    So I have a Dell streak 7. I successfully rooted the device and decided to try out some different ROMs. I installed clockwork mod and rom manager. I downloaded a few roms and gave it a shot. I did something wrong somewhere and the device is stuck in restore mode. I guess my backup didn't take because it tells me the restore directory is empty .I can't get it to reckognize the SD card I have. There is a ROM in a zip file on the device itself (in folder /sdcard2), whenever I try to install that one it stops 1/3 of the way through and tells me it "failed to verify whole-file signature" (I've tried to toggle signature verification to no avail).
    :thinking:


    It currently will not boot into the Dell Stage OS.

    I will try to use a different SD card in a bit, just want to see if anyone in here can help me out.

    I know I'm new to your site but I'm no stranger to forums, please don't flame me.

    Let me know any questions you might have,I'll answer them as soon as I can.

    TIA

    Howzit buddy! :)

    Welcome to the forums man ;)

    Don't worry, it doesn't sound too bad.

    Hmmm okay so you cannot boot the OS am I correct?

    But you can get into the BIOS?

    But I think it is called recovery for Android so can you boot into Recovery / boot loader mode basically?

    Hmm I am not too fimiliar with the Dell Streak 7.

    Damn hang on i will look into this for you buddy I need to research quickly! hahah :)

    I know this may be a stupid question, but I have to ask: did you try putting the dell streak into download mode, connecting it by usb and flashing a rom that way?

    "Signature verification failed" every time. I've managed to erase everything off of the device.
