I'm abandoning this thread, since there are now too many ports to keep track of, so don't expect any updates. Just make sure that any rom you flash on your phone is 32A compatible. These roms all have modified boot.img, wlan.ko, apnconfig.xml, and possibly some other tweaks to sweeten the pot.

Rogers Original Wiped Rom
This is the stock Rogers rom in Nandroid format, unrooted. Use this if you really fowl something up and need to restore to the phones base (read: unrooted) settings. Note that this is a Nandroid backup, so restore it as such.

I tried loading the stock rogers rom last night, didnt seem to work, told me it was unsigned, or do i need to push each one of the files individually.

And also when trying to load the HOfo community rom downloaded from both of the links posted here it told me that one of the files was corrupted. can't think of the file off the top of my head, sorry.

EDIT: sorry i dont have the engineering spl

Thanks for this thread.

Could I flash any of these ROMS with just my rooted device or do I need to flash an SPL or something first?

Edit: nevermind, noticed the hofo link at the bottom of your post...

I look forward to seeing if any of the users here report happy findings!

SKITTLES Quick Question

By the way Skittles,

Do we HAVE to flash the SPL in order to use other roms? I heard SPL/Radio switching is the big danger. Can I install the hero rom just without flashing the SPL?

I believe you should be able to flash this to a Rogers Magic without changing your SPL, but changing your SPL makes it possible to make and restore Nandroid backups (which helps like crazy) so I would still recommend it.

I have made a nandroid backup already using the daldroid-recovery.img and the fastboot process. As far as I know I did this stuff without making any changes to my device. A raw backup through fastboot.

However, would I be unable to flash back the boot.img, recovery.img, and system.img using this same daldroid-recovery.img fastboot process?

What is the difference between what I am describing and actually changing or flashing the SPL version.

I just want to do this safely and be able to restore to factory (or stock) version of phone for warranty purposes.

Thanks skittles,

You rock,

You technically could by using the Amon_RA's new recovery (it has the option for Nandroid restore). I have yet to try it with the stock SPL, but you probably could.

Typically, restoring a rom backup is done through fastboot, which is why you need an engineering SPL which won't signature check.

Well I would prefer to stick to things the way you have done them already. I appreciate you trying everything first, of course.

So Do you recommend I just go with your guides. They are entirely reversible down to the bootloader?
