    Any ideas?

    Using Bootstrap Recovery on Droid X. ADW launcher on Blur

    Backup, no problem. Wipe, no problem.

    When I go to SD card to install .zip, it is not recognized and all I can see are file folders. If I create a folder for the .zip, I can find and load it. I want to install a new theme and wondering if I am going to have to create a new folder each time or should Bootstrap be able to find it without the folder and why might it have been unseen in the first place.

    Thanks,
    AOE

    Make sure you choose option "Install zip from SDcard", not the "apply sdcard:update.zip", and just keep scrolling using volume buttons until you find your desired zip file

    Make sure the file is actually named correctly with no spaces.

    It must have a .zip extension. MyDroidFile.zip for example.

    I am a little strange, but I create a folder on my sdcard called ROM and then I create sub directories for each ROM:

    ROM--
    --Apex
    --DarkSlide
    --Liberty

    I then put ALL of the things related to Apex, themes, add-ons..etc. into the Apex folder, all the things related to DarkSlide into the DarkSlide folder...etc. and this makes it very simple for me to keep up with what is what. Can be done via Astro File Manager, but I do it when I have my X connected to my pc.

    I also download everything to my pc and then transfer it to my X while my X is connected to my pc. This gives me a backup copy of everything on my pc. Again, I am different. :) But makes finding things really easy for me.
