put your phone int that mode,and then start the .exe file.

also make sure your phone is charged to 100%.

i know you think youve double checked everything,and i hate to keep beating you up about it,but i have never,ever seen an htc phone simply not find PxxxIMG files when the conditions are right. i dont know what else to say,other than one of those 4 things i mentione above is still not right.

did the md5 of your PB31IMG for froyo match the one i listed?

you might check it on your sd card with an app called "scary aliens android file verifier" wich is available in the market. this will tell if yuve got a good file ready to flash.

on the .exe file...
try this:
open your cmd window,change to your mini-adb_inc directory,plug i the phone,charge only,usb debug on, and type
adb devices

then,if you get your serial number back,
adb reboot bootloader

the mode that it takes you to is the fastboot mode i described above(this is another way to get to it) and is a white screen with colored letters,much like hboot.

now type
fastboot devices

if you get your serial number back,then close your cmd window,and run the .exe file as administrator.
Ahh yes, I know of this white board, with colored words you mention.
And I did go there & do that & than run & rerun the RUU, as admin. All I was questioning was if after booting to fastboot, before running the RUU, if it mattered if fastboot was Than checked on or off. Now, I presume that once i toggle & chose fastboot, that it boots phone back up & than looks no different than when phone is booted without fastboot? If not, than yea i am missing something.
And yes, I checked the md5 of the image (Again today) & it matches the one you state on your tutorial.
I guess I could be one in a zillion that this doesn't work for. Though, I do doubt it & I am hanging on to that tiny string of hope. And I appreciate your patience in not giving up on me, as I know too well, how hard it can be to teach someone something, when you're not right there to see it for yourself.
