Hello all. First off I'm sort of new to the Android rooting scene as I have only rooted my phone and nothing else.

I've recently had my phone prompt me to update. So naturally I hit "install" and let it restart and boot into download mode but, after it goes into CWM it says this;

CWM-based Recovery v5.5.0.4
E:Invalid command Argument
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E: Failed to verify whole-file signature
E: Signature verification failed
Installation Aborted
I can provide the file it's trying to update from if needed, XDA doesn't like me posting links as a new user.

Naturally I thought I should boot up my phone on Odin and just put the into the PDA slot. But I'm worried I may brick my phone as I really have no certain idea of what I am doing here.

If anyone could please offer me some support on updating my phone, it would be greatly appreciated. The 3 hour postpone messages are really starting to piss me off.

Please excuse my ignorance and thank you in advance.

if you have CWM you cant install an OTA software update. you must use the original (stock) recovery. also you will use root when you do an OTA update. you could try OTA rootkeeper to keep the root but ive never tried it.
