Yes this could be the case, that's why I suggest (see Daredevil-part to update to a 32B radio (and after a 32B recovery) after the flashing of the SPL, just like Haykuro posted

I'm a bit afraid of flashing the radio at the moment, I don't want people to have a bricked MyTouch 3G.
I would appreciate it if someone could try to flash a 32B radio (preferably the ION radio) and use a 32B recovery to flash an 32B ROM after. If this goes ok I can update this thread.

Waiting for device means that fastboot can't find your device over USB... It could be that you need to reinstall your drivers because your PC will find a new board 32A instead of 32B.

When trying to create Gold Card I downloaded the Terminal Emulator and I cannot create a Gold Card.

After inputing:

cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid

I get:

cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid: not found

What am I doing wrong?

I think you should try to use adb shell instead...
Make sure the SDcard you're trying to make is a plain SD (without partitions), and formatted FAT32.

Does the same happens when you try a normal SDcard with SAPPIMG.zip on it?
