    Wow, lol. Are you rooting? you can download zip files straight from the net to your phone. Or you can hook your phone up to pc then transferring files. Download astro or some filemanger and youll be able to look at your sdcard and such.... Do you need a guide to get you started for rooting?

    Using your phone, nav to the link in the Rollout thread (stickied here in General Forum), click the .zip link, and it should d/l to your SD card. Use Astro to rename it to 'update' keeping the .zip extension intact, then boot into recovery and apply update.zip.

    Ah! You MUST also move the update.zip file to root of SDcard using Astro's Move function..I forgot this important step! :wacko:
