Need some help, ROM Manager not working right
Hey guys, android noob here, just converted to the Samsung Vibrant from a blackberry not long ago.
I was gonna try and go the custom ROM route, but i've hit a speed bump. i'm rooted and i installed ROM manager, but i cannot get it to make a backup. when i boot into recovery mode the only options available are these:
-reboot system now
-delete all user data
-delete cache data
-format internal sd card
It seems like something is blocking it from using the CWM recovery because it keeps going to the stock recovery.
i read somewhere to keep trying "reinstall packages" and that would do it, but every time i do i get this:
E:failed to verify whole-file signature
E:signature verification failed
i've tried older versions of CWM, i've uninstalled and reinstalled ROM Manager, i've searched the web for 2 hours for an answer. i'm at a loss. i'm not going to flash a ROM until i get a proper backup made.
Here are the exact steps I took:
Installed ROM Manager, opened it up, hit "flash clockworkmod recovery," got a success message, and then hit the "backup current ROM" option. It asked me to name the file, then rebooted into recovery mode, but that's where it stops working right.
I went to the CWM site and got the latest recovery from there, downloaded it and opened it straight up in ROM manager, with the same result.
I feel like it may have something to do with permissions? When I hit the Fix Permissions option in ROM manager it gives me an error message. Not sure if that would be related or not.
