    Thank you, I'm going to read up some more and then attempt this. If I'm successful then I should be able to go to 2.2 with no problem.

    Thanks again.

    Its real easy, just name the file update.zip(if on windows just update cause windows hides the .zip) put on the root of your sd card power off your device the power it up holding the power button+x, choose apply update.zip with the camera button and when it boots your are golden, just delete that file from sdcard before doing the next one
