Update: I put the zip file on the sd card using my laptop but the same error again. So I tried the whole install process again, this time on the laptop and it seemed to be going well. It opened up RSD this time and went to the fastboot process. It got about 1/4 through the the install process after verifying and beginning the process, then stopped.

E: failed to verify whole file signature
E: signature verification failed
Now the phone wont boot at all, it shows the M and dual core screen, then it goes to all black screen with soft buttons lit and stays that way. Advice please!
