .zip file you are trying to install. Period. Sorry. Like I said, I had the same thing happen to a .zip file I put together. Don't know what I did wrong, but it acted the same way. I ditched the file.
