    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

    Here you go It's as it says Virgin Untouched, but it is rooted
    [ROM STABLE] Android 2.2 FRF84B (Clean, Untouched, Virgin)
    Download from OP
    rename to update.zip
    put on root of sdcard
    reboot recovery
    make a backup (if you haven't already)
    wipe data factory reset x2
    wipe cache partition x2
    install
    allow
    install
    reboot

    Good luck!
