Default [Abandoned] Rogers Rom Repository (A Collection of Outdated Rogers/32A Ports)

I'm abandoning this thread, since there are now too many ports to keep track of, so don't expect any updates. Just make sure that any rom you flash on your phone is 32A compatible. These roms all have modified boot.img, wlan.ko, apnconfig.xml, and possibly some other tweaks to sweeten the pot.

Rogers Original Wiped Rom
This is the stock Rogers rom in Nandroid format, unrooted. Use this if you really fowl something up and need to restore to the phones base (read: unrooted) settings. Note that this is a Nandroid backup, so restore it as such.
You can get it here:

Latest Version: 1.09
This is the stock Rogers rom, rooted and optimized by hotweiss of HowardForums.com. This is meant for people who like the original Rogers feel but want all the work done for them.

HTC Hero ROM for Magic by Fatal1ty

Credits for the roms go to the original chefs. If you like their roms give them money!

If you are a Rogers user, than this thread might be able to help with any questions you might have regarding rooting, flashing, or restoring your roms:

For kicks, here's all the Rogers, MyTouch, and Hero wallpapers:

I think it might be worthwile to add in your list the ROM's modded by redglass. I've found them to work much better on my phone (32A Australia) as compared to the mod found on the Fatal1ty thread.

I tried loading the stock rogers rom last night, didnt seem to work, told me it was unsigned, or do i need to push each one of the files individually.

And also when trying to load the HOfo community rom downloaded from both of the links posted here it told me that one of the files was corrupted. can't think of the file off the top of my head, sorry.

EDIT: sorry i dont have the engineering spl

Thanks for this thread.

Could I flash any of these ROMS with just my rooted device or do I need to flash an SPL or something first?

Edit: nevermind, noticed the hofo link at the bottom of your post...

Default SKITTLES Quick Question

By the way Skittles,

Do we HAVE to flash the SPL in order to use other roms? I heard SPL/Radio switching is the big danger. Can I install the hero rom just without flashing the SPL?
