I've created a new ROM for the HoFo/Rogers community in the hope that others will help improve it. All of the other ROM's that I have tried had missing features or they were a bit buggy and power hungry just because they weren't made for the specific Rogers Magic. This ROM is based on the orginal Rogers ROM, so everything works and it is stable. Enjoy!

N.B. - If you get an error during an update please upgrade to the 2005 SPL: http://code.google.com/p/sapphire-port-dream/

Thanks to lifeflayer we have a great server for hosting the ROM's.

You have to wipe if you are coming in from a different ROM, not if you are updating the HoFo ROM.

To use the adb console in version 2.0 +, please update to the latest SDK.

To improve your battery life, go into Settings --> Wireless controls --> Mobile networks --> uncheck 'Enable always-on mobile'

It is recommended that you use Amon_RA's recovery image to update this ROM: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=530492

If you are a non-English locale user, you will need to also run this keyboard update after the HoFo update:

HoFo Kernel

File contains wlan.ko, boot.img-kernel and config.
This kernel is a modification of cyanogen's kernel with TigerTael's V3 patch applied to it.

N.B. - To get the config's working with Donut, you have to enable video4linux.

V7 - http://www.4shared.com/file/138117137/a19e932c/HoFo-V7tar.html

V6 - http://www.4shared.com/file/136914156/2e1a52e2/HoFo-V6tar.html

V5 - http://www.4shared.com/file/135700242/8bcadce9/HoFo-V5tar.html

V4 - http://www.4shared.com/file/135574805/cdfe3d4/HoFo-V4tar.html

V3 - http://www.4shared.com/file/135233769/2d3de185/HoFo-V3tar.html

V2 - http://www.4shared.com/file/135004617/13b9d310/HoFo-V2tar.html

V1 - http://www.4shared.com/file/134706415/ef4895d5/HoFo-V1tar.html (only one that will work with a Hero ROM)

If you have any ideas about optimizing it any further, please let me know.

Developer

This update is for developer's who need access to the debugging infromation. The update contains an udpated boot.img and wlan.ko.

V6 kernel: http://hotweiss.lifeflayer.com/roms/HoFo-V6-dev.zip

I don't think you need the new SPL to flash this ROM; I have the new one. Vanilla dry basically means that I didn't mod the core of the system at all (minus the normoclocking), I just added features.

PS-normoclocking, because 528 is the native CPU speed

Not sure if its due to the changing of the keyboard, but I noticed that the calibration tool doesn't work . Always crashes. Good ROM, thanks.

hey hotweiss, i really want to use your ROM so I can get rid of all the rogers icons on my magic

but im having a hard time combining bits and pieces of each one's instructions together.

so I've downloaded your update.zip

do i just follow these instructions
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=4036421&postcount=52
and boot into recovery mode?

how would I do step 8 here, if I dont have the "fastboot boot recovery-RAv1.0H.img" from you?
or can I just use the one from skittleguy as well?

so when i'm done, do I just click "reboot system now"??

or, would I have to follow skittleguy's other post on hofo, and do these steps again, after i've applied the update?:
5. power off phone, hold back button and power to boot into fastboot again
6. fastboot flash boot boot.img
7. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
8. fastboot reboot


TIA, hope I can have some success with your rom!

TIA, hope I can have some success with your rom!

I would use this recovery image here:

http://rapidshare.com/files/252267998/recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img

It's the latest version.

As far as insalling the ROM, just follow these steps:

1) boot into fastboot mode (back and end)

2) fastboot boot recovery-RAv1.1.1H.img

3) run the update process

That's it.
