    If you want liquid you have to be on the GB update (follow this thread). As for unsupported, are you downloading the zip on your phone or computer? If on your phone then you need to download "download all files" from the market and then you will be able to download it. For root, use the Droid 3 root (found here).

    To install the GB update follow these instructions:
    1. download the zip from the first link
    2. rename it to update.zip and place it on the root of your sdcard
    3. boot into recovery by holding X while turning the phone on
    4. press the search button when it gets to the triangle
    5. use the volume down key to get to the "apply sdcard:update.zip" then press the camera key
    6. go to yes, press camera to accept
    7. when that is done you will go back to the menu, press the camera key on reboot
    After your on the GB update you will need to root using the second link. Follow the instructions in that thread, your device will reboot several times while it is running the root exploit.

    When that is done, install the Droid 2 Bootstrap (download from here or in the market if you would like to donate to Koush). From there follow the instructions in the Liquid release thread.
