    Ok my bf broke his phone so I let him have my Dx. Anyway I'm back to the lovely and annoying Fascinate. So I got it rooted last night and I went into rom manager downloaded my CWRecovery, blah blah blah. All was good, but when I tried to download a rom it boots me into recovery and I get E: Cannot verify whole file sig.
    I've looked all over multiple forums and from what I can tell this means CWRecovery isn't downloaded properly. So now what? I tried clearing my phone and starting again. I tried unistalling and reinstalling Rom Manager. I even tried installed a later version of CWRecovery with no luck. Any ideas?

    If u can't download any of them or do a backup ur recovery is bonked all u have to do is go into rom manager flash the alternate recovery (sprecovery) or an older version of clockworkmod recovery then boot into the alternate or older recovery to make sure it flashed correctly then boot back up go into rom manager and flash the newest clockwork recovery then boot back into recovery and try a backup again

    Rom Manager doesnt work with the new fascinate recoveries need to flash froyo roms. Rom Manager is basically worthless for the fascinate

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/samsung-fascinate-development/140966-just-suggestion.html

    Use that and follow those steps exactly. I just did it and it worked perfectly, just make sure you hit PDA and not phone!!! lol

    I attached the ODIN.exe file for you. Just open the folder, and move the Odin exe file to the desktop, had to make it a .zip file for DF lol

    Just download ODIN, use as Administrator, and follow the steps in the post I posted above. Good luck!
