    you need to root your phone to enable sideloading(easiest way imo) but there are ways to do it without rooting using sideload wonder machine.. check out xda-developes.com forum for info about rooting and enabling sideloading. here is a link to the sideload program without rooting

    sideloading isn't the issue, it's that the stock browser will only allow you to download content that it thinks the phone supports. Since you have androzip, you can extract archives but the browser doesn't know this.

    Download Astro file manager in the market and go Menu key -> more -> preferences -> and check enable browser downloads. There may be more elegant ways to do this, but this is the only way I know how.

    beware though, alot of ROMs out on the internet are not compatible with SNESoid.
