    trying to stock my droid to load 2.1

    so going to 2.1 i still get

    -- Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E:failed to verify whole-file...
    E:signature verification failed...
    Installation aborted.

    i used the same file on my wifes phone and it updated in 3 min.

    I had rooted my phone but have put it back to stock with RSD

    Now what can i do? tried 5 different downloads and even have a known working file, i have factory reset the phone 3 times. offer any ideas you can think of but none the basic newbie ones, i have done them all i think

    I just tried to us dmupdater to reroot and then return to stock, i get the same errors when applying the update.zip it loads

    I know at this point i should wait for the OTA but I am thinking i will fail doing that as well, just trying to be a bit proactive

    can you do that here? i have the same issue, well i'm trying to root it. I already installed the 2.1 update with no issues. Now I get that error when trying to root. Tried EVERYTHING!

    Yes it's in the root folder
    Yes it's been renamed so the ACTUAL file name is correct
    Like I said i'm runnin 2.1
    Tried MULTIPLE downloads for the superuser file
    YES it's the correct size

    I looked on this site for multiple posts, searched for this specifically then also searched "can't open cache/recovery/command", thats the error thats displayed when the initial boot loader screen comes up. No one seems to answer, they just avoid the question all together lol

    I hate when people don't read the post. He's not trying to root he's trying to get the ota to work.

    I am having the same prob...

    I WAS rooted in 2.0.1. I used RSD and the sbf file to go back to factory state. Now I can get to 2.1. My phone was sent the ota last nite by verizon and when it reboot to install I got the same message as hammy.

    I've also tried to manual update and it fails too

    If you have roots and sprecovery it will block the update. Follow this and you will be good:

    ...what part of I am at a factory state is not understood? I already unrooted and have factory recovedry, rom, NOT ROOTED, etc?

    Yet I still can install 2.1...even when I got the ota push...fails verification.

    I am only posting because I have exhausted ALL posted ideas with no luck...now I am looking for answers outside the box

    Something is blocking your ota. Sprecovery is one thing the other is if you renamed the otarecert.zip to something else. Try unrooting/unbricking through sbf.
