Question [Q] Fastboot 'FAILED (remote: signature verify fail)

This error happens whenever I try to use Fastboot. I don't think it is dependent on the file being flashed, as I have tried a number of recoveries and a few system.img files.


How can I fix this? I need a working fastboot to be able to install a ROM and fix my recovery.
Nexus 5 32gb

Okay, this is solved. I was rooted using the one-click method, but it seems I can't flash anything in fastboot unless my bootloader is unlocked. So I used the command
Quote:
fastboot oem unlock
And now everything works perfectly.

1) You're in the wrong forum.
2) To use fastboot you have to unlock your bootloader with HTCDev tool, and you still won't be able to flash radio/splash/some other partitions.

To unlock the bootloader, you don't need RUU. You should have just used the HTCDev tool.
I don't know what went wrong, soI can't help you. Try looking for help in Wildfire S forum.

The Wildfire S needs S-OFF, currently that is not possible on the device because of the advanced security on the bootloader,
