Yes because the phone is checking the signature...not the RUU.

Well as a test I tried to flash the rom.zip(unaltered). I just waited until RUU*.exe moved the rom.zip to temp files and then I just hit cancel on the RUU update. So the zip file was untouched and my phone still rejected it. That makes me think that maybe the RUU signs the zip file right before pushing it to the phone? Thoughts?
