Do you have access to a computer that you download it to and then drag / drop onto the SD card?

Otherwise, where are you trying to download from? Here is the site over at XDA that you can try (you will need to log in / create an acct to download).... xda-developers (http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=446145&d=1290341328)

XDA. I thought I read here it could be dl to the phone and then installed by pressing the menu button and then selecting install?

Which folder should I put it in on the sd card?

You can put drag / drop it on the SD card and then use a file manager like Astro to open - it will ask if you want to use app manager to install - tap on that and then click install...

You don't have to worry about messing up your phone with z4root.
You can't really back up much if you're not rooted.
If it makes you feel any better, just make sure your contacts are synced through your gmail account or backup assistant
before attempting to root.

You can also go to contacts->menu->import/export->export to SD card

Z4 has an unroot option, but you don't have to unroot to take the update. There are threads on this already.

Make sure you do the permanent root so you don't have to keep rooting every time you reboot. You can still remove it later if you like.

I am rooted! woot!! Got titanium, wireless tethering, and milestone overclock. Any other recommendations? Quadrant says 1437 after root. Thank you to all :)
