    When installing a new ROM, do I need to unzip it? I'm trying to install the Ultimate Droid ROM and when I try to choose ROM from SD card I get the message "E:No tar archives found". I copied the download file to the root of my sd card and renamed it update.zip. What am I doing wrong?

    No, you don't unzip it.

    If using SPR then you do rename but you select install, then allow install, then install update.zip. You don't use the choose rom from sdcard option.
