    Use astro or the native file browser to find the apk and click on it and choose to instal it.

    Download astro file manager from the market and rename the z4root.txt to z4root.apk....it is just named like that to allow download from that site

    Or you can get any .apk well, not any but very many from *********** it's the best. But to install the one you downloaded do what the other person said, just rename from .txt to .apk then it'll work

    Don't give up....we were all noobs at one point just stick with it. Use astro to rename file by holding down on the file then electing edit.

    You might need app installer to install apk but I can't recall.....I always use it.

    Quick note....you are going to need to hit menu, then settings, applications, and check the box by allow unknown sources. Just pm me if you need help

    Here is the skinny.....if you need more info just let me know....

    Open bootstraper
    Click top option first
    Yes allow super user and wait for success to pop up
    Then select bottom option
    Phone will reboot into recovery....in recovery you can only use volume up and down keys to navigate and camera buttom = enter
    Use volume down key and go to backup/restore and hit camera button
    Then select back up
    Wait till complete
    Use back arrow to get back to first screen and select reboot

    That's it for the backup

    If its just a theme change you don't need liberty....if you want a faster, more unique phone then you want liberty
