Default [Q] need help flashing new rom for HBOOT 0.43.0003

a friend gave me his legend so i can update it to a better rom
i'm planing on CM7.2 KANG build

the phone is stock, from local operator...
S-ON
HBOOT: 0.43.0003
RADIO: 7.08.35.21
FW: 2.1-update1
baseband: 47.39.35.09U_7.08.35.21
build: 2.05.461.52 CL218650

i know that i can SOFF it via a tool HTC has released but i also know that i don't really need it and i can use CM even with C-ON (am i right?)

most root guides i see are for 1.01 and not 0.43 so i prefer asking then killing the phone

You don't want to unlock the bootloader with HTC's tool! You can flash the Alpharev bootloader! That one allows everything, even downgrading.
REMEMBER: ROOTING WILL VOID WARRANTY AND YOU ACCEPT FULL RESPONSEBILITY!!


To root if you have S-OFF:

- First download any rooted rom (eg the 7.2 KANG rom) and CWM recovery (You want the S-OFF .img file): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1290841 Put the rooted ROM on your SD card. You'l need the recovery later.

- Download fastboot (I uploaded it for you to make it easier: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/33521967/fastboot.exe) Then put fastboot in a folder. Also put the CWM recovery image in the same folder as fastboot.exe. Then do Shift + Right click on the folder and chose "open command prompt here" then do
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-legend.img

Now turn of your phone then press volume down + power at the same time. Navigate to recovery using the volume buttons. Then press the power button. Now the phone should boot in Clockworkmod recovery.

Now you can use the trackball of your phone to scroll down to install zip from SD card en click on the trackball to choose that option. Now select choose zip from SD card. Now you'll see the contents of your SD card. Scroll down the .zip file of the rooted ROM you downloaded and click on the trackball again. Now choose Yes - Install ............. (WARNING THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING ON THE PHONE!) after a succesfull install of the ROM you have a rooted device!

If you don't want S-OFF you can use that guide the unlocker. And if you use the S-ON CWM then you use FakeFlash, You have to rename the CWM zip package to update.zip, boot up in recovery, then select update.zip, you'll get CWM recovery.

But if you want S-OFF, what problems do you have with Alpharev? With S-OFF it's way easier, you don't need to downgrade ur ROM, you can just flash anything, like I said in my previous post.

A really great rom is the one for YOUR phone and not one for HTC legend. hahaha you need to pay attention and look at what your doing or you'll end up bricking your phone
