    Nothing has changed.... if your file browser does "not" show extensions, then don't add one... "because its already there, you just can't see it because you have your browser set to "not" see them".. if you add one, you will have two extensions of .zip and the install will not see the file as its only looking for a update.zip.... not a update.zip.zip

    Remember.. just because you can't see the extension.. its really there and the install process sees it too.

    No one is changing the rules of how to install.... its just that people are messing with thier files and can't see the extensions "a very bad practice because if the extension gets altered, that determines which app tries to utilize it"

    Ok, I'm not even close. When I change the name to update, it isn't downloading. It says "Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone.

    i'm passing this info along because I couldn't figure it out myself and I wanna help anyone who's suffering the same confusion....

    you need to download an APP called "download crutch"... let's you download files with no APP association... this is what I was missing.

    you shouldn't be downloading this directly to your phone (if you can help it). download it to your PC and copy it to your SD card.

    if you need to download it to your phone, you don't need to install additional apps. just turn off the "allow unknown sources" in the application settings in the main settings screen. be sure to turn if off again after done.

    To the people with the Downloads tab, where did you get your update from?

    I got mine DIRECTLY from the Google website and I still have the Verizon tab. I even cleared the cache of the Market application and still the tab is there.
