    Talking about the deodexed-rooted-2.2.zip file specifically. It shows all 5 files when compressed, but only 4 when I expand it. Anyone else run into this or am I just going crazy.

    4 are .img files
    one is a md5 checksum file

    yea, I know. It just only shows 5 files when I extract it on my PC. If I do it on the phone it shows all files.

    no it was the .android_secure.img file. and I bet it is because it was preceded by the ".". anyway it worked on the phone and I recoverd right into it. Installing flyx now

    yeah for this rom you have to install it as a nandroid so you have to unzip the files and make a new folder its not an update.zip

    .format files and folders are not usually seen in shell environment, and some graphical environments.

    ls
    that will not show .format files.

    ls -la
    that will.
