1. I installed ADW launcher EX and
2. Got Market to work, thanks to following post
The apps can be downloaded. It gives error everytime, but press RETRY a couple of times and you will be able to install the app.
I downloaded the Dropbox
and installed many apps from there. The apps which are not supported in the above MARKET (its old version of market), failed to open (like Glow Hockey Pro failed but Air Hockey was installed successfully).
Apparently this device is HTC MAGIC or HERO. The android vrsion running is 2.3.4 but all the wallpapers are from 1.5. It doesnt support Flash, and doesnt allow advanced apps to run.
Also I tried to update MARKET but it failed to install.
3. I entered Android Initial Setup mode, finger pressed the Android logo but it didnt go further.
4. I tried to root it with GingerBreak, but dont know how to reboot.
