Default clockwork failed to verify whole-file signature

I was using 2e recovery to make a nandroid back up, then went back into recovery to flash a mod but Rom manager didn't boot into recovery right. A exclamation mark pops up in a triangle, then nothing happens until i press the home button and recovery but with this error "failed to verify whole-file signature". Now i can't use cwm to flash anything. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Try uninstalling Rom manager, then re-download it and re-install it and re-flash it.

Had same issue with the verification, this is how I ended up fixing mine.
1. Odin with "froyo no brick eugene", and the pit
2. Place CWR on sd card, reinstall updates may have to do this process twice till you boot into CWR, if verification error do the following.... place the
CWR voodoo recovery on. Rename "update.zip" and go about it this way.
3. Once in recovery you should be able to flash any rom, as usual wipe data/factory reset, cache,davlik. Should be good to go, Voodoo CWR has helped me, been through this process twice.

Had this problem also. Try using hardware keys for recovery instead of ROM manager. It happened with eugene gingerclone r2. I think it's because the cwm recovery on the kernel and the update.zip are two different versions.

Hello,

I am on a Samsung Galaxy S (original rom) with froyo.xwjpa and i can't get clockwork to work. ("failed to verify whole-file signature") Kernel: 2.6.32.9 (rooted phone with lagfix)

What to do?

I tried the update.zip via the 3 button method and via the "ROM Manager" (clockworkmod 2.5.1.2)

(I want to flash my phone with the "Darkys_V8.0_Gingerbread_Edition_Wipe")

I went from the Unofficial Froyo to Macnut R14 to Obsidian v4.2 and now to Nero v3. I had this problem on Obsidian, I forced into recovery by holding down the volume buttons and the power button then let go after the vibrant logo is shown twice, then flashed a new ROM and it worked, so after switching ROM's (Nero 3), clockwork is working now. I really don't know why it wasn't working, I was unable to flash any mods, themes, or kernels but a ROM worked.

I'm not to knowledgeable about the I9000 Samsung Galaxy S, even though the Vibrant should be identical except for the FFC and ROM, but you can try this:

Did you try disabling your lagfix?

If not then give that a try. If that doesn't do it, uninstall ROM Manager, then reinstall it, open ROM Manager, reflash clockwork, I believe the newest version is 2.5.1.3, then try the 3 button method.

I have the same problem too (using 3e recovery).

Tried pressing the vol + power keys to get into recovery mode, but still getting "failed to verify whole-file signature"

I just rooted my stock Froyo Vibrant and installed ROM Manager so this is a brand new setup. No other ROMs installed. I am getting the E:failed to verify whole-file signature error with no luck.

Tried the following:
-Reinstalling ROM Manager and selecting "Flash Clockwork Recovery"
-Rebooting using "Reboot into Recovery" - I get stock recovery text
-Selecting "reinstall packages"
-I get the error above
-Turn off phone and use Vol Up + Vol Down + Power to boot into stock recovery
-Select "reinstall packages"
-Same error

I want to flash the Bionix-v ROM, but I want to get a nandroid backup first since I've already bricked a Vibrant before with no backup.

Any help would be appreciated!
