    So you are having problems with installing the beta key? It can be a pita, but I copied it into a notepad and made sure I didn't have any extra spaces or was missing any characters. Then copy that over to the cmd window and run revolutionary.

    Flash the 1.13.651.7 RUU again. But this time we'll do something different:

    Open Start > Run. Type "%temp%". Clear out everything (this is your windows temp directory). Leave this window open, open a new window, find and run the RUU. In your temp directory, you'll see new directories be created. In one of the folders, there is a file called "rom.zip" Copy that to another folder and rename it to "pg86img.zip". Then close the RUU (you don't need to use it, we just wanted it's file).

    Now take your pg86img.zip and copy it to the root (base) of your SD card. Unplug your USB cable and reboot into bootloader. The bootloader will detect the RUU and flash.

    After it's done, turn the phone off, pull out the battery, and wait a minute. Hook everything back up and then turn it on and try revolutionary again.

    No good it said...
    "MAIN VERSION IS OLDER!
    UPDATE FAIL!"
    I ran the RUU 1.13.651.7
    I have the RUU 2.17.651.5

    Then the downgrade to 1.4 didn't work. You might have to run the 2.17.651.5 RUU and then try to downgrade to 1.4, again.

    So even though my phone shows HBOOT 1.40 it might not trully be it, instead its actually still 1.50?

    You did mention in the other thread that your first attempt at downgrading failed and the RUU didn't flash properly. So I think you will need to try again.
