    Please help I have a hero on orange. I have managed to root the phone and can download root apps etc.

    I am struggling to get a new rom ( can anyone recommend) downloaded. i have installed an app called "rom manager" which gives me the option to install rom from SD card. I have or think i have a villian 10 rom in zip format which i have on the root of my SD card.

    It is recognised when I search on rom manager gives me 2 options to backup and wip/clear cache and says press ok to complete install.

    I press ok and nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? should the rom file be zipped and if not can anyone give me a few short steps from here??
