Hello all

Had a crack at trying to root my legend about 4 months ago. Got stuck at crackin.bat and gave up.

But I think it's time. I've got Froyo 2.2 with HBOOT 1.01, are there some specific instructions for my device that won't confuse me

And I love HTC Sense too much to go with plain Cyanogenmod, is there any ICS based roms with sense? Something like how the HTC One V looks?

in the meantime htc has provided an official way to unlock the legend's bootloader - you can just follow the instructions here: http://htcdev.com/bootloader/ or have a lokk into the corresponding forum thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1498298

the development of ics for our legend is still in the early stages, so at the moment you certainly won't find a rom which bundles ics & sense. however in the development section there are gingerbread based roms, that come with sense...

There are quite a few ways to roots your legend now since Boot unlocker has been released for the Legend.

1. Downgrade and etc.: Never used this method but it was the first guide I read and it confused the heck out of me.

2. HBOOT 1.01 root: The way I used to unlock my HTC Legend very easy and comprehensive guide in this forum, CHECK IT OUT HERE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1223950

3. HBOOT unlocker (Haven't used this guide before)

From the title of your thread I sense that you had trouble downgrading. No problems! Just use the 2nd or 3rd method listed above, the first guide was only used because the Legend still had eclair and the 2nd or 3rd method wasn;t released yet.

ICS rom is still in Beta version but can be used (Nearly fully functioning ). Check it out here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1562595

Best of luck!

Many of the links to the required programs/files in that guide no longer work.

I pretty much rooted mine the way it's described in the first post here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1596635

Look in the Legend Android Development for ROM's with Sense

If you need further help, don't hesitate to ask

Wow that's exciting. Didn't know that HTC released their own method.

I go to the site and click Begin Unlocking Bootloader but nothing happens

I used ogo2's gingerbread rom for quite a while, never saw that issue. If you look through the thread in the dev section for the rom, I have seen others with this issue too, but I don't know the cause or solution.
