Hi all

Using instructions from here:

http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.ph...to_CyanogenMod

To downgrade my Vodafone UK 32B Magic from 1.6 to 1.5 but after trying to HBOOT with the SAPPIMG.nbh provided, it gets so far then fails saying 'Model ID Incorrect'.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

Yes I did. And just to be certain i've just done it again and I get the same error. It looks like it is doing it, then it says something like 'Checking signature' then the error comes up.

Do you put the sappimg.nbh in root of sdcard? Not in folder.

Yes, it finds the file. It is the only file on my SD card, not in a folder. It asks if I want to continue. Blue progress bar appears in the top right of the screen, it goes all the way (takes about 1-2 mins) then the message 'Model ID Incorrect' appears.

Hmmm. The reason I went to for http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.ph...to_CyanogenMod as a set of instructions is it was all on one page, looked fairly simple and it was recommended by someone with the same phone as me.

The other link looks complicated and I haven't got a clue what it does.

Maybe you need create a Goldcard, and the other link can help you make this.

I think. It´s a tip.

Anyone got any further on how to downgrade 1.6 to 1.5 on a Vodafone 32B Magic without using the Goldcard method?

I'm suffering the same problem, is this problem documented anywhere else and apart from the GoldCard method are there any other solutions?

Hey guys I'm new to this android hacking scene but I've finally managed to do it after doing near enough everything the wrong way lol


I am also using the vodafone 32b UK phone (well its my sisters really :P) and I also used the same 'CyanogenMod' guide to do what I wanted (root/custom roms at last!)

Before i go any further though... are you all wanting to downgrade to simply install custom roms etc.. or is it for different reasons?

If its for different reasons then I have no idea on how to downgrade but for the other thing then I can probably help you out! I won't waste my time typing it out yet though if its not what is needed..
