Default Help! my phone is stuck in a bootloop

So i was trying to root my phone or whatever so i can install a custom rom and i was following this guide

http://androidforums.com/incredible-2-all-things-root/592064-guide-how-manually-downgrade-firmware-build-6-01-605-05-a.html

I got all the way to the end and was about to use revolutionary to install a recovery or whatever it was supposed to do, but then my phone started to bootloop and i followed the instructions to "flash the 0312 radio" but i get

c:\miniadb_inc2>fastboot flash zip 1.09.01.0312_vivow_Radio_PG32IMG.zip
sending 'zip' (13225 KB)... OKAY [ 3.251s]
writing 'zip'... INFOsignature checking...
FAILED (remote: 12 signature verify fail)
finished. total time: 6.046s

so do i have to hold the power button and down volume to enter hboot and do a factory reset? will that lose all my progress with the downgrade?

There should be a line above that.

Did you hTCdev unlock?

Will the phone boot? I think you have the hboot that doesn't need to be downgraded.

The reason it's not working is that you have the old firmware that doesn't need to be downgraded. Just go to Revolutionary and root it.

My phone was updated and then i downgraded to the old firmware and since then, it got stuck in a bootloop. i downgraded because i was following this guide that said "If it's 6.01.605.05 710RD use:" and i had that version so i went to downgrade.
So do i need to do a HTCdevunlock now or go ahead and use Revolutionary?

Do not hTCdev unlock. Just go to Revolutionary. Then flash the .0312 radio if you want to run Sense ROMs.

okay, so i do a "adb devices" command and my device does not come back, it also says that my phone is not recognized on my icon bar and i know i have the drivers installed or is this an effect of downgrading it and i corrupted something? i also tryed revolutionary and it comes back "waiting for device" ive tryed it about 4 times running it as administrator.

You should have originally posted in the thread you were using to downgrade. I don't know which setting you have wrong.
