Make sure it is in the top-level directory of the sdcard.When i go to apply the zip in recovery it says path not found? Its named Update.zip and its in my sd card. Any one know what to try?
Make sure it is in the top-level directory of the sdcard.
Make sure Step #3 install-vh.sh was successfully completed (and thus you are running stock recovery)
Sometimes people have multiple update.zip files on their sdcard and they confused which one is which. Compare the file sizes for the update.zip to make sure it is the right one.
It shouldn't make a difference because it is a FAT32 filesystem, but try renaming Update.zip to be update.zip (lowercase U)
How did you put the update.zip file on your /sdcard?E:failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory)
E:signature verification failed
Not sure what i did wrong. My phone is ZVD right now, and i put the file (as update.zip) in where my download, data,LOST.DIR, DCIM is. Am i suppose to put it somewhere elas? As far as i can tell i got the install-vh.sh right.
ls -l /sdcard
How did you put the update.zip file on your /sdcard?
If you did it in windows drag and drop, make sure it doesn't have a funky name like update.zip.zip which might show up as update.zip on windows due to file extension hiding.
Actually boot into Android, start an adb shell from command line on windows, then type
post the output (you can remove whatever you don't want to show, I only care about files named update.*)
This is probably obvious, but since this method was originally intended as a ZVH root, is there a ZVJ recovery that should be used in step 3 instead of the ZVH recovery? I don't remember needing to flash anything when I rooted ZVD, and "reboot to recovery" seems like something slightly beyond my beginner's grasp of this stuff. (i.e. more ways for me to screw it up.)
And just to confirm -- Has anyone tried this using terminal with a Mac? No difference?
Thanks in advance...
It shouldn't matter what os your running, you just won't be able to run the executable file seeing how thats for Windows. so you'll have to manually copy (or adb push) the folder '000zvhroot' (i think?) from the 'Copy2SD' folder. Just make sure you put on the root of your sdcard (not in any folders). Do the same for the update.zip files (Make sure its update.zip not update.zip.zip). You'll probably need to swap them, first one is 90+ mb the second 20+ mb.And just to confirm -- Has anyone tried this using terminal with a Mac? No difference?

Recovery doesnt matter, so ZVH stock recovery is fine. You will want to replace with xionia anyways to run custom roms. Not really sure on the mac issue though.
