    Not sure this is a rescue squad sitaution, lol, but did you rename to update.zip? I know a lot of clockwork users got used to not having to rename the update.zips to install them

    Other than making sure its on the root of the sd card and checking the file name that's all I got, I would just redownload it and try again

    if your just installing extra apps then you dont need to do a factory reset, thats only good to do when changing roms or updating :)

    Can someone please explain why the phone hangs on the M logo when i try to install a live paper work using SPR recovery and renaming it to update.zip? I did it like this 100'2 of times when i had 9.8 installed? Now it just hangs at the M logo on reboot?

    I hate to be a pain but i am in the Marine Corps and there is a Marine Corps live wallpaper on the closed down BD site. Do you think you can fix that one so I can run it on my phone?
