Which software version and HBOOT do you have?

I was HBOOT 0.80 and software 1.15.xxxx

Whilst trying again last night, phone went into a reboot loop, white screen with HTC Logo, text got to Quietly, then black screen and reboot.

Amidst panic I tried one more time nd it worked. I did nothing different ????

i know that this does not exactly answer your question, but i used this to get root on my desire.

emmm.. not really. But i solved the problem... the third signapk.jar, that i downloaded, solved the problem.

Thanks anyway!

Even though the OP solved his problem, I'll just throw my 2 cents in here for future perusers of this thread.

I encountered the same problem when I was trying to root my unbranded Desire with HBoot 0.80 and software 1.21.xxx.

I was following Paul's riskfree method which stated that an unbranded handset would not require a goldcard.

Without a goldcard, I was encountering the same "signature verification failed" error.

I then created a goldcard (using a Kingston 8GB card) and tried Paul's riskfree root method again, and hey presto, it worked.

So, if you are having this issue, and you have not created a goldcard, might I suggest giving it a shot.

It certainly made the difference to me.

I have mounted the ZIP file on the GoldCard, and still, no joy - same E:signature verification failed message time and time again.

I am using HBoot 0.80 and software 1.15.xxx.

Please advise!!
