    make sure the file is not .zip.zip (you don't add the zip, windows does that automatically)

    I'm having the same issue. I tried probably 8x last night with the same outcome. Mine ends in zip so I know that's not the problem. Hopefully someone has a solution for us.

    That is a good guide, but you no longer need RSD lite, or have to go through all that. You don't even need a PC or a mac to root, lol. PM me and I will give you "the easy way method"

    whenever I apply an update via SPR, I just rename the file to "update", minus quotes, and it works everytime.
