Try re-naming the file to "update" and see if that works.

Didn't see the post above but renaming worked for me.

Renaming the file to "update" will fix the problem as previously said. If you manually renamed it to update.zip the phone reads the file name as update.zip.zip

Edit: Must give credit to those on AllDroid.org for the tip on renaming the file.

I have a mac... no idea how to do this. This is what I did...

Plugged in the phone to the macbook.
downloaded the file.
clicked and dragged the file onto the phone folder.
and followed the rest of the directions....

I know I am doing something wrong.

Did it continue installing or did it hang up at that point? Did u rename the zipfile just "update"?

You have to rename the file "update" other then that you did everything correct

I believe you need to open the keyboard and use the keypad to move the highlight to the second option. Seems like this was the message that popped up after I hit volume+ and the camera key. I don't think you have told the phone to actually use the update file.
