Android 4.2: errors when trying to upgrade Galaxy Nexus
November 17, 2012 10:32 AM Subscribe
I'm trying to update my rooted Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.2 and I keep getting errors: "failed to verify whole-file signature", "signature verification failed". I have Googled the errors and ended up at XDA and similar sites but do not understand the solutions offered in the slightest. Can you help me by explaining the steps to me like I'm an idiot?

First off, a few things: I only get offered the 4.2 update when I've used the "erase data and reset" option. If I don't do that, I don't get offered the update.
As far as I know, I am not running a custom ROM. The phone is just rooted. I do own Rom Manager, however.
I thought maybe I could turn off the sig verification option (something that can be done in Recovery Mode), however, to do that I think I need Rom Manager installed so after I blank the phone and install Rom Manager and turn off the sig verification, I never get offered the update.
