Unhappy [Q] Root Problems Help Urgent pleaase

k after i finally succeeded to downgrade (thinkin that the hard part is done!!!!), i cant get past step 1, i keep gettin either "waiting for device", or htc black screen, or nothing happens. step 2 is even worse, all i get is "device not found", or loads of "FAILED". ive reinstalled htc sync 2, uninstalled htc drivers.
i think it seems that my computer is not recognising the phone as an android device, cos everytime i connect it, win7 seems to automatically install drivers (nd i cant stop that) and recognises it as HTC ANdroid Device (it appears as a "Disk Drive")..... tried to use htc sync, phone keeps searching nd it fails.. help please i cant use my phone

ive managed to install adb drivers but it only recognises phone when is turned on normally, but wen i go into fastboot or recovery, it doesnt show any adb devices....
do i hav 2 install drivers 4 each mode????? id pay sum1 2 do this 4 me.

try running another OS...
i had problems with mine as well on win7 32 bit... so i used winxp on vmware
and everything went smoothly...

make sure you get the HTC Sync 2.33 or you can use PDANET to install the drivers

Try booting to normal mode, then connect the device to the computer as a removable disk (or connect your sdcard to the computer with an sdcard to usb adapter)
After that, put on your sdcard the recovery update.zip found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=969076

after that, boot in recovery. press vol-up + power and choose "apply sdcard:update.zip"

Then you'll get a CWM recovery menu where you can install any ROM (should put the ROM on the sdcard ofcrouse), and that saves you from running step2.

Try using this one - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=TXYUQUOP
(it's 100% working)

About "E: cant open cache/recovery/command" ignore it

Are you sure step1 was finished successfully?
When you run it you need to make sure in the CMD window that there isn't any FAILED at the end

didn't understand your second sentence
