How far down did you unpack the zip file? Some unpackers unpack too far.
What you should be left with is three things:
- 1 folder called "upgrade"
- 1 file called KoboRoot.tgz (this sometimes gets unpacked too; it shouldn't)
- 1 file called manifest.md5sum
Those three should definitely go into the .kobo folder on the Kobo. Then eject the device, unplug, and the Kobo should start the install.
