    Make sure that the zip is on the root of the sdcard, not hidden in a folder.

    I'm assuming you're on windows. Right click on your SD Card when it is in the computer, go to format... and try formatting it in FAT32 (I'm on a mac, but I'm pretty sure these are the right steps). This will erase the whole card. Put the zip file on the root of the sd and try it again.

    Yes they can check for root, which is why you need to unroot.
