U need to thank Orange_24 for this..
It took me a WHILE (3 hours of seaching intense) to find out how to root the 1.76.0009 so i thought i would make a new thread to help people .. but i found it deep in a forum in here
Engineer's SPL 1.76.0007
THIS METHOD WILL DELETE ALL DATA ON YOUR PHONE! Proceed at your own risk!
1. Download RUU linked above.
2. Install update using RUU.
3. Turn on phone and connect to computer.
4. Get RA recovery and SPL also linked above and drop them to sdcard root directory.
5. Run SDK: adb shell
6. Install recovery: flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-hero-v1.6.2.img
6. Turn off phone and turn on again holding Power+Home. RA Recovery should appear.
7. Flash zip from sdcard.
8. Use file: update-hboot-1762007-signed
9. Done. PSPL broken.
10. Build a shrine for orange_24
I did this to mine and it worked ..
Bowing before the community
since many people have problems with windows 7 an windows 7 x64 i will thank the LayZeeDK for writing this so i dont have to ..
First install HTC Sync. Then try these drivers: http://www.multiupload.com/RJRAYM75A2
Start > Devices and Printers > Right click 'Android Phone' > Properties > Click 'Hardware' tab > Press the one with 'Disk drives' type > Properties > Update Driver... > Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer > Have Disk... > Pres 'Browse...' > Browse to the drivers in the folder 'Vista_x64' to which I linked above e.g. 'C:\Users\Lars\Desktop\Vista_x64' > OK > Choose 'My HTC' or whatever it shows
Seems that the drivers in Vista_x64 worked for USB/Sync/RUU connection and the drivers in USB_MODEM_VISTA works for ADB connection. ADB is changed through Device Manager (Right Click 'Computer' > Manage > Device Manager).
mbk.2k3 wrote this so all credit goes to him! ..
to help the rogers folks: i had updated using the official Rogers update and thought i was stuck with the perfected SPL
I used the following method to get back my root (http://rootyourmagic32a.blogspot.com...htc-magic.html).
follow every step carefully.
then i downgraded radio and got an engineering SPL on using the following method (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=605239)
i used adb shell heavily. it was daunting at first but once i got into it, it was smooth sailing and you build your confidence quickly (good for noobs like us)
