    One other thing to check. Go back to the File manager. Long press on it to get the popup menu and then select Info. Check and see what the file size is. The free FRM looks like it's 60kb on my phone. Yours should be somewhere near that size.

    There's your problem. That file is definitely not correct. Go ahead and delete that and try re-downloading it. Check the file size when it's done because it should definitely be much larger than that.

    Ive tried downloading it several times and they are all only 1kb. I must've done something wrong along the way?

    Sounds like it. Looks like the Team Defuse (Fission) website is down again right now. I was going to try downloading it from there and see if it was working but am not able to get the pages to load. Maybe try downloading it again later.

    Of course now the page loads. There website has issues. The "Lite" version download works just fine. Try downloading the Lite version and see what happens.

    *Edit* Looks like Angdroid just tweeted that the site was back up a couple seconds ago. Must have been doing some maintenance on it. Good to see he's alive and tweeting also.

    It sounds like you downloaded the link to download FRM, but not FRM itself. I thought this was the case after a few posts but wanted to make sure first...

    You need to download it from a computer. I was just playing with it on my phone, and if you download it from the phone, the popup window is messing with it somehow and I only get the html file also. Probably some sort of script to stop the direct linking to the download.
