    What ROM are you trying to flash? Some links are for Clockwork only, and regardless if the file name is correct, the update will fail every time.

    No the install aborted...just reboot and make sure the update.zip is not named update.zip.zip and also make sure that the file is not meant to be used with rom manager.

    Link the rom/thread that you are trying to flash so that people can assist you better.

    If your sure there is only one ".zip" extension and that there is only one update.zip file on your SD card, I would download the update.zip again and start over.

    Make sure you only have 1 update.zip file on your SD card.

    I would remove any from your SD card now. Then redownload the update.zip from the post. Rename it simply by deleting all characters before "update.zip". Place on the root of your SD card. (i.e. not in any folders)

    I figured out what was wrong..On my desktop when I would open the zip file it would read update.zip.zip I just renamed it to update then reopened and the file name was update.zip...Now if anything where to happen and I need to unroot how would I go back to 2.1 STOCK?...Just want to cover all my basis before I do continue to rooting.
