    Every time I try to install a .zip file I get this error:
    "finding update package"
    "opening update package"

    That will pop up and quickly disappear then take me back to the main menu. This happened's to all the .zip files that I tried installing. (tried both named update.zip and the name it came with when I downloaded it on the computer).
    I tried this by using ROM manger, and holding X and the power button. I've tried using Clock mod and SPRrecovery and nothing still. People have been saying that the file is corrupt. I've tried different files and still get that error.
    Anyway to fix this?

    If the zip file you are trying to install is an update then you will have to remove the root because either clockwork or SPRecovery will block the update. I see your frustration in your post but that's the best guess I have based on the information you gave us.

    There is no allow installation from SD card to check. Are you talking about while your in SPRecovery tapping that one box that says it's OK to do install?

    No such item exist in Clockwork so the OP wouldn't have that issue that way.

    In SPR it's under install menu right above the actual installation selection. It says allow update.zip. The file would need to be named update.zip in this case. update.zip not Update.zip

    Hook is right, there is no "allow" option in CW, in this case you do not need to rename to update.zip. In CW you would select install .zip file from sd card and then select .zip, then you can scroll and select the file to install.

    Right now im in SPRecovey I have two options the first one is
    "Allow update.zip installation" This option dosen't do anything when I press it.
    The second is:
    " install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)" This gives me:
    finding update package...
    opening update package...
    verifying update package...
    installing update package...
    installation aborted.

    EDIT:
    Theres another option
    Choose ROM from SD card
    Pressing this say's
    E: no tar archives found

    Okay, let's focus on number 7. Did you get it to install properly and then tried to install 1 or was it just the install of 7 before moving on? What ROM were you trying to install it to? Name and version number, please. (I see that they're for Bugless Beast, I'm just trying to make sure you're trying to install them for the right version and ROM.)

    Okay, thank you. :)

    And you downloaded this file:
    SmokedGlass_BBV0.5.zip
    And it wont' install in either SPRecovery or Clockwork. Okay, do you have ROM Manager installed?

    Okay, then. Flash Clockwork, flash Alternate Recovery, then repeat this procedure 3 times before trying again with a fresh download of the theme. I know it sounds like a lot of work but that's the procedure for fixing recovery errors with ROM Manager.

    If you've already tried this then we'll move on to the next possible fix.

    OK, I flashed it three time as you said and downloaded the file again and put it into my SD card, do you want me to go into recovery mode (Clockwork) and try to install it?
