    You're sure it's named update.zip not update.zip.zip right?

    yes sir!
    i was sure to follow directions 100%... and like i said it said somewhere in directions about error coming up, but just said to reboot, no answer as to what to do next..

    so also ill ask you, how can i remove this update from my SD card also... so that i can possibly try again or hopefully OTA update

    use a file manager (such as astro) to go in and delete it

    If you want 2.2 you either have to wait for the OTA or try to redownload the file and redo the process.
