    it was originally named SuperOneClickv1.5.5-ShortFuse.zip and i have followed the instructions copy onto sd card. turn phone off. turn phone on w/ x and power button. get to command prompt by using volume up and camera button. w/ d-pad select run update.zip. it says e-signature failed / operation aborted. where do i allow sd update?
