    ive tried the unlockers version of the gold card method which seemed to work but when im down grading i get error code 104.
    so i thought i would try the alternative The road to freedom for your hero - xda-developers
    but cant get qmat 506 anywhere the link doesnt work :mad:
    im on the three network
    2.73.771.73
    i bought a kingston 2gb card just for this

    I just installed PSAS (I assume you mean the other one has a virus, because PSAS showed up clean for me) and it's very easy to use.

    - Just install the free version, and then open it.
    - Click Cryptoanalysis Tools at the top and pick Crypto Toolbox.
    - Copy and paste the code you have into the very bottom box and press reverse string.
    - Job done :)

    I can do it for you if you want, but like I said it's easy.

    Hmm, I searched around a bit on the XDA forums and the only thing I found was that trying different RUUs might help. This thread has a couple of alternatives (You'll have to scroll quite far down to the goldcard section of the first post). The unlockr page has an alternative RUU too.

    It might be worth trying a different SD card if that doesn't work. The one that came with the phone worked for me.
