I will give that a try and report back! Thanks!
if you cannot figure out what is running on your PC and confusing the phone,then you certianly can rename the downgrade .zip to PG32IMG and let your phone flash it from your sd card in hboot.
When you say this, do I rename RUU_Vivo_W_Gingerbread_S_VERIZON_WWE_2.18.605.3_Ra dio_1.09.01.0622_NV_VZW1.92_release_199487_si.zip to PG32IMG and move it to the SD card, then reboot? Should it automatically update?
And what about the 1.09.01.0312_vivow_Radio_PG32IMG.zip file?
Thank you so much again for answering all these questions.
