    Here is a q for ya'll ROM experts -

    How do I get the phone to download the ROM files? On my phone, I can browse this forum just fine, and click the "download ROM" link, but the phone tells me "Invalid file type" or some such...

    I usally do my ROM'ing during lunch, and work blocks most of the mirror sites, so if I could download the files straight to my phone, that would be moue buino.

    install astro file manager from the market, it allows you to download any type of file onto your phone. i know other apps are supposed to do the same but I dont remember thier names.

    i dont know if you actually need to select it but there is an option in astro that says:

    enable broswer download

    try clicking that if you cant get the file to download. I use root explorer and i think it has the same function built into it, i dunno, i download torrent files, zip files, pdf, rar, etc and have never gotten an invalid file type error.
