    This may be a stupid question but just how do I 'use' the goldcard?
    I turned my phone on with the goldcard inserted and connected my phone to my PC with the USB cable and ran the RUU - Result = failure :-(
    Do i need to boot the phone in a special way?

    Please Help!

    No, that should be all you need to do.

    Be aware of a couple of points:

    1/ Not all MicroSD cards work, some don't for reasons unknown/
    2/ The Goldcard is tied to your SDCard, not your phone, if you try a different SDCard, you need to regenerate the code. Likewise, a goldcard once created can be used in ANY HTC phone that understands goldcards.

    OK - here is all the info I can discover about my phone.

    I created a goldcard using a 2gb MicroSD card made by Kingston and i followed the process at:

    How To: Create a Goldcard | TheUnlockr

    I downloaded file:
    RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_2.03.405.3_Radio_47.39.35.09_7.08.35.21_release_130330_signed.exe from Index of /shipped/Legend/

    I turned my phone on with the goldcard inserted and connected my phone to my PC with the USB cable and ran the RUU - Result =

    ERROR [140]: BOOTLOADER VERSION ERROR

    Here are all the numbers from my HTC Legend

    Information from: Menu -> Settings -? About Phone -> Software Information

    Firmware Version: 2.1 update 1
    Baseband Version: 47.39.35.09u_7.08.35.21
    Kernel Version: 2.6.29-5f084974 htc-kernel@and18-2#1
    Build Number: 2.05.161.1 CL191838 release-keys
    Software Number: 2.05.161.1
    Browser version: Webkit 3.1


    When I start the device by pressing vol down + power button I get the information below:

    LEGEND UNKNOWN SHIP S-ON

    [FONT=&quot]Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated[/FONT].

    So far I have tried to load the following RUU files - they all failed with the same error!

    RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.23.405.1_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_release_120393_signed.exe
    RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.31.405.4_R_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_release_123853_signed.exe
    RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.31.405.5_R_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_release_126592_signed.exe
    RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_2.03.405.3_Radio_47.39.35.09_7.08.35.21_release_130330_signed.exe
