ok, i did look at the thread, and someone has come across this before, but i have the remote: 42 custom id check fail error. I've got the newest update (the one that caused problems with wifi for unbranded orange desire). i created a new goldcard (using goldcardtool - much easier, and seems to work better; cant get the manual goldcard method...human error somewhere)
I've placed the goldcard in, and done the steps for the tinycore linux in a VM...the other method was taking FOREVER to download and kept freezing at about 11-14%.
I make the directories, mount the */cdroms, all in sudo, and then change to the correct directory. I run the ./step1.sh and it erases cache.
it writes the file, checks all the files, but gets to INFOchecking custom ID, hangs for a while, then bam!
FAIL = (remote:42 custom ID check fail)
the phone does reboot off the bootloader, and chills on the HTC loading screen, and then sends back to bootloader, then auto-retries again.
I try to run step2, and then error:device not found. i follow the commands on screen, but too many fails. Is this a goldcard issue?
Am I to format the SDcard, then place into my phone, remove and patch? (i'm using a previous goldcard img from the last successful goldcard)
Should i just take 3 steps backwards and start fresh?
