Default HTC MAGIC original ROM running on TIM, unbranded A6161, Rogers, ... by daldroid

Hi all,
here you can find my modded recovery image and a rom based on the original rom for HTC magic (model A6161 sold in scandinavia).

BEWARE, it works on TIM Magic, recovery was tested on Original Unbranded Magic, but the rom has to be tested yet.
I modded it to grant root access from adb shell. It doesn't work unmodified on Vodafone Magic and other devices with modified SPL. SPL working for this ROM is .2008, Board is PVT 32A.

I've no time to provide a step-by-step guide right now. Sorry to be in a hurry.
You have to download the images, then:

- copy the signed zip file as update.zip into your sd card root
- fastboot the recovery image
- select nandroid backup from the menu (so you're going to dump your original ROM)
- select wipe data
- select apply update
- select reboot
- wait a long time for the first initialization.

I'm sorry for italian guys, it seems TIM sim customizes the phone for noverca. You'll have to change your apn settings, so during the wizard setup, press ignore when asked for google account setup. You'll configure it later.

DISCLAIMER: WARNING, you're going to format all of your data and the rom has not been tested for full functionality. Flashing unofficial roms ROMs will invalidate your warranty and you can make your device unusable. Do it at your own responsability. Non experienced users, please wait for for feedbacks by more experienced users.
Please post any comment in this thread.

TEMPORARY FIX to V1 ROM

Attached to this post and mirrored on:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NXIV2FIA

Enables multilanguage selection
Imports extended list of APNs
-------------------------------
1) Download the .zip file
2) Rename it to update.zip and transfer it to SD card
3) reboot in recovery mode (fastboot daldroid recovery if you didn't flash a modded recovery)
4) optionally select WIPE from the menu (I only had time to test with WIPE, as for initial setup. Maybe working without wiping too)
5) reboot
6) Make your initial setup. select "change language" to have the full list available
NOTE: No Chinese Input Method was ADDED (HTC_CIME). Search this thread for a way to install it if needed.

little help for italian TIM users

In this way you can backup your original TIM image
fastboot boot daldroid-recovery.img
magic reboots
- select nandroid backup from the menu (so you're going to dump your original ROM)

if you want to flash the new image i sugest you to wait the HERO image that Daldroid will prepare.

You are welcome.
When I have some more time, I would like to fill the first posts I reserved in this thread with info about confirmed working installation, etc.
Let's say any info (or link to already posted info) could be of help to other users of the community.

Counting on the help of users having successfully flashed these images to fill a small template about your model, original radio version, spl, kernel version, CPLD, board, etc. etc..
I'm asking this because we have to think that in the future other different models could be released and some new user could try to flash these images only because he bought an Original HTC (do you remember how many of us tried booting the vodafone Magic images with the only result to hang on splash screen?)
A detailed table of confirmed working phones could be of help to them.

Bye
