    I am following this video:
    I am trying to root my 2.2.2 droid 1. I got all the way to the screen with teh golden droid figure. I clicked install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)

    Then it says:

    -- Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E: Cant open /sdcard/update.zp
    (bad)
    Installaton aborted.

    Redownload the update.zip file you are trying to install. The original download has gotten corrupted which is common. It should tell you the file exists, do you want to overwrite it? Select yes or ok. I'll check back in a few to see hoe you got on.

    Also, does it say "update.zp" or "update.zip"?

    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:Cant open /sdcard/update.zip
    (no such file or directory)
    Installation aborted.

    Ok, are you able to boot your phone into the android system. Basically the stock OS?

    Download a file explorer, I use estrongs, and look for the update.zip file. If its not in the root directory (not in a folder) look in the download folder. If its there move it to the root directory. Long press the file then select move. Try reflashing. If that doesn't work, delete the update.zip and redownload it. It may have gotten corrupted.
