    While using SPRecovery to root to BB.3 I was instructed to name the file update.zip. Now, I'm trying to apply a theme, it too instructions me to call the file update.zip. Won't having two files under the same name and in the same location screw things up?

    What should I do?

    Simple... apply them one at a time so there isn't more than one file named update.zip

    IE... install BB.3 by placing its update.zip, restart and then delete the BB.3 update.zip and place the theme update.zip and apply that one.

    Got it, thank you.

    I wasn't thinking that the SD card and the phone's memory were separate entities. I thought that if I renamed the BB file on the SD the phone wouldn't recognize it, much like iTunes won't recognize an MP3 if you rename it.

    Rather than delete the old update.zip, you can rename it to something like updateBB.zip so you have it if you need it again. THEN name the next one update.zip, and repeat again and again. Just a thought... but then it's late and my mind is wandering... :rolleyes:
