    Hi guys, I successfully uprooted my phone and now I'm trying to turn s-off back on. I attempted to use the unrevoked-forever.zip tool found here

    public:forever [RootWiki]

    by renaming it to update.zip in attempt to make my phone s-on. However in recovery, when update.zip tries to get verified, I get the error "failed to verify whole file signature" and "signature verification failed" which results in an aborted instillation. Am I doing this correctly, is there a different method for going s-off back to s-on?

    Thank you

    you must be rooted to turn it back to s-on... so you need to re-root. run the s-on tool. then run the RUU to un-root.

    Since you are still s-off, you can just flash clockwork in hboot, then flash the s-on file in clockwork, then run the PB31IMG.zip again.
