You could try flashing an old gingerbread ROM and then try the RUU, as it seems to have something to do with the rom on the phone being newer than the RUU or something.
I have tried flashing an old gingerbread rom ( 2.27.841.6 ) as well as the latest version I could find ( 3.25.841.4 ) but I keep getting "ERROR 140 WRONG BOOTLOADER" and it also says the current version is 3.44.841.3 which is why I can't upgrade because I'm really trying to downgrade. The update to 3.44.841.3 from 3.25.841.4 was only about 58Mb but I can't find that and I don't think it would be of much use.
I have also tried to s-off the device with a live Ubuntu 12.04 32bit CD using ControlBear instructions but hit a snag because the sudo ./ControlBear command does nothing. I think the permissions or password may be out of date. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
I made a PH39IMG.zip from the 3.25.841.4 and tried flashing that but got the Wrong Image message too.
