Probably, but not necessarily. Try the other method and if you get access denied error (you'll understand when you see it) then you'll have to try the gold card one.

It isn't necessary, but as the radio deals with the signal stations which the phone connects to it is recommended to have the latest one for the best signal. To be honest I have crap signal on any of the radio's so it doesn't change much for me but each experience is different.

Its loads the Bootloader and then just says "Waiting for bootloader", when it gets to 90, I get the USB 171 or USB 170 error message.
i then have to remove the battery and power the phone up again. I've tried 4 times now with the exact same problem
Have you tried a different USB port, or a different computer? Try googling the USB 171 and USB 170 errors (quoting the exact error message).
Edit: in fact read the above post.
