with regards to the RUU, i am running it on the PC and following the steps of the utility. When iv accepted the options it gives me the message "verifying phone information" this then disappears after 30 seconds and the utility shuts down without any error messages or warning.

If your gold card is made correctly,you shoukd be able to.flash that one
any luck? sorry for the short reply,i was in the midst of family thanksgiving activities.
if you cannot get the utility to update the phone,you can try extracting rom.zip in the following manner:
the .exe utilities can be finicky,so if you have trouble getting it to run, you can extract "rom.zip" in the following manner:
-start the utility
-check the "i understand" box to move on to the next screen
-hide the utility temporarily out of site
-search your C drive for "rom.zip". you will find it in a temporary location(it will be in a different spot each time you run the utility)
-open the folder location,and transfer rom.zip to a safe location on your PC.
-unhide and cancel the utility,youre done with it.
-rom.zip can be renamed to PxxxIMG and flashed in hboot,from a FAT32 sd card
once you have rom.zip moved to a safe permanent location,you can rename it to PD98IMG and place it on your sd card. boot to hboot,and hopefully the utility will find the file and ask you to update.
if your gold card is made correctly,it will update all partitions(hopefully) and then prompt you to reboot.
try and make sure the battery is fully charged prior to starting,as it will not charge in hboot or fastboot.
let us know what happens if you try it
