Last week, my colleagues and I received free HTC Magic/Sapphire/ION devices from Google for attending their developer event in Yokohama. I'm currently using it on the NTT DoCoMo network, and my colleague is using it with SoftBank here in Japan. The devices are very nice

I noticed that the hboot displayed on my device is 1.33.3005. Has anyone seen this version before? From reading the posts here, it seems newer than what others have. It seems quite locked down, for example I cannot flash unsigned roms or replace the splash image.

I successfully loaded Haykuro's latest signed HTC-flavor rom on the device, and it runs quite well (he did a nice job!). However, I was wondering if there is any other SPL available I could flash on the device to try unsigned roms or to try flashing the partitions directly?

Also, if anyone is interested in getting Japanese keyboard support on their device, I may be able to extract the Japanese IME keyboard from here

Best Regards,
J. Maurice

EDIT: Entire Japan OS nandroid dump

Let me double-check. The correct way to dump my ROM as I guess from reading these forums is:

1) Use fastboot to load recovery.img
2) Run a nandroid backup - I assume this will copy OS as well as data?
3) Make an archives of the files saved in /tmp/nandroid/

Is this correct?

Here is one of the devices running the HTC image:
