    Hello, I have followed the following direction to the letter. When I get to # 10 I get the message. E:cant open /sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory) Installation aborted.
    When I download the zip file do I open it or save it? I saved it then renamed it and copied it to the root directory. Do I need to download a zip program to my droid to be able to open it? Please HELP. :)

    1. Download ESE81update.zip
      thanks to Pete of Bugless Beast for creating this file
    2. rename the downloaded file to update.zip
    3. mount Droid to computer
    4. copy file from computer to root of sdcard
    5. unmount card from computer
    6. hold X while rebooting until SPRecovery screen comes up
    7. wipe data factory reset
    8. install
    9. allow update.zip
    10. install /sdcard/update.zip (depreciated)

    You save the file to your hard drive, then rename to update.zip
    Make sure your file isn't named update.zip.zip
    Right click the file > properties. It will display a file name there.

    When copying to the sdcard you need to make sure the update.zip file does NOT go into any folder on the card.
