The following instructions :
  • will void all warranties of your phone!
  • will erase all your userdata!
  • will change your current ROM/SPL!
  • will change your current splash screen!
  • could brick your phone!

Proceed at your own risk!


The "trick" in fixing a perfected SPL is to fastboot a goldcard which contains a sappimg.nbh/zip that has :
  • an non-perfected SPL (preferably an engineerings SPL).
  • a ROM with a version that is HIGHER than your current ROM version.

Steps
  1. Create a Goldcard.
  2. Copy the required sappimg.nbh/zip to the Goldcard.
  3. Boot your phone while holding the VOLUME-DOWN key.
  4. Press the ACTION KEY (=trackball) to start the update.
  5. Wait until the update completes and press the ACTION KEY (=trackball) to reboot your phone.
  6. (Upgrade to the rooted ROM of your choice).

NBH/ZIP
  • ROM v2.53.707.2 (Engineerings SPL v1.33.2010) - MD5 : F9674D19BE5F949D0D9DC99714D210E3
  • ROM v2.16.707.3 (NON-Perfected stock SPL v1.33.0009) - MD5 : DC391E4A3FC57861D7197C151176ED96
  • ROM v2.16.151.1 (NON-Perfected stock SPL v1.33.0009) - MD5 : ADA4924293EFF619B05BB397446F862D

Amon_RA:

i successfully created a goldcard and i flashed my MyTouch too, but i kept getting "failed" when i tried to fastboot the recovery image. This was using the original sappimg.zip provided in the 'how-to' instructions.

Should i retry with one of the higher NBH/ZIPs?

Try it with a normal SD card, if that one picks up the sappimg.zip it means that your goldcard is corrupted/bad.

this is great!

Glad I waited now for a better method for doing this. I almost did the goldcard with the other rom that was originally posted. This way I get a new ROM with no issues I can see. Much better solution. Thanks everyone. Today I buy the sd cards and a card reader here in Chennai and go play with the solution and new rom I've chosen. I have a second magic phone that was bought for me I flashed earlier with a Hero rom and I really like it. The first phone was bought by my company for use; but after seeing what was not on it, was really disappointed with Airtel.

Thanks everyone! This is the solution worth waiting for.

Man why does all custom roms get stuck at loading screen ?. I tried using RAv1.2.0 in Fastboot mode(without actually flashing it to phone) and then i use the "update from zip" option from it to load the new custom rom. it completes installation. Reboots. And then it gets stuck at second HTC Android Logo!!! tried two Roms

Amon Ra's RAv1.1.0H-signed-update
JACxHERO variant Hero ROM

What am i doing wrong? Is there a proper tutorial for flash rom properly. Do i need to flash my SPL to Engineering-SPL-HBOOT-1.33.2005-signed ?

Got it all done

The whole goldcard thing took me a few tries. Discovered that the sandisk that shipped with my Airtel India Magic would not work so got a few new cards and a card reader. I had to redo the goldcard a few times and I had gotten the whole cid thing wrong somehow so I redid that and got a new goldcard.img. I had to be a bit patient holding down the action key also.

Finally, was able to apply the non perfected engineering over the airtel and then this very nice rom:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=538645

Very nice seeing the Android in Blue letters when I rebooted the phone, having root on the phone, etc. Seeing the Android Market on the phone for the first time makes it all nicer. I'm glad I waited to get a way that allows me to try different stuff. Thanks everyone.

BTW, did all this on Ubuntu Linux. Only windows involved was the QMAT program running in Wine. Yay!

    Hi all! I need some help...

    After having some problems with my HTC Magic (Google) concerning FC's and UID's (BananaBread and CronMod ROM's) I decided to change my recovery (ClockWorkMod 2.5.0.7). I flashed AmonRA's recovery. After that, I couldn't install any ROM. So I decided to root again my phone.

    When I root my phone, it says

    SAPPHIRE PVT 32B ENG S-OFF H
    HBOOT-1.33.2004 (SAPP100000)
    CPLD-10
    RADIO-2.22.27.08


    (Having flashed RA-Magic-1.2.3G recovery).

    At this point I can flash CM6.

    But when I flash hboot 1.33.0013d in order to install ROMs like CronMod 1.0.5, my phone says:
    "SAPPHIRE PVT 32B SHIP S-ON G" (Now I see a "G" instead of a "H"... :S)
    ... and after installing *any* ROM my phone gets stuck at splash screen.

    I think it's -maybe- a problem concerning recovery and/or the hboot flashed.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    the 1.33.0013d hboot is a hacked s-on hboot the g is because the hboot is for google branded devices and the h is for htc branded devices.

    i uploaded a 2708 package i will link you it extract it and place the files in your fastboot directory then follow the instructions in it and if you use my rom (cronmod) with d2ext do not use a custom mtd
