    Well I may be wrong but an update.zip is done using the boot system. Power down the phone, power back on while holding the x button, and then select restore using update.zip. MAKE SURE THAT UPDATE.ZIP IS IN THE ROOT DIRECTORY OF YOUR SD CARD AND NOT IN A FILE FOLDER.
    The swype download is done by making sure that the file extention is .apk and not .zip and then clicking on the file and opening the app manager and installing.

    Long press, edit, rename. Change the last three letters after the dot to apk.

    Yes sir! Check out alldroid.org. I'm pretty sure that's where it was posted at. The Rome are coming along pretty nicely.

    unzip the swype download on your computer, and COPY that .apk file to your phone somewhere, than install it using astro
