    Did you push "Allow update.zip"?

    I had the same problem. Mount the phone and delete the zip fiile from the sd card. Rename the file just 'update.' And then drag to the root of the sd card again.

    HELP-I've been trying to root my stock 2.1 for 3 days. I need an instruction for dummies because I can't seem to get this. I have a mac and rsd lite refuses to play. Loved my previously rooted phone. Again, HELP

    I will be honest, I have heard that it is a nightmare to root a phone using a Mac. I understand there is a step by step instructional on the forum but it is really hard. If you have any access to a PC I would use that and the process should only take you maybe an hour. I had my husband's 2.1 rooted in less than an hour on a PC.

    If you are on a Mac just follow the normal steps except do not use Safari, use Firefox instead. Your issues will vanish.

    I have Eclair 2.1update1, I tried taking the .zip off and placing the file in both SD files just in case, even renaming the SD folder to sdcard, I still get the error when I reboot the phone and select "reinstall packages". I double checked the files are where they are supposed to be. (Samsung Vibrant and using a Mac)
