    It's better to post this in the V8 thread....

    but to answer your issue.....

    Browse to your sdcard with your phone plugged into your pc.... look for the file called update.zip

    most likely it's being renamed as update.zip.zip

    if so rename in to update.zip on yoru card itself or on your pc as just update

    with some windows machines you can't see the extension on the file unless you set your folder options, so in some cases people are adding an extra .zip to the name.

    And Astro is a file manager app. It allows you to see all the files on your droid. I use it all the time since I do all my mods from the phone, I'm too lazy to mess with file transfers.

    sprecovery comes after you run the root upate.zip. You can't install ROMs with update.zips until you are rooted and running sprecovery. if you want to get to the fun stuff ( installing ROMs ) quickly, go to droidmod.org and download dmupdater to your phone. It roots and installs sprecovery for you, very simple. After that installing ROMs is a piece of cake and we'd be more than happy to help you with that. Just so you know even though you use dmupdater you do not have to run their ROM. It's just a quick way to get past the more tedious stuff.
