    ClockworkMod stops new ICS update

    As this is my first experience with a firmware update since rooting, I'm not surprised at a hiccup. Below is what I installed to root. I kept the stock rom, installed a kernel that allowed for overclocking, and installed OTA root keeper with the hope of allowing an OTA firmware update from asus.

    What happened when I tried the OTA update is that CWM gave an error about not a full file and allowed me to reboot back to my current build. I checked the asus download site and the new firmware is not there yet.

    Here is what CWM says:

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

    So, what do I do to get the update? ( I might have to call my son for help. )

    Rooted, installed Clockworkmod, Superuser, ROM Manager,CPU Master, kernel with 1.6 ghz support, Voodoo OTA root keeper. Still have stock ics rom, but disabled a few services for things I don't use.

    I found this on Android Forums saying that an OTA fails if you have CWM installed. It then says, you need to go back to the stock recovery. Ok, where do I find the stock recovery? Or, is there a better solution? Could I wait until Asus posts the new firmware on their website and then download and install from sdcard? Would this work.

    Thanks,
    George

    You can flash the new ASUS firmware through CWM (just like you flashed the kernel).

    This will flash back to stock ROM and stock Recovery, no root.

    You can backup root using OTA Rootkeeper before updating, then restore afterwards. Then you will have to re-install CWM and flash the kernel again.

    IMO, It is easier to use a rooted ROM based on the ASUS like Revolver or Revolution so you do not have to keep re-installing CWM every time there is an update if you want to run a custom kernel.

    "You can flash the new ASUS firmware through CWM (just like you flashed the kernel)." To do this do I need to wait for the firmware to appear on the Asus download site or can I flash the OTA? Where does the OTA firmware save to if that is a possibility to flash from the OTA.

    Thanks,

    You will most likely want to wait for it to come up on the ASUS download site

    Yeah, I guess I did not think that far ahead, my apologies. You can flash the latest version from the ASUS website, then upon reboot it should prompt you to install the new OTA version.

    Still no success updating. I downloaded the new firmware from asus. I attempted to use Rom Manager to Install ROM from SD Card. I navigated to the download folder and hit ok. Then the TF101 rebooted without going into the recovery and loaded up the old firmware. Hmm. So I booted into ClockworkMod (on +vol down-then vol up) and got to the recovery. I selected "Install zip from sdcard" and navigated to where the zip file is, selected the zip. Clockwork promted Confirm this install--THIS CANNOT BE UNDONE. The screen showed only NO selections to confirm. Since I had no other choice, I selected No and was brought back to the main recovery menu. I then went to the computer and renamed the new firmware to "update.zip" and copied it to the sdcard (internal memory) and went through the process in the recovery only this time selecting update from sdcard\update.zip. Still all the confirmation choices were NO.

    I wonder if this difficulty is due to the custom kernel that allows for overclocking. Anyway I do have a backup called "TF101-ICS-Stock-0.7.zip" that I think will set the firmware all the way back to stock. I could try this and then see if the OTA update will work.

    But if there is a smarter way, or a way where I would not have to root again, install overclocking kernel again, etc that would be best. Of course there is Frederuco's suggestion of using a rooted ROM based on the ASUS like Revolver or Revolution, but I'm not emotionally there yet thinking that I should stay connected with mother Asus.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Did you unzip the file from ASUS? It needs to be unzipped one the (it will still be a zip file).
