A: When you switch from a BREW based phone (Verizon LG phones) to an Android phone Verizon may send these messages. To get rid of them power off the phone, remove the battery for 2 minutes, turn it back on, call *228 and select option 2.

Q: I just tried to flash a ROM from recovery on my Android phone and got “Verification Failed, Installation Aborted” What happened?
A: Before you can flash a custom ROM the .zip file must be digitally signed in the ROM kitchen, if unzipped and re-zipped it will lose its verification, this happens often using the Safari browser as it likes to decompress .zip’s. Or if your download is corrupted (download the ROM again) it will fail the Verification.
