    Exclamation What is causing my CWM error? (SOLVED?)

    And How do I fix it. I have read that it might have something to do with having a 3E flash?
    I'm pretty new to all of this, so I have no idea what this mean nor do I have a clue as to how to fix it.

    verifying update package...
    [HL]E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:signature verification failed[/HL]

    installation aborted.

    I appreciate all help given.
    Thanks

    Yeah I got that too when flashing CM 7.1 I had to disable signature verification.

    But of course only do that if you know the ROM comes from a trusted source!

    i believe currently rom manager is not very capable with the s2. So for backing up or restoring just use CWM for now

    Yea I don't think Rom manager gets along with Samsung devices very well from what I read so like sailador said just flash using CWM.

    basically you can backup your nandroid by going into recovery. That is by turning off the phone then hold both up and down volume button and power button, when you see the samsung galaxy logo then release it. That should get you into recovery. Once you there then do your nandroid backup

    I think I found the answer to my question on XDA.

    Getting "E: Signature Verification Failed" in CWM?
    One of two things happened:
    1) You used ROM Manager even though it is listed in BIG RED LETTERS above. In which case flash codeworkx kernel and this time DO NOT USE ROM MANAGER.
    2) Go into CWM click Install Zip from SDCARD>Toggle Signature Verification. Should see "Signature Check: Disabled". If it says "Enabled" then try reflashing kernel in Odin again.

    Well judging by the hundreds of people who are aslking the same question about the constant messages reporting "signature verification error" this is obviously a pretty common one. So many people offer the helpful advice to turn off signature verification but none of them is aware that this option is simply NOTavailable in some versions of CWM Recovery. I have what I believe is the latest version on my Galaxy i9000, running android 2.3.6 and CWM version2.5.1.2. I have spent many hours looking for a suitable fix for this problem but obviuosly have been unsuccessful so far. Just how many versions of CWM-R are there and where can we find one that offers the "toggle signature verification" feature?

    many thanks !

    You should go to an I9000 forum - this forum section is for the Galaxy S II on AT&T (SGH-I777) which never saw a CWM version lower than 5.0.2.3.

    In general, to get properly working CWM on most Samsungs, you need to install a kernel that includes it. The way to do this varies from device to device. On the I777 the choices are codeworkx's reference kernel, my kernel, or SiyahKernel. Information on these can be found on XDA. For I9000 - XDA is the place to go, but a different forum section.

    When on XDA - SEARCH BEFORE POSTING. In general, if you haven't spent 2-3 days reading through various threads on the forums for a given device, especially ALL sticky threads, Googling terms you don't understand, you should not post there.
