    I seem to be having trouble finding a version of RSDLite 4.6. Everytime i click on the link for it the page doesnt load or it loads for two seconds then quits. Are there any other places i could find this?

    I just downloaded it with no problems from the rescue site where the rsd lite is stored for link 3 of my signature. How about a right-click save-as?

    It definitely matters but it will also tell you if you are downloading the wrong one.

    The root of your sd card is the open space of the sd card. Root is not in any folder. Simply place the update file in any BLANK space on your sd card and you have placed it on the root!
