    I'm guessing you're not aware that .rar is basically the same as .zip?
    you will most likely need a program to extract the rar, so let me point you to 7-zip.
    download and install it, then download the the 1.11 firmware.rar, right click - 7-zip - extract files [​IMG]

    The final items that should be in your MicroSD uncompressed. The raring and zipping is to make it a convenient package when sent over the tubes.

    everyone needs 7zip or winrar or something of the sort. how else are you gonna get roms?! (I mean there are other ways but the only ones I use involve .zip or .rar)
