Default Can't install Z4root.1.3.0 on my Ideos X5

I have the Z4root file waiting on my SD card and my phone is set to install from 'Unknown sources'. Whenever I try to install Z4root, using Astro, I get the message "There is a problem parsing the package."

I've tried the installation file downloaded from different sources, in case I had one that was corrupt. Same result every time. Any ideas out there?

Hi jmacg, is this the procedure you followed?

1. Download Z4Root.apk here, extract and save it on your PC.
2. Connect your phone to the PC.
3. Copy the downloaded file (Z4root.apk) to the root of SD cart.
4. DownloadD Astro Manager at the Android Market.
5. Run the application by following instructions on the screen.
6. In the install process, press the icon Z4root.
7. After the above process is complete, press the root on your Android phone, wait until the process is complete. Reboot your phone.
The links won't work as this is a copy of the info. Neil.

Andy - thanks for your help - I appreciate it. It's a bit academic now, because I've just upgraded to a Galaxy Nexus, which I'm running Jelly Bean on.

I see you come from NZ too. I can highly recommend the Nexus, which is available from a number of parallel importers. I got mine from Expert Infotech for about NZ$510 inc courier. That's almost exactly the same as I paid 2degrees a year ago for my Ideos X5. The Nexus is hugely better.
