    ok the update first listed to download is supposed to be saved to my sd card, i did that but i think i might not have put it in the right folder, where in my sd should i move that update zip to?
    When you plug your phone into your pc, and click the connect usb storage button on your phone you should get an auto play window to pop up on your pc. click on "open folder to view files" when you do that, that first directory you see is the root of your sd card and where the update.zip file should go.

    I got what? When you are responding to someone's post, click the quote button at the bottom of that particular post so it is part of your response and they know which post you are responding to. All three things should be downloaded to the same place - the downloads folder on your computer. Try uninstalling winrar and the .tar file. download winrar to your downloads folder first, double click on it to install it, then download the .tar file to your downloads folder, right click on it, and left click on extract here. It should look like the picture from the second post in this thread.

    ok , if the drivers are installed, you switched USB ports , The battery is out of the phone the entire process(probably most important) and odin is seeing the phone connected... then the only other thing it maybe is a corrupted download, maybe delete the files you have and redownload and try again.

    are you using a laptop by anychance?
