    sounds like you were rooted on your old phone. you would need to root your new phone

    But, don't actually add the ".zip" part as it will do that itself. Just leave it as "update"

    ok....so yes, I had my old phone rooted and now trying to root the new phone. Let me make sure I am understanding...So take the UD Rom and name it update.zip. Install with the sprerecovery by pressing X then allow update.zip then installing update.zip. Once done, that should give me my ROM??? boy I did it differently on my old phone.
    Thanks
    Kerry

    Make sure you're actually rooted before you do that though. Trying to just install UD won't root your phone for you.

    If you have SP, you should be ok. Those steps you posted sound roughly correct.

    I think I am rooted. Before, I could not press the X and get the options to install or uninstall. It askes me to pick a ROM. I have a ROM (UD) on my SD card, but for some reason it does not recognize it.
    Again, thanks for all the questions/help. This is the worst feeling knowing you rooted before and can't root today.

    if you have sprecovery are you clicking "allow update.zip" before you click apply update.zip?

    sounds like you had clockwork mod maybe on your old phone. its a lot easier. you don't have to rename the file or put it in the root of the card or anything. just know where you put it
