Something to try if you're stuck with 1.76.0007 SPL... There is no harm in trying. If it works, great! If not, then you're no worse off...
Make sure your radio version is 6.35.07.29 by entering FASTBOOT mode. (Back + Power). If it's not 6.35.07.29, don't continue.

Download this update and save to your SD as update.zip
http://content.modaco.net/hero/updat...007-signed.zip
Boot your phone into HTC recovery mode using Home and Power.
Press Home and End to bring up the recovery console.
Choose the option to "Apply sdcard:update.zip"

If this is successful, it will apply the update then bring you back into the recovery mode. Turn off your phone, then boot into FASTBOOT using Back and Power. See if your HBOOT version is now 1.76.2007.

We might be on to something here...

This seems to be what's happening when people try this...

Code:
E:No signature (5 files)
E:Verification failed
Installation aborted
That means that the Engineering SPL can't be flashed over the stock SPL.

Oh well, it was worth a shot.

Does anyone else have any ideas?

Dude nice one but what's the success rate? I'm willing to try this **** but i need more input from you, like has anyone successfully flashed it and in case it bricks my phone and it prolly will, can i overwrite it with an official Sense TW/HK/SG RUU and will it bring my Magic back from the dead?

EDIT: Got ya. Looks like it is still work in progress...

Guru, what's about thing to replace HBoot to Eng HBoot in rom.zip while RUU wait to get processed ?

It's so crazy, but ... why not?

I'm gonna compare by Hex-editor original Hero Hboot, Eng hero Hboot and original magic Hboot...

Update at 14:29 (GMT +3)

Good news:
Hboot from RUU_Sapphire_HTC_Asia_WWE_3.03.728.4 (Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam)
Hboot from RUU_Hero_HTC_WWE_2.73.405.38_WWE_release_signed_No Driver
HBoot from RUU_Hero_HTC_WWE_2.73.405.61_WWE_test_signed_NoDri ver
are absolutely same
Checksum MD-5: 6EC7F3AF2C832B38EEECE0FD7FB66CDA

Bad news:
Eng Hboot from Modaco is quite different than stock HBoots
So it is NOT a hex-patch. It is fully engineering Hboot.

As there is one new eng Hboot for Hero, so a new one HBoot for Magic exists... but where?)

Nice anyway , if some one wants to have the new radio and be able to flash the new sense using fastboot maybe it should work to flash hboot with HBoot from RUU_Hero_HTC_WWE_2.73.405.61_WWE_test_signed_NoDri ver and then flash the new radio and go on with flashing the rest...

The NEW ENG.SPL is not useful unless we get it in form of a signed sappimg.zip , here comes the big question Do Modaco has the new hero SPL in a signed by htc sappimg.zip ? if he has it then we are all set

Rom.zip is signed, when you change it the sign validation will fail.

The whole point to running a 1.76 ENG HBOOT is to be able to run Hero ROMs and the new Sapphire 32A Sense ROMs without modifying them to the current 1.33 HBOOT partition table. And I'm quite sure that the 6.35 radio doesn't run well with a 1.33 HBOOT.

The HBOOT defines the partitioning of the NAND and the new Sense ROMs can't be flashed onto the partition table defined by a 1.33 HBOOT.

I'm one of the people who would really rather not use their SD card for apps or cache storage.
But yeah, that does work when necessary.
