    Ok I have just installed leedroid 2.2f rom with apps2sd. Do i need to do some sort of partition for it to work or has it done this already?

    you need to read the thread that you got the rom from on the 1st page.

    it really gets to me that people do stuff without even reading the authors posts telling them exactly what they need to do

    I have read the post and followed the guide, i cannot partition the sd using rom manager because when i try to it errors while flashing. There are that many guides out there i dont know which one to follow because a lot of them miss parts out like that one... It says nothing about getting a signature verification failed error.

    So i now need to know how i can get round this error or partition the card some other way

    Any detail on the error? You formatted the card first right? If so you need to download clockwork mod recovery via Rom manager

    you didnt say you had an error, you just asked if you needed to format it.
    what errors are you getting.
    are you getting the error when formatting or error when flashing the rom?


    also it does mention signature

    I go into rom manager - partition sd card - ext size 512mb - swap size 0mb - partition sd car OK - then i get this:
    clockworkmod recovery v2.5.0.7
    finding update package...
    opening update package...
    verifying update package...
    E:failed to seek in /cache/update.zip (invalid argument)
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    so the partition via rom manager was successfull?

    if you partitioned the SDCard with 512ext and 0 swap from rom manager and it said it completed then you simply install the rom once its done.
    if you installed the rom before you did this you will need to re-install the rom.

    if however rom manager failed to make the partitions then you will need to click "flash clockworkmod recovery" at the top of rom manager
    you already have clockwork mod but rom manager needs this standalone version to perform tasks.

    to turn off signature verification shut down the device, boot to recovery by holding voldown + power then click recovery

    when in clockworkmod recovery then go to "other" (i think, i dont use clockwork) then there should be toggle signature verification)

    EDIT: just seen your post.

    It's like the first option in the menu on Rom manager.

    Then you need to boot into recovery. Again in the menu of Rom manager
    once in recovery go through all the menus and look for signature verification.

    Familiarise yourself with all Rom manager and recovery menus

    Take your card out of the phone. Quick Format it in Windows. Put it back in the phone and follow the instructions Rastaman has given you again.
