    Whole-file signature errors. Run out of options

    Hey all.. Thanks for taking a look at this.. I'm just about at my wits end trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.

    OK so what I've done so far is root my fascinate, that was the easy part.

    I've then downloaded Clockwork Mod and I've flashed the CWM recovery onto my phone using Odin using the guide and tar file found here:
    Clockworkmod installation how to for windows / *nix - xda-developers

    But since the clockwork package is 404'd, I went with this one here:
    [RECOVERY] [3/30/11] Updated ClockworkMod for ALL ROMs - xda-developers

    I then boot into CWM and selected Flash CWM Recovery and selected the Samsung Fascinate.

    I've then booted into Recovery mode (stock BLUE 3e) and tried to apply the update.zip but am presented with the whole-file signature error..

    I've also tried to backup my current ROM AND partition my SD card but get the same error..

    So can anyone tell me what I've done wrong? Are there any steps that I've left out? I've looked high and low for all the answers but I feel like I'm just not getting something. If anyone could provide suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it! Cheers.

    Hi redan

    It sounds like you used ROM Manager. Is that the case? Once in CWM you do not need to flash recovery. I'll look at the link and see where you might have gotten confused or where the info is out of date.

    I didn't have to get very far in the first link to see that they are out-of-date because they mention ROM Manager.

    Don't worry if you used ROM Manager it will be easy to fix.
