Ok for some reason when I press on “update from SDcard” (there’s no “install zip from SD card”), it doesn’t show the SD card content but the actual phone content.
And I’ve tried copying the two files in the phone to install from there, but it doesn’t work, when I try to copy it says that the phone doesn’t allow such files to be copied into the phone.
Does anyone know what seems to be the problem?
Thanks in advance.

This means that you are using the Stock Recovery and not the CWM recovery.

Do a quick search on how to root, use the CF-ROOT kernel (Unsecure) it comes bundled with CWM recovery.

Once done, going to the recovery menu will yeild the proper results.
