    Followed the post and the video 3-5 times. After backup is complete and reboot, I try to reboot back into recovery using volume+ and Power. I go back to the original system recovery <3e>.

    Yes, I had arearom recovery installed when using odin, made the backup and all.

    I have no issues or errors with the SD card. Any ideas on why this isn't working? All I want to do is get a clean stock rooted rom

    sounds like when you where in recovery it asked you if you wanted to disable recovery ( i dont remember the exact wording )and you clicked yes instead of no.......try odin again with cwm and watch what it says when you get ready to reboot.......

    I'm on the installation of ARC1.3.zip and when I try to install it I keep getting E:signature verification failed. My first assumption was perhaps I forgot to click on the unknown sources box in settings - security, but that was already clicked. I thought perhaps it was a rom issue so I tried installing two other ones to see if that would make a difference and I continue to get that error, any ideas on what I could be doing wrong? I've followed every step along the way, double and triple checking the video before actually doing anything. Any help at all would be appreciated.
    I had this problem, too!!! Then I tried the trick below:

    Sounds to me like your still on stock recovery..if so you wont be able to install any rom............check the top of the recovery and see what it says...if it dosnt say viper/centura/twrp.........then its stock.............redo odin again and this time when it says pass in green unplug the phone pull the batter out and wait 30 secs put the battery back in and boot to recovery it should have one of the recoveries on it depends on what one you used.......

    and it worked!!!! woohoo!! rooted and 1.2 ROM,  now waiting for my apps to update. I have to fix dinner, so I'll play more with my phone tomorrow!!:) Thank you for the great video--it only took my noob self forever lol:)
    Looking forward to customizing and learning more...donation will be coming in the fall:) --money is tight now:(

    make sure it says CWM or TWRP at the top of the recovery if it says some thing like 3E then thats stock recovery and it wont work for backing up......if it is stock then do the odin thing over again and this time when it says PASS unplug the phone from the pc pull the battery out and wait at least 30secs,replace the battery and use the button combo to boot right to recovery,that will get you the custom recovery.........if you mess it up or afinger slips of one of the buttons dont worry just do the odin thing again, and pulling the battery out after passing,it wont hurt the phone........if that not the case i left you a pm with some of the other ways to try to fix it........

    Well, while in odin... after i place the tar file in the pda box and click start ( i did uncheck auto reboot) instead of pass i get a RESET. Is that holding me up? and i didnt see either cwm or 3e or anything like that at the top of recovery. backup still works fine everything passes until i get to the last stretch of the backup which is data backup. it runs about halfway through then throws the error while making backup of /data! im gonna try odin once more and try removing the battery for 30 secs and booting to recovery and going from there. will post results when done.
