    Hi there!
    I've been reading this forum for awhile but can't find a solution to my problem...
    1. I rooted my 2 HTC Desires 2 months ago, what went fine. Have been able to install apps that request root. And on 1 Desire I have put the Nexus1 Froyo OS.

    2) Now when receive a OTA: error

    3) I tried the manual update: error

    Both phones came from HTC directly, any Sim Card is useable on them.

    I first get the error "E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command", then I get:

    "Verifying update package
    E: failed to verify whole-file signature
    E: signature verification failed
    Installation aborted."

    Any idea what's wrong? Thanks for helping me out.

    I guess you might have figured it out, but try unrooting your phone and do the OTA update again.

    you cant and shouldnt run official ota's on rooted devices, if it does successfully flash it usually results in problems
