wow, the webcam idea sounds kind of exciting.
I have flashed the files in this thread, but am not above doing it again.
I'm actually going to try using a different SD card and let my phone format it....I think the card I have in there I formatted from Windows to FAT32.

I'll post my findings

alright, so nothing I try solves the problem. I continue to get the same error every time I try to apply update.zip.

I googled the exact error message

"E:failed to verify whole-file signature
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted"

I see plenty of people who have had this error message but no solution that seems to fit.
I am in 2e recovery...i've tried formatting my SD card....redownloading the update.zip file a million times. I've tried Odin 3 1.30 and 1.52...I have flashed the .pit and .tar files multiple times.

I am considering sticking a fork in my eye.

What file or process is responsible for getting me access to 2e recovery? Or more specifically, what file or process is responsible for getting me into a recovery mode where the camera button DOESN'T execute the "select" command?

For those who have been hanging on the edge of their seats waiting to see if my struggles ended....they haven't totally...but I have finally managed some success.

it seems to be totally a hit or miss thing...but I have been able to get into CWR, red text and all, twice....enough to do a backup of my ROM and flash the DL17 clean ROM along with the two updates (email and social)

The only way I've been able to get into CWR....is to Odin the .pit and .tar file from this thread over and over again...until for some reason after it says reset in Odin my phone resets directly into manual recovery mode. This has happened twice, and both times I had to use the soft key to apply update.zip and both times it got me into CWR.

Manual rebooting with vol up and down takes me to the original recovery mode where the camera button works and flashing update.zip doesn't.

Even doing the Odin technique, when it doesn't fail, typically just restarts my phone into Android...except for two times.

So basically, I hope I don't need to flash anymore .zip files because getting back into CWR is like playing a game of roulette.....although strangely, I've never actually done that.

i noticed the only difference in installation from mine and the youtube tutorial is when my odin says "passed" it says 0-7, when the video says 0-8 right under passed, dont know if this helps, but i would enjoy clockworck to make vbackups and flash kernels/roms easily, please help...

OK, after reading the thread and downloading files, I tried the pit and tar files exactly like the youtube from DFGGED titled, "How to flash ClockWork Mod recovery for the Samsung Continuuum", and I get the same error when trying to run the update.zip file.

Now what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, I see I was not alone. The process sucked for me but I will share how I've managed success, although sporadic.

When I have installed a new ROM, the only way I can get into recovery mode where the camera button doesn't work is to do these things.
1. Install ROM Manager from the Market.
2. Run the Flash ClockworkMod Recovery option within ROM Manager and select Samsung Fascinate.
3. Here is where it is tricky and hard to predict. From ROM Manager I select Reboot Into Recovery. Mind you, this doesn't take you into the proper recovery mode.
4. Upon my phone's rebooting, before it tries and fails to enter recovery mode, I pull the battery, and use the VOL-DOWN+POWER method to power it into USB Downloader mode.
5. I use the instructions we've all done, ad nauseam, with ODIN, flashing the .pit and .tar files.
6. When ODIN reboots my phone it will either reboot it INTO the correct recovery mode where it works just as you see in the YouTube video tutorial.....OR it will just reboot into Android with the Samsung and Verizon animations.

7. If I notice those animations, I pull the battery, and retry steps 4-6.

8. If I CONTINUE to fail with these steps, I will power off my phone and use the VOL-UP and VOL-DOWN + POWER method to manually enter recovery mode (even thought it will be the wrong recovery mode). Once it is at the recovery screen with all the blue options, I will pull the battery and repeat steps 4-6.

This will eventually work.....and once it has done it successfuly once, I can get into the proper recovery mode from that point forward until I wipe my phone completely or backup or restore a ROM.

I'm sorry for the lack of certainty in these steps, but I've done this a lot of times now, and I've reset and restored from backups several times to where these steps have needed to be done again.
