I copy the update file on sd, reboot the phone and select the apply update.zip and i receive the following message: E: signature verification failed. installation aborted. What can i do?
Thx.
Root files have to be made for froyo before it will work.

so at this point its asking me for a sim pin not a phone lock pin?

I do not know, but just tell me where to get that file from.

I am on bell and its a bell phone.


it turns out i was useing a locked sim for rogers.


And the default lock code was 1234,

so i just unlocked the sim first in the rogers iphone.

Then moved the unlocked sim to the locked vibrant and then entered the unlock phone code your program gave me.

I know if i could have used the 1234 unlocked sim code to unlock the sim on a locked phone, it should have work though.

Thank you xda, again!

Since SGUX is not my utility I PMd rbnet.it and told him.... it is up to him to pursue it. It just makes me upset.

It looks like you need root for all unlock methods on froyo. I just looked and I get permission denied on bml3, stl3, and nv_data.bin So if you update to froyo you need to make sure you unlock first.

BTW you can still get the unlock codes for your phone after updating to this rom. Ive tried it yesterday and it worked. You need your phone to be rooted and copy the old data file to your pc, then you just edit the unlock bat and change some values.

Either root froyo or downgrade to 2.1, unlock, upgrade.

If it is not froyo then the app should work.
