    Dafox, I know how to do this on a pc, and I can get a cab file directly on my phone. How do you put a zip file directly on the phone? What program do you need to unzip it?

    if the file is labeled .tgz then you rename it to .cab
    if it is a .zip file then you do not rename it

    Ok, guys....now I'm confused (not that hard, actually...).The file is definately a .zip. I can get it on my phone...RB says I need a program to open it. Dafox says to rename it as a .cab file. Scott says only rename if it is a tgz file (it isn't).

    What should I do? (Besides waiting to get to pc with usb cablea) ;)

    if none of the apps i named allow you to open the file, it may be a .tgz/.cab.. or tell one of us where you got it, or show us the file so we can determine what it is...

    to avoid any confusion, go to RBs page and download it. it is called something smartmonitor. it is formated right and you should be able to just click on it. I downloaded the one everyone is having problems with, changed the extention to cab and it worked.

    Sorry, from your phone, download the homesreen zip, don't change nothing, click it, it should just unzip to your documents.
