Default ICS update issue - CWM

Hi all,

I'm somewhat new to the whole process. I've rooted a little while ago, flashed to yakju and was fairly happy except for still being on 4.0.1. With the latest 4.0.4 update, I seem to get the OTA okay - download, verify and reboot to finish install. Only problem is that at reboot, I get an error in CWM. The message I receive is the following:

ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.0.2
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E: failed to verify whole-file signature
E: signature verification failed
Installation aborted.
I get the same message both via OTA and manual install. Any help or insight to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Stock rom installed, nothing fancy. Is it my method of rooting? (using GN Toolkit)

Non standard recoveries (CWM) will stop the OTA from working. The best way to update is to manually flash the update zip from within CWM.
