E: Unable to verify whole file signature
E: Signature verification failed
I have been flashing firmwares on older Samsung via ODIN and as far as I know after flashing via ODIN the firmware is already written in the phone and it doesn't need to reboot into recovery and flash the update again but in NOTE3 it does this and now I'm stuck.
I tried flashing PhilZ custom recovery and disabled signature verification but when I flash the stock firmware via ODIN it overwrites the custom recovery back to stock recovery and then gets stuck again in the verifying signature thing.
Any help and inputs would be greatly appreciated.
The reason it wants to boot into recovery is to flash the csc. Make sure you get the correct firmware for your device and region
from sammobile.com and odin again, let it do its thing. It sounds like the csc wasn't valid.
