Your phone needs to be s off for the diag file to work. Be careful with this,as accidentally choseing flash,instead of clean s58 data can leave your phone in an unuseable,unflashable mode.

It may just not work with new firmware. If hboot is fndng the file,run a full gingerbread ruu and try again. Its important that you are 100% stock.

If hboot is not fnding the file,check for proper name,correct file,and fat32 SD card.

I am s-off, super cid, root, and I can't get anything to load from hboot. I can unzip from CM, but nothing from hboot.

ok,so youre having trouble flashing PG58IMG files.
-make sure the sd card is formatted FAT32
-make sure the file is correctly named. using windows its usually correct to just name "PG58IMG" since windows adds and hides the file extension. you can check the file with a file manager on the phone,and verify that the phone is seeing "PG58IMG.zip"

make sure you have double checked the md5s of the files you want to flash.

another option,wich leaves sd card format and proper naming out of the equation,is to flash them from fastboot. you can use these basic dirctions:
Quote:
if youre working with a booted,operational phone,you can flsh the file in the following manner:

-open a cmd window

-change to adb/fastboot directory
cd c:\foldername
(cd c:\mini-adb if youve used any of my guides )

-enable usb debug,disable fastboot,plug in phone

-check for connectivity
adb devices (should return serial number)

-boot to fastboot
adb reboot bootloader

-check for connectivity again
fastboot devices

-flash the file
fastboot erase cache

fastboto oem rebootRUU (will put you in ruu mode,black screen silver htc letters)

fastboot flash zip zipfilename.zip (will send and flash the file. dont interupt it while the cmd window shows its writinging,and the green status bar is moving on the phone screen)

*sometimes a file will fail with a pre-update error. this is normal,just enter again:
fastboot flash zip zipfilename.zip
and this time it will finish

-when you get "finished" and "OK"
fastboot reboot-bootloader (takes you back to fastboot)

-reboot back to the OS
fastbooot reboot

you can use this if you dont have an operational phone as well. you just need to manually put the phone in fastboot(select from hboot menu) then skip the "adb" commands and start with fastboot devices
i was on t mobile GB firmware and the diag file worked for me,so if you can load that,try the diag file again.

OK so it must be the md5s. this was what it returned:
s>fastboot flash zip PG58IMG.zip
sending 'zip' (415 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.841s]
writing 'zip'...
(bootloader) zip header checking...
(bootloader) zip info parsing...
FAILED (remote: 24 parsing android-info fail)
finished. total time: 1.602s

what file are you trying to flash here? the diag? or something else?

im alittle confused here... is this the firmware you are on now? what is your hboot,if so?

if your on older firmware,and trying to use PG58DIAG,then the file is nota .zip,its an nbh file. the one i used has the following md5:
PG58DIAG.nbh 8ad84248f7d6951201326b9b1e49a915

if all youre trying to do is remove simlock,you might search the web for unlock codes. ive seen them for $2-4 on ebay,so it may be the little bit of $$ to not deal with the hassle of getting the file to work,and not having to risk accidentally getting your device stuck permantly in "flash mode"

Yeah I was trying the diag. I tried zip and nbh, but neither worked until I flashed the older firmware. You are the man.
