    I've tried 2 different methods, after putting the zip file on the root of my sdcard, and renaming it to update.zip

    I go into regular recovery, and choose "Apply sdcard:update.zip", and it attempts to Install, then says:

    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    The second method that I try is using ROM Manager. If I choose "Install ROM from SD Card", it just reboots the phone. If I choose "Reboot into Recovery", it also just reboots the phone.

    Anyone know what I can do to make it work?

    I didn't change file name and used Koush's Droidx recovery...no issues.

    If you are going to rename the file (I recommend you don't) always do it on the phone. Depending on the serttings of your PC , Vista Windows 7, etc. you can actually end with a file named "update.zip.zip" and would explain all your issues.

    By not renaming the file you negate these issues, and you know what the file is later.

    I just spent a while typing up this response on the DX hack forum, gonna just repaste it here. Please read it and it will help you....

    OK, I put the file on the root of my sdcard(without changing the name), and chose "Install Rom from Sd Card" option in ROM Manager, and it just rebooted my phone. I don't get it. And how do I boot into bootstrap?

    The names of the tools seem to get thrown around.
    I used Koush's DroidX recovery tool NO Problems.
    Isn't a boot manager another tool in Koush's bootstraper called Clockwork Orange???

    Another question while I'm at it...
    If while in recovery I create another backup does Koush's bootstrapper keep more than one in the recovery file so I can choose which one I want to recover to for future needs????

    Thank You

    FYI, NOTHING else will!! Without Droid X BootStrapper Recovery app installed, Rom Manager will just reboot your phone!!!!
