Thumbs up Root your Rogers's Magic !!!

Only apply if you have a stock Roger's Magic without root!

The following procedure flashes the stock Roger's boot image with root access enabled to your Roger's Magic :

1. Copy this update to your SD-card.
2. Download RAv1.0's rooted recovery here.
3. Boot the device in fastboot mode.
4. Connect the device to your machine over USB.
5. $fastboot boot recovery-RAv1.0H.img
wait a few minutes and unplug your device from USB
6. Choose option "Apply sdcard:update.zip" from the menu

If the flashing doesn't work you might need to flash this SPL update from your sd-card after fast booting with recovery-RAv1.0H.img

If you want to have a rooted recovery as well, you can check out this post.

Enjoy

Special thanks to :
Haykuro for all his help ^^ , buy him a Nesquik!
JesusFreke for his JFv1.43's recovery

It works! Woot Root!

1. I don't think the kernel inside the recovery image would work on the dream.
2. The boot image inside the update is from the Magic, not from the dream.

There's no harm in trying to fastboot the recovery image... but I don't think it will work. Let us know if it would!
