flash recovery: signature verify fail
I am trying to install Amon_RA recovery on my N1.
I followed the instructions from the Full Update Guide (wiki.cyanogenmod) and from XDA (recovery RA-passion-v2.2.1 by Amon-RA who does an outstanding dev).
Checked md5sum of recovery-RA-passion-v2.2.1.img : matched
Checked md5sum of recovery-RA-passion-v2.2.1-CM.img: matched
The phone is unlocked. I use fastboot to flash the recovery. I get “Signature verify fail”.
I made a thorough search and I did not find an explanation and an answer other than for rooted phone.
I do not want to root.
I tried disabling the anti virus program. I reset the phone. I checked the installation of SDK. I checked the Environment Variables in “Advanced settings” on Widows Vista and Win7. I even checked my sanity
I would appreciate any guidance to solve this issue.
