Where to get roottools
I'm trying to follow this guide on my htc magic 32a / android 1.5 but am stumped by the very first step:

"Download and extract the contents of RootTools to C:\roottools."

Can someone please point me to a source for RootTools?

Thank you in advance,

Laurie

Using this spl will cut your ram in half and make the 3.5mm jack useless!
You can always revert back to stock spl when your done doing the "important" stuff :0)

So I have turned S-OFF via flashing hboot and now I would like to turn it back on. Unfortunately I did not see instructions to revert back on the original post. Do I just have to flash hboot again and it will turn S-ON?

Thanks for replying! I already flashed the original spl and was able to turn S-ON. But I appreciate you chiming in and getting back to me

Have come to my backup phone since my sensation has been stolen, I followed your method to a T, when I am in the universal app and hit root, it says
""Failed ! No ~~~ Fu goo ~~~ "

I've tried un/mounting the sd, made sure usb debug was on etc etc.. Any ideas?

Its android 2.2.1 and is asking me every other minute if I want the OTA... Lol its getting old, please help! Thanks

In the OP it states that this method will not work for 2.2.1...

Use http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682 to get root, then continue with the guide..

Try adding a trailing slash, so its /sdcard/

error writing recovery: No space left on device

I'm at a loss at this point. I didnt have a flash_image in /system/bin so I completed step 9 and and at this hurdle. I used the one click for root, not sure if that relevant.

Please advise

@Electic that recovery does not work for that phone. You need to use the RA-hero-v1.6.2 recovery.
