noob here been on win/phones and palms for years decided to try the android and so far I like it I've been trying to root this thing and keep getting errors I've followed the directions to the letter and have even tried a couple of different update.zip packages and each time I get and error :
i cant seem to get it i put the zip file in renamed it to update.zip tried it and tells me it cant be openned... ive also put it in as an unzipped file wont work. im just wondering what if i only installed the super user app thats inside the zipped file.
ok im a moron lol i thought i had to rename it to update.zip and not just update lol
well i have superuser but i still cant install apps from my phone ive tried astro and still it tell me that my phone doesnt want to install it for security reasons. and it is on debug mode

well i know how to install non market apps from my computer to the phone i would just like to do it wirelessly rather than hooking up the phone.
yea I tried it both ways as just update and then update.zip(only one lol)
so what is super user and how do i use it.... i really just want to be able to install non market apps without plugging my phone into the computer
