probably a standard question. I would like to install cyanogenmod on my device. There is a ROM available which I would like to try. I can boot my device into recovery mode. I can choose to flash the zip to be flashed, I do however get the "E: failed to verify whole-file signature" error, presumably because the image is not signed by Samsung.
- To get around this problem, is it necessary to install TWRP / CWM or is there another way to flash the image?
- Is TWRP/CWM device-dependent as well?
- If yes, where can I find an image suitable for my device (I don't want to hard-brick the device by getting the wrong one)?
- The link above mentions a recovery image. However, this image has a *.md5 extension and not *.img. Isn't the latter required (at least for odin3 / heimdall)?
