Rename Amon_Ra's Recovery Image to recovery.img.
Copy the recovery.img to the root of the SD card (NOT in any folders).
Disconnect the HTC Magic from the computer.
Open Android Telnet Client and type found here
flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery.img
Once the Amon_Ra's Recovery is finished installing, you will see # # on the screen below the line you've just typed.
Amon_Ra's Recovery should now be installed on the HTC Magic.
Won't connect to localhost with telnet no matter what I do, dunno why.
Running those commands through terminal gives flash_image: not found
with SU privileges, otherwise gives flash_image: permission denied
This all happened after I flashed a particular ROM, but it was a year ago, I don't remember which I flashed. Again, terminal tells me I have superuser permissions. I've made a goldcard, too, but I don't know if that matters.
found the ROM that caused this, a few other people had the same issue but no resolution was posted; http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1#post15748631
