    Thank you very much for this wonderful guide.

    I ran your recipe but using Linux as follows:
    1. Created GoldCard.
    2. I get error (see the attached log) regardless of whether the GoldCard get formatted as FAT32 or not.
    3. Extracted rom in Linux.
    4. Mounted GoldCard and copied PB99IMG.zip to the root of file system of the goldcard.
    ls /media/4EA5-1214/
    PB99IMG.zip
    where 4EA5-1214 is the name of the SDcard. The result is the same whether SDcard is inserted into phone or an external USB card reader
    5. Ran downgrade.sh as root: sudo ./downgrade.sh

    Here is the log:

      I followed each step and I created the Gold card. In step 5 (run RUU), it did not complete, but I received the zip file and I put that in my Sd card!
      IN step 9 I run DOWNGRADER but it receive this message( I sent you before). (Windows 7, 64 bit)
