I can see I'll be busy tonight trying this... that is unless you write and tell me to forget it! I hope I've learned my lesson! Although this is really the first device that I've truly boogered up! Thanks for your assistance. :-)
fastboot is described above(power on into hboot. select "fastboot" from the hboot menu). ruu mode is,as per the directions,accesed by entering the command fastboot oem rebootRUU

Don't know if this would tell you anything, but I've removed my SD card and read it in my card reader on my laptop. Everything is there and intact, including my backups.

OK... over and out! Thanks!
youre not being a pest. youre new to this,and its quite understandable youre a lil freaked out by the fact that your phone doesnt work

pretty sure theres nothing wrong with your sd card,but if you want to,you can back it up,then reformat it,making sure to select FAT32. at this point,tho,i do not believe this is neccessary.

the file you want to flash can be literally anything. an hboot,splash screen,radio,a whole rom. in your case it will be a rom- the PB31IMG for froyo that you used to downgrade.

Anyway... getting cross-eyed now. Will come back to it tomorrow.
unless you got your phone to boot into the OS,the reboot bootloader command isnt working because its an ADB command,not a fastboot command.

adb(android debug bridge) is used to communicate with your phone when its functioning normally in the operating system.

you will need to use fastboot commands,since fastboot is the mode you can currently get to.

in order to use the easier way method,youll need to modify it a little:

-power on into hboot
-select fastboot with power button/vol rocker
-follow all of step 1
-in step 2,go from the "md5 sums" command to the "fastboot devices" command. skip over "adb devices" and "adb reboot bootloader" since they are adb commands and will not work in fastboot

hope that helps
