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