    Hey everyone,

    I am trying to install the Smoke Glass ROM from this website. I download the file, and I rename the file update.zip

    I go into my disc, and delete the previous update.zip file. I drag the ROM in, and it copies fine. I am using a mac. I reboot the DROID in recovery mode.

    However, when I bought into recovery, and click install it says "installation aborted". I do click the option that allows me to install other ROM not from the marketplace.

    I tried to intall BB, that works fine. However, I want to install smoked glass. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a problem with the ROM? Or am I just an idiot?

    Smoked glass v4.0 is a nandroid restore, not an update.zip. Read the instructions on the post on how to install

    So you were naming the nandroid file update.zip???? Damn....

    And you also mentioned that you checked an option to allow ROMs to install not from the Market????? What??

    That option in settings is for apps from other places than the Market........so why would that have anything to do with a ROM??

    Download the file and extract it on your computer. It should form a folder. Connect your phone to the computer and mount it as a USB drive. Move the extracted folder to the nandroid folder on your phone's sdcard. Then reboot in recovery and wipe the data. Then wipe the cache. *THIS DELETES ALL YOUR DATA* Then select "advanced nandroid restore". Next select "choose backup" and pick the smoked glass ROM. Then go back and select Restore. That should do it.

    Yes, I have SPRecovery installed. First 2 days on a new Macbook Pro. Never had a Macbook before. It sucks.

    No it doesn't. Give it time. Mac OS is a huge adjustment from Windows.
