I was instructed to press back and power to boot in recovery mode. I pressed home and power, and there it is. Is that to say it's booting from the phone's recovery partition? Or is it still booting off the mem card?

If it's done, I'll attempt to flash a rom on there now, as I need not be so afraid of bricking my phone.

I'm using the htc magic (32a) which rom is the most stable with the least amount of bugs?

Caid.

for some reason, it says "waiting for device" and it sits there for 5+ mins doing nothing. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

You need to turn off your phone, and then hold the back button while pressing end/power to boot in fastboot mode.

Wait for a minute or two..
$adb shell mount -a
Ignore the failed mounts...
$adb push recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img /system/recovery.img
$adb push recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img /sdcard/recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img
$adb shell flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img
4. Reboot



I have just backup my rom. Can anyone explain what does these 3 command does in step 3?

$adb push recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img /system/recovery.img
$adb push recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img /sdcard/recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img
$adb shell flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img


Do i need to copy the recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img into my SDcard as well so that i can push in these file into the phone

This is great, thank you for enabling easy nandroid backups I've installed it successfully and used to it try out some of the hero ROMs. But alas, I always end up going back to my original stock Google Ion firmware since I have it setup how I like. I do have one question though:

Is there a simple way to root my phone (provide super user access?) without wiping my data? My understanding so far is that I would modify the boot.img to allow for root access on the phone.

What changes would I make, or is there a script that makes this easier? Thanks in advance! The tutorials are a little rough.

sherifone: If you have a Rogers HTC Magic, you can try the instructions here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=530527

If you've a TW HTC Magic (or most Asian builds I'd assume, since I managed to root my Singapore version), try the Hami Rooting instructions here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=531837

Read through the threads, someone will usually further clarify the instructions .

does this have a terminal in it that we can drop into to run commands (eg. replace system files) as cyanogens 1.3.1 does?

Also, i dont want to flash it permanently yet, is there a way to boot into it from terminal on the phone? eg. in terminal on G1 you type reboot recovery and it reboots into recovery....is there a command to direct the phone to boot up the recovery?

The recovery menu is only in English, I've not seen a multilingual one yet ^^
Maybe I'll implement one in the future, I think it's a cool idea
