Flashed 32B on 32A HTC Magic

So I have bought a HTC Magic in Singapore about a year ago.

Some of the information about my phone before it got stucked in HTC Magic power-on screen:
SAPPHIRE PVT 32A SHIP S-ON A
HBOOT-1.33.0007 (SAPP10000)
CPLD-12
RADIO-6.35.07.29
Aug 4 2009,19:43:30

I found a site that helped me to get my phone rooted as follow:
SAPPHIRE PVT 32A ENG S-OFF H
HBOOT-1.76.2007 (SAPP10000)
CPLD-12
RADIO-6.35.08.29
Aug 21 2009,18:19:15

Soon after, I started searching for new ROM elsewhere and managed to update my SPL to 1.33.2007 and that's where problem starts to occur..

My phone get stucked on HTC Magic screen display forever.

I was eager to get this problem solved and have not done enough research before I got myself in a worse situation with the phone hbooted like this:
SAPPHIRE UNKNOWN 32A SHIP S-ON G
HBOOT-1.33.0006 (SAPP10000)
CPLD-12
RADIO-2.22.19.26I
May 27 2009,19:06:41

Now I can only enter hboot and fastboot.

Can somebody help me to at least get back to my original ROM? I don't wanna root my phone ever again..

Help please~

If you can get into fastboot you're fine. Just flash 32A radio/spl again and then the desired ROM. Old radio/spl - 1.33.X/3.22.X New radio/spl 1.76.X/6.35.

yeah when turning on the phone hold home and power, if you get the recovery menu then you got nothing to worry about, just flash the proper rom and all will be fine, there is even a stock htc rom with root around here.
right here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=622038

but you dont have to go back to stock, you just need to put on a rom that fits your phone. i personally suggest this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=654284

so good luck post back when you get it figured out

Thank you Reziukas and sike89 for the reply..

I will try the ROM recommended in the links. =)

I cannot get into recovery (-Home- & -Power-) now due to the perfected SPL (1.33.0006).

And whenever I use the goldcard method that flooded over the internet, I always get this "Main version is older!" failure message.

I think I have made the goldcard correctly cause it worked while I was trying to flash my 1.76.0007 SPL to 1.76.2007.

Any idea?

I did but after I flashed RADIO-2.22.19.26I with SPL 1.33.0006 I can't get into this recovery mode anymore.

When I press Home and Power, it starts booting but stucked on HTC Magic screen forever..

Easily said it, I can only enter hboot (vol down and power) and fastboot (back and power) now..

Procedure
1.Turn your phone off. Turn it on by holding Back and Power, or Vol. down and Power. Either way, boot into the bootloader.
You should see the three Androids on skateboards, and the menu title should say "Fastboot".
2.Connect your device to the computer. The display on your phone should now say "Fastboot USB".
3.Open up the shell/terminal on your computer, and type
fastboot devices [enter]Your device should be listed with it's serial number, and should say "fastboot".
4.Change directory to where you have saved your recovery image. I.e. type "cd /path/to/recovery.img in windows prompt, press enter.
5.You may issue a "dir" command (Windows) or "ls" (Unix/Linux) to make sure you are at the right directory, or just skip this step.
6.Type
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img


Check your phone's display, as recovery is being sent and flashed to your device.

Check your command prompt/shell to make sure the process is over.


i got all that from Binary100100 who got it from here http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php/RE-recovery-img

give that a shot

also maybe this might help

I seem like I cannot use the fastboot command in 1.33.0006 SPL??

Whenever I type a fastboot command and press enter, I always get an error message.
>> ... FAILED (remote: not allow)

Do we have any windows application that can help to bypass all checking on the phone stats and proceeds with fastboot flash directly?

No need for phone?

Hello there.
I was reading this thread and I'm having a similar problem.
I have a question, sike89.
Is it possible to create the goldcard just with the software you mentioned?
My magic 32a will only go into fastboot (stuck at splash screen) and so
I won't be able to use my phone to create the card.
Thanks!

As mentioned by YamatoDelgato, I cannot boot up my phone and thus far I am unable to re-create a goldcard.

But this "goldcard" I am using right now was a working goldcard and I am surprised that it doesn't work all the times..

By the way, I found an alternative on internet saying that you can use other HTC Magic phone to create a goldcard for your phone; Although I am not sure if its gonna work out, just give it a shot..

Sike89, am I right to say that this application does not require any HTC phone in order to create a goldcard?

I can just format my SD card using PC and input the necessary information into the application to create goldcard, is it true?

Problem Solved...with a Sacrifice.

Well I managed to get my phone booting again.
I have a rogers phone so I used their "mandatory"
update (2 sappimgs) to get my phone working again.
However, this resulted in getting the dreaded
SPL 1.76.0010 meaning I can't root it easily.
However, I know that with a working
phone that I now have, I could use it to obtain
a gold card.
Boy that was scary!
I'm so scared to try rooting again but I probably will hehe :D!
Thanks to xda community and google search!

I lost my original nandroid backup but did manage to install an original ROM on my 32B (Vodafone). Took some work but it worked :) Afterwards I wrote a tutorial about it (google How to restore your custom ROMed HTC Magic (Vodafone 32B) – a walk through, I can't post links yet).
