    Greetings!
    While I'm pretty new to the whole flashing thing, I thought I knew what to do. That's clearly not the case.
    I downloaded the MIUI Shadow 1.9.9.1 file and placed it on my SD card. I proceeded to boot into recovery, I wipe the data/factory reset, and the cache partition.
    I then proceed to attempt to install the .zip from my SD and it always says "install aborted."

    i'm really at a loss, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    Any thoughts?

    Sounds like it could be a bad Download.

    Damn, okay. I'll try and see if I can find another one.
    The odd thing is, this has happened with two separate downloads. Hmmmm

    definitely sounds like a botched download. If you downloaded it over 3G, try downloading it from your computer over wifi. If that doesn't work PM me and I'll send you the .zip I used that worked

    I originally did it on my computer and I didn't have any luck the second time either.
    I'll PM you! Thanks!

    What rom are you running now? I think you need to be on froyo to load any 2nd-init rom like miui or cm7.

    Did you unmount the sd? Sometimes it needs to be unmounted.

    I'm not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, I just know that with some of the Miui files you have to unmount thru CW prior to flashing the file. I don't remember if I had to when upgrading to 1.9.9, so I was just throwing that out there as another thing to try. That might (or might not) be the problem.



    EDITED: I'm sorry!!! No wonder you're confused! In my early morning post I typed unmount the SD, I meant unmount the SYSTEM. My mistake for typing before I'm fully awake. LOL!

    Haha! No worries! I'm gonna try and work it out, but I'm pretty sure I just need to flash back to Froyo to use MIUI. I recently upgraded to GB right before rooting. That's probably the ROOT of the problem.

    See what I did there?!

    Haha! Awesome!
    Yeah I'm running APEX right now, which is pretty snazzy in itself. I think it'll stick with it until the GB kernel comes out.
    Thanks again!
