    This is really just a little story, and if you have any ideas to help me out let me know, please... haha.

    So I woke up early this morning and decided to port my Luna Theme over to the new Sapphire ROM. I finished JUST in time to go to work so I tossed the Theme zip, Sapphire zip, and Google Apps zip on my SD card and renamed the ROM to update.zip...

    Right when I got to work I went into recovery and wiped my Droid clean and installed Sapphire. Now I am booted up and everything works great, but I need to change the Google Apps to 'update.zip' to install it, but I can't get into my card at all. I have no file explorer and no market (hence no google apps yet) and I don't know what to do.

    I had the idea to bluetooth my Droid to my one office computer to change it. It paired, but then after opening 'my computer' the computer just flat out died. It's a real old crappy PC here. But it just flat lined and is on the blank desktop now (been for about 15 mins). So I then thought I will just put the micro SD in the card reader we have here! Well I tried on one PC and it wouldn't find my card?! Then I put it in the last 3/3 computer and nothing... It must be broken?

    Damn you technology! What else?.... Any ideas?

    Nothing like going into the office and starting the day off with a couple hours of not working. Your manager would be proud.

    Haha well it's me and my boss that work here, thats it. Plus I surely HAVE been working the whole time while also trying to find out how to just change my SD file. Yes though, I am being sneaky trying not to let him know I am multitasking...

    Just curious. How does your employer react to spending your day working on your phone? :)

    Edit: I see someone else had the same question.

    Cakes, you never fail to rescue. Still if I download the APK, could I then just click it to install since I don't have a file manager?

    jsh1120 - Haha as I have said, I am working a lot and doing this at the same time. It's a really chill job here so nothing crazy. I have done worse at work... Haha.

    I was thinking that you wouldn't be able to install it since you don't have a file manager, but maybe if she sends it to your Gmail, it'll work.

    Naa, I am at work so I don't have my USB cord. I wish. I am looking in the browser now for a Astro APK download, however the one said in permissions while installing that it needs full internet access and I wasn't sure if the real app does, so I got paranoid and quit... haha.
