    I believe you have to downgrade your hboot to downgrade your radio without forever. pretty sure it's a sticky in the all about rom forum.

    He is trying to upgrade radio, not downgrade.

    OP, I have heard of issues when your SD card is incorrectly formatted. Maybe check to see if it is FAT32.

    Be careful to read up before pushing any change to the card formatting.

    so you are trying to unroot so you can flash the leaked 2.2 for the 2.05 radio correct?
    i have not done this so I can't comment on the steps. most common problems seem to be corrupt downloads and format problems with sd card.

    all i can say is unrevoked forever is easy and painless and you can skip this whole thing and just flash the 2.15 radio. good luck either way though :)

    i already unrooted and back at stock i had 2.2 rom installed and a hydra kernel was running awesome just need the radio so i can use everything ...

    the only thing that worries me about the forever thing is what if something happens to my phone and my warranty is voided...

    Depends on how your PC views file extentions. You may have to name it Update because it'll automatically add the .zip. Bunch of people have slipped up on that.
