    when I select “reinstall packages”, I get a error that says: “E: failed to verify whole-file signature. E: signature verification failed. Installation aborted.”… why??? :s

      i ran into the same problem. my mistake was that i didnt extract the file “recovery” in the recovery.zip. THAT is what you need to copy to /system/bin.
      hope this helps.

      • jerral

        how do you get to /system/bin/ though?? i cant seem to locate it

        • random

          did you get modded 3e before this?

      • Jerral

        where is the /system/bin/ i cant seem to locate it, and how do i get there in case im looking in the wrong spot??

  • Lake McManus

    The ROM Manager technique does not work. Judging from forums, I’m not the only one who has trouble with this. It always just reboots into 3e.

  • Gregory

    you need to download root explorer.
    Get a modded 3e recovery.

    extract it and copy recovery on your sd card via usb cable.
    Now open root explorer and copy the recovery from the sd card to system/bin.
    accept the overwrite option and reboot device.
    now you can proceed with the Rom Manager procedure
