1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I downloaded a kernel to flash, I renamed it update.zip (I was careful not to have it update.zip.zip) and then I booted in recovery and tried to install it, but I receive the error:

    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command

    --Install from sdcard
    Finding update package
    Opening update package
    Verifying update package
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    anyone know what the problem is? Thanks a bunch

    GUESS #1: You are already on 2.1

    GUESS #2: You are not on SPrecovery.

    Fortunately you didn't specify either so really my third guess is
    GUESS #3: You like MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE CREAM

    Best regards,

    Im on a rooted 2.1 (the walkthrough on droid life where you go back to stock 2.01 first) as for the second part, I'm pretty sure I'm on SPrecovery, i haven't changed it at all or used another one like rom manger. EDIT: It looks like I'm using the stock android recovery afterall

    Awesome! We're on the track to success.

    Dry DMUpdater or ROMManager (market) to get a different recovery.

    If not successful... go to the sticky threat on SBF of SPRecovery - install that.

    best of luck to you!
