The Weekly Q&A: Week 45

Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help to you, they might still be interesting to read.

QWhen I go into recovery mode (Android system recovery <3e>)

And put reinstall packages I get the following message E: failed to verify whole-file signature
E:signature verification failed…

Please let me know how I can fix this because is not letting me install any roms

I’m currently in kernel version 2.6.32.9
build number FROYO.VUVKB5

Indeed there should be an option for that (turning off signature verification), but I WOULDN’T go there unless you’re absolutely, 100%, certain that the file you’re trying to flash is not corrupted (via downloading or something). Signature is intended to prevent exactly this kind of problems.

Flashing corrupted file can have unpredictable consequences for your phone.

Sorry if this has been answered before, I searched “Oh believe me i searched” to find out which xml files i need to edit to make my Notification tray semi-transparent. i am not asking how just which ones. I am using Virus Kingdom 3.0 Rom. I noticed it isn’t the same files as with 2.2. Or am I mistaken. Not sure, anyway any help would be appreciated.

Look here. Should be same :-)

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications.
