    Default "E: failed to verify whole-file signature" During Backup

    Hey guys - I followed this guide to perform a nandroid backup before I flash a custom ROM.

    [Complete Guide] How To Fully Back Up And Restore Your Android Phone Using Nandroid Backup | Android News, Reviews, Applications, Games, Phones, Devices, Tips, Mods, Videos, Podcasts - Android Police


    Once I got to the "Backup Current ROM" step the problem occurred. I was successfully able to reboot my phone but I'm not sure why the backup failed. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Since ROM Manager has an option for the Fascinate under "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" do I need to follow this thread?

    Did you flash Clockworkmod Recovery via Odin?

    No, I didn't. So the steps are: flash Clockworkmod Recovery via Odin then select "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" in ROM Manager?

    Why wouldn't that guide mention that step? Guess I better stick to these forums!

    That is correct. The CWM tar file needs to be flashed in Odin before you can flash in ROM Manager. Just one of the quirks of the Fascinate

    Thanks for the help. One more quick question -

    How does flashing a custom ROM affect getting a Verizon OTA update? Will I need to revert back to my "stock" ROM (debloated, de-binged) and apply the update?

    You wont even get a notification of any ota updateS. Now that your rooted your better off just visiting the forum every now and then to update your rom. Typically the devs will incorporate the update in the new roms (sometimes even before the ota is official)

    Thanks. Last one -

    So I loaded Odin and it detected my phone. I checked the "PDA" checkbox and selected the .tar file then clicked start and now everything is uneditable and the Message groupbox says...

    <ID:0/004> Odin v.3 engine (ID:4)..
    <ID:0/004> File analysis..
    <ID:0/004> SetupConnection..

    Where do I go from here?

    Ignore my above post. I didn't realize you had to remove the battery to get into download mode

    I had this same problem, i rebooted stock with that fix all package w/o root and went from scratch, for some reason my first time rooting this phone went downhill in the custom rom area.

    This is definitely a learning process, but I feel like once I do it successfully it should be smooth sailing, hopefully. I'm using this guide to upgrade to DJ05.

    Fascinate Rom: DJ05 and Beyond - All You Need To Know | Mobile Technology Deals and Help

    The instructions to flash the ROM are as follows:

    1. once you have place the battery back into the phone, press and hold volume up and volume down at the same time.

    2. Press and hold power button

    3. Watch the word SAMSUNG flash once and then twice. Now release power button, but continue to hold the volume button.

    4. You have now enter into CLOCKWORK Recovery Mode

    5. Now go and select to install DJ05 Stock Rom.zip

    Do I need to follow these same steps if I want to use JTs Super Clean ROM (DJ05) (downloaded from ROM Manager) instead of the stock DJ05 ROM? There is an option for "Install ROM from SD Card" that seems like it will install the ROM "automatically". There is also an option for Reboot into Recovery - is this for a more "manual" install?

    jrs..

    I followed the instructions on that site.
    I believe you only need to use Odin for the modem.tar file, what they call the radio. He goes on to say to go into clockwork recovery mode to flash rom which I did.
    However, after that I have flashed several different roms and rom themes with the "install rom from sdcard" option in rom manager. I also installed stupidfast kernel with rom manager.

    What are you trying to do? What steps have you taken so far? What is your set up? ROM, kernel, modem? Are you fully stock? Go into menu=>settings=> about phone and what does it say for the following?

    baseband version
    firmware version
    kernel version
    build number

    Hi fellows !

    I wanted to update my Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000B when I read I need to install the ClockWork Recovery mode using Odin. In fact, looks like this is a pre-requisite to run "Backup the current Rom" option of RomManager, otherwise I get that message; "E:failed to verify whole-file signature"; "E:signature verification failed"; "Installation aborted"...

    Well, now I am in trouble !

    I put the phone in download mode, and start the flashing the CMRecovery.tar. The process completed successfully. The Odin status is a big green PASS!.

    The problem is now the phone is in a loop displaying Samsung in "normal" font and then Galaxy S Logo.

    What I can do to get the phone working again ?
