    mount your phone then open it on your computer and copy the item on the root of you sd card(don't put in a folder at all, just on the card) check the other posts on here about installing the update. that's how i learned how do to it.

    hoped i helped.

    Download the file, mount the SD card, drag and drop the file on to it.

    Turn the phone off, hit the "volume down" button while holding down the power button, and it will enter set up. Keep an eye on it as it will ask you to hit press the trackball button as "enter" to continue with the update. Make sure you do that.

    Once you have the .zip file on your SD card you need to power off your phone. Hold down the volume down button on the side of the phone and press the power button. It will launch the boot loader screen where it will tell you that it found an update and ask you if you'd like to update. Simply press the trackball once. It will then prompt you again to reboot when it's finished, which takes about 10 minutes. Press the trackball again.

    Done.
