    as soon as I booted up from the downgrade update...the OTA was immediatly trying for me to upgrade...so you would know right off the bat rather or not you got the downgrade loaded...once you do ignore or cancel the OTA upgrade and try the revolutionary root process...thats where I got hung up

    I put the PG05IMG on the sd card on my phone, then unplug, pull battery, re install battery, hold power & vol down to get into hboot. It scans for the zip file, checks it, then when its done nothing has changed in the menu. Still just gives me the standard options of reboot, recover, sim lock...etc...I tried reboot but it just starts up normal still running the 2.11.605.9, I've tried the .5 and the .3 links with no dice.

    It looks like I need to do this before I am able to do any of the revolutionary part, is that wrong?


    Getting more & more tempted to just bite the bullet & do this:

    as far as I know yes you do have to have it downgrade first....as you see..no one jumps in here that might have worked thru this to help you better than I...thats why I gave up and just stayed stock...until something easier or for the new update comes out I guess we are on our own...its like everyone abandoned the TBOLT

    I'm confused - did the Revolutionary Bootloader install correctly? You have S-OFF, so you should be able to boot into recovery, flash a different ROM and be on your way. After that, you should be able to clean up old image files.

    Let me know what I'm missing here. (I just read it quickly)

    its says I have s-off.....so I quess what I need to do is...load another rom on my scard and let it boot and load that as the update it is asking me to update to....OMG....lol...I dont have time to try that right now but it sounds like if I load a rom of my choice now onto my scard and rename it PG05IMG it probably would load that...

    I finally got mine to work!! Here's what I did: I ended up having download the downgrade zip 3 different times. The 3rd time it worked for some reason. Like you tho I got stuck on it trying to load the same file. I just rebooted the phone, turned on airplane mode as soon as I could, mounted drive again & deleted the downgrade zip off the sd card. Then started the revolutionary process over... Worked like charm
