    Use Firefox to download it. Safari sometimes does weird things to compressed files.

    From a different thread. Very simple. File link is there as well. Props goes to Caddyman.

    Rather than retype I'm going to keep it simple.

    Here's the .zip file you need.

    And Caddyman has the easy-as-pie instructions.

    Power off phone.

    With phone off, press volume down and power at the same time.

    Phone will boot into HBOOT mode (white background/green text).

    Blue text will come up asking if you want to update.

    Click the trackball to select.

    The phone will go through some stuff and come back with update complete. It may take up to 10 minutes.

    It will prompt you to reboot, click the trackball and the phone will reboot.

    DO NOT try to open the .zip file. Now you have to redownload the file cause you broke the sig.
    Download, move the file to you sd card, and restart the phone holding volume down
