Also, if it is the unzipping that I am messing up with, can someone explain the correct way to do it? I have downloaded the file onto the desktop and tried to just install it with RSD from the compressed .tar file. I have also extracted the file with WINRAR and tried to install with the .xml file (no option to uncompress and install when I extract with winrar).
Phone is still dead, and I plan to work this morning on trying to get it figred out.
Also- I am using a x61s Lenovo laptop. Would there be any issues with the USB ports on the laptop not being able to do this? In some of the instructions i have read, they mention to use the USB ports on the backside of a computer, not ones in the front (for towers I would assume). There is also mention that if you fail at the very first part of the install, then it could be a USB issue.
