i was about to root a friends legend yesterday but also got stucked in step1-windows.bat, i succesfully downgraded to 1.31 and he has 2.1 instead of froyo now. But as i said, couldn´t get any further. Why is all the guides different, some guides you should open the RUU file in the computer, not in this guide. How do i know when to make that step or not

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
lost 2 full evenings with other guides and finally made it with this guide at the 1st try!!

Mistakes i did in the past (maybe that's why i didn't make it):
- SD Goldcard formatted FAT and not FAt32
- Working ADB.exe is in \platform-tools folder and no longer in \tools folder. So I extracted the 'hack for legend' in \platform-tool but in order to enable ADB.exe to load from any folder I added as Windows PATH folder also the \tool

also
- I run CMD with Admin rights in Windows7
- Had to run Visionary couple of times
- had to run point 12 couple of times

    Is the procedure for rooting H-BOOT 1.01 the same as 1.00 then? Is it the same as my guide? (www.chirag.co.uk)

    I don't understand what u mean by that. Sry:eek:

    just open your command prompt then do the following


    on the command prompt..

    CD C:\AndroidSDK\platform-tools\
    adb shell
    su

    then something will pop up on your phone, just click on "accept"

    go back to the command prompt then type

    /data/local/flash_image misc /data/local/misc1-2.img'

    then press enter.. see screenshot for reference ;)
