    I followed them step by step. Flashed 219 according to [HOW TO] Restore your Motorola Droid 4 (XT894) to stock [Windows Only]
    Im getting E:failed to verify whole-file signature and then E: signature verification error

    Did it first with it rooted then attempted again unrooted.
    Same thing both times

    I hate to barge into the middle of a conversation, but I need an explanation also. I just tried to install the latest ICS update in safemode and found myself with a grey-screen brick. The installation didn't really even begin and came up with a (status 6) error. I was easily able to switch back to non-safe mode and restore my previous settings so no harm done, but I would much like to be able to conquer this mystery and flash roms as I please.

    You cannot use Safestrap to install the leaks.

    You have to install the leaks in stock recovery.

    Edit: Quoted wrong post lol. However it still means the same.

    Jayetruth and MemphisTiger:

    Did you download the leaks today? Which ones (200, 206, 208, 211, 212, or 213)? If you guys both downloaded the same leak file today and are having the same problems then I'm thinking the download my be corrupt.

    Use the Motofail root tool instead, that one has always worked.

    Each of you tell us what you had on the stock GB (root, safestrap, anything else).

    There shouldn't be a verification error unless something was not matching up. Therefore the flashing of 219 did not complete or there are remnents of Safestrap left in the system file. I mentioned a couple pages back that there were a couple lines in the system file that must be modified. Uninstalling Safestrap does not always clear the modified logwrapper files so that can cause an error when updating. When you update the stock system has to be completely stock (except for rooting).

    The other problem is that assuming 219 is completely stock but the update is failing then the ICS leak update on your SD card may be corrupt. Also be sure to place the update in the SD card and not in any folder on the SD card.
