Hi Guys

been searching for hours for a solution but can't find anything.

Installed Lambros Rom - all fine. I've booted into recovery to put my old rom on and I get the following error:

E: Can't Open/cache/recovery/command

--Install from sdcard--
Finding update package
Opening update package
Verifying update package
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted.

So i've reformatted the card, wiped the phone cache and tried several different rom and I get the same error. Using ClockWorkMod recovery and rom manager.

Can anyone help? Is this a common error?

Bootloader 0.80
Baseband 32.42.00.32U_5.09.00.20

Try disabling verification in clockwork. From memory I think its under the advanced option. It says toggle verification. Hope this helps

It is the signature verification but to toggle it you need to (in recovery) go to 'install update from zip' and there should be the option to toggle it.

I have the same problem. My question is whether there is anything I can do to avoid this problem the next time I upgrade to a newer version of leedroid?

BTW my HTC Desire was unrooted using the unrevoked method and I'm currently running leedroid 2.2f.

Thanks in anticipation.

I still have bootloader 0.80 - this sort of indicates I didn't upgrade to the OTA 2.2 can someone back me up on this?

If I unroot my phone to 2.1 using a gold card and then re-root do you think this will work?

^ This.

All you have to do is go into recovery, install zip file from sd, and toggle the signature verification. This has happened to me a few times; I just simply toggled it, and the ROM flashed perfectly.

You need to be in recovery, not in fastboot.
Are you even rooted and have a custom recovery image?

You need a fake flash recovery image.


AmonRa version can be found here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=689778

download it, place it on SD card. Boot into fast boot, chose run update.zip and it will boot in to the fake flash this is where you get all the option you need.

Get back to me if you have an trouble.
