    So, I know I need to use the PG58DIAG file, but everytime i put it on the sdcard and go into bootloader it just stays there saying it's loading and nothing else happens... Plesae help me? :p

    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.

    I have similar problem. My sensation is still-off and the diag menu is never there. My sensation 4g is from Cincinnati bell.

    I got root and s-off with Juopunutbear's wire trick. Now none of the remove simlock seem to work.

    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:
    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.

    i used RUU_PYRAMID_LE_HTC_Europe_1.73.401.4_Radio_10.58.9035.00U_10.15.9035.02_2_release_220036_signed
    to change it out. that worked.

    i guess i need to double check the md5s. I am not sure how I know what is right there.

    So I changed the name then it says Parsing PG58IM.zip, then nothing.

    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.
