    Did you wipe the data and cache first?

    What are you trying to install?
    I'd try downloading it again.

    Well it doesn't see the update.zip (obviously). Have you double checked to make sure it isn't accidentally inside a folder somewhere?

    I already re-installed it, It's just the ESE81update.zip, and after it installed I renamed it to update.zip and dragged it onto the root of my SD Card and made sure it wasn't in any folders or anything.

    Ok you're making sure it's named update.zip not update.zip.zip, right
    sometimes Windows adds the .zip

    Very strange, if you have SPRecovery, if d/ling the file again doesn't help, I'd say try a differnt Rom, sorry
