Hello Everyone,

This is my first Driod device. I used to use a BB but my friend gave me an HTC Rogers magic and I figured I would give it a try. It does NOT have the 911 patch installed. I may by the Samsung Captive S when it comes out to Rogers and I figured I would try Andriod with this phone first. I have a couple of questions:

- When i try installing the 911 patch my phone disconnects from HTC sync for some reason. HTC sync finds the phone prior to the patch install but when i try installing the patch it give me an error msg asking me to check my usb cable. Any thoughts why? I am running windows 7 64bit.

-How hard is it to root the HTC Magic? I am not that good with programming code or anything like that. I was told i should upgrade to 2.1 but i need to root it first.

-any other helpful links or tips will be greatly appreciated.


Sorry i just wanted to add that my friend told me i may need to sign the Rogers HTC magic wavier before i root my phone or they will cut off my data. Anyone know if this is true.
Thanks

Not sure about the waiver but I would definitely load a different ROM than what Rogers ships by default.
On my Rogers Magic I've just loaded the Froyo Redux 1.7 mod which is based on CyanogenMOD 6.0 RC3. Works like a champ!

I recommend that you spend some time reading these forums a bit before jumping in. your patience will be rewarded!

Many rogers magic users have been through this before so its likely any question you have has already been answered.

good luck!
