Any help would be greatly appreciated.
you need to be completely out of the shell,and the normal prompt.
you can accomplish the same thing by just powering off the phone and then powering on(vol down+power) into hboot. if hboot does not find the PB31IMG,there is something else wrong(reread the OP there are some tips for flashing PB31IMG files)
