    Hi

    Does anyone know the process of updating CM nightly builds? On my S3 I get an error when Clockworkmod tries to update it;

    E: failed to open /sdcard//cmupdater/cm-10-201211
    (no such file or directory)
    E:signature verification failed
    Installation aborted

    I know its a common problem as I checked the CM forums but theres no solution posted.

    Would anyone here know how to do a manual update via Clockwork?

    Many thanks

    Toby

    Can't you download the nightlie and boot into recovery to flash?

    You should be able to just download the zip and flash it in clockwork along with gapps. Then wipe cache and dalvik cache and your good to go.

    Yep that means I have to start from scratch and download all my apps over again and enter passwords/details etc.

    I want a way to update the OS without losing data.

    No it doesn't. Only wiping the data partition makes you lose your apps and settings.

    Is there an update option without having to flash gapps too?

    Try disabling signature verification. source

    You might have accidentally enabled it.

    Yep I know how to do that. I want to find a way to update via the Cyanogenmod updater. Anyone?

    Have you checked over at xda in the SG3 development section?

    I'm pretty sure they could help you with your question.
