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

    I'm using CWM as my recovery program.
    I've tried Ultimate Droid and Liquid and I got the same error with both.
    I have ROM Manager Premium and I've even tried downloading those ROMs to flash..
    Please help :/

    I connected my phone to my computer and mounted it.
    I then dragged and dropped the update file (zip extention) to my sd mem card.
    then i go to recovery mode and try to install the update.zip file from card

    If you are using clockwork you do not need to name the files update.zip. Make sure that the file is on the root of your sd card(inside no folders) and boot into recovery. Do wipe data factory reset and wipe cache then do install zip from sdcard ,choose zip from sdcard let it finish and then hit power button and click reboot now

    You cant have a custom recovery and not be rooted. try flashing sprecovery and then reflashing clockwork
    edit: if that doesn't work try re downloading the file to make sure that its not corrupt.
