so your comment made me think this... we have a hero RUU right? and burried within that are the images for the hero...could we use the RUU but replace the images with our own?

A noob question ... can we flash the new HERO ROM to magic by pushing it directly without using the recovery image?

me too in the waiting ...
After purchasing htc magic in india, I too figured out that its SPL is the unfortunate one : HBOOT-1.33.0010 (SAPP10000) : Sapphire PVT 32A SHIP S-ON H : CPLD-12.

Though some options are available to install applications from:
1. http://slideme.org/applications
2. http://andappstore.com/AndroidApplications/apps/!index
3. http://www.openmarket.co.za/

But above are in no way comparable to Google apps,Market place.

Eagerly waiting for this SPL to be cracked .
