    I have been trying to reroot my droid now for 2 hours and I can't seem to get a working update.zip file. Every time i try it tells me:

    E: Failed read footer from sdcard/update.zip (Is a directory)
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    I have tried multiple different files and I just can't seem to get past this. Any ideas?

    Is it on the root of your sdcard? Not in a folder...

    Ok if you're using astro it should look like a box with files in it. Are you downloading straight to your phone or to pc?

    Actually I think the file is getting unzipped somewhere. He' get a file not found error in recovery if it was just named wrong. And from his description of it being a folder leans towards it being unzipped so its the wrong format.

    Long press it and in details how big is the file? Should be about 10MB.

    Everything looks right. Can you try it again? If it doesn't work we can go another route to get you rooted.
