07/02 v1.2[C] embedded with lib files needed to run HTC_CIME by richyyun
http://www.4shared.com/file/115470968/23ed1157/v12-cime-signed.html
This version (v1.2[c]) of rom is suitable for users who need to input Chinese on magic using methods other than handwriting.
After flashing this rom, be sure to install HTC_CIME.apk manually.
All the Chinese input methods, including Zhuyin and Pinyin, work on this rom!! Hooray!!
However, all the ringtones, except Innovation.mp3, have been removed to squeeze out some space for these lib files.
You have to push your favorite ringtone by yourself.
Here is a backup of the original ringtones and alarms

********7/6 Hami Rooting (Rooting OEM TW Cupcake ROM)***********
Running modded Hero and ION roms on Magic is cool, but some compromises must be made, such as manual input of APN, injection of libs,...
For those already satisfied with the oem rom (TW HTC ROM with Hami boot logo), I have created a new boot.img.
This boot.img is rooted and sets the max cpu freq at 528Mhz. After flashing it, you can also get a root access at adb shell.
You can further push a modded version of su into the system to gain root access at terminal app.

Before you begin, please make sure:
(1) Your magic is running TW OEM ROM (Cupcake 1.5) with Hami boot logo
(2) SPL has been flashed

Steps are:
1. Download this package created by richyyun first. http://www.4shared.com/file/116302268/1b7cc008/richyyun-hami-rooting.html
2. Inside the zip are two files, including boot-hami-rooted-max528.img and su
3. In fastboot mode, test run the new rooted boot.img **Very important**
=> fastboot boot boot-hami-rooted-max528.img
4. If it successfully boots, you can begin to flash it
=> fastboot flash boot boot-hami-rooted-max528.img
5. Reboot and you'll get # in adb shell
6. Push modded su into the system
=> adb shell
#mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
#exit
=> adb push su /system/bin/su
=> adb shell
# cd /system/bin
# chmod 6755 su
# sync
# reboot




********7/4 New BOOT.IMG for Hero********************************
The frequency of the CPU inside magic is self-adjusted according to real-time processing demand.
However, there is a parameter in rom defining the range (max and min) of cpu frequency adjustment.
In OEM roms, the max freq is set at only 384Mhz.

In the following two versions of boot.img, the cpu freq range is redefined.
[max=528Mhz] http://www.4shared.com/file/115500341/1cec4112/boot-cpu-max528.html by richyyun
[min=max=528Mhz] http://www.4shared.com/file/115939851/44c86a93/boot-cpu-always528.html by richyyun
Note that when min=max=528Mhz, you battery doubtedly drains slightly faster!

For the moment, if you are already satisfied with the current rom and don't want to flash new roms so soon, you can flash this boot.img alone to make some changes to your magic!

1. on your pc, you can test run the new boot image first
fastboot boot boot-cpu-freq-fixed-for-32A-12.img <=be sure to test it first!
2. if it works, then make it permanent
fastboot flash boot boot-cpu-freq-fixed-for-32A-12.img




********ION for TW MAGIC users (based on nk02's first release of ION rom)********
07/04 ION-V2[C] http://www.4shared.com/file/115896084/56906abb/nk02-v2c-r1-signed.html
HTC_CIME and libs it requires are built in. Manual injection of libs is NO LONGER NEEDED! ##刷完馬上就可以輸入中文##
Lite, smooth, and rooted. Screenshots are shown in page 9

06/27 FULL rev1 http://www.4shared.com/file/114847653/9f8c5587/nk02-4-full-for-TW-rev1.html recommended
06/27 LITE http://www.4shared.com/file/1150789...Hero-Full_v1-Rogers-signed-modded_for_TW.html
1. wlan.ko and libpdfviewer.so have been pushed into the rom
2. original magic ringtones are copied into this rom (i like "Innovation.ogg"), so G1 and G2 ringtones are all put together.

All the files needed to make this possible are included in the file packge...
--- steps in grey color are no longer needed in rev1 of update.zip
1. adb push update.zip /sdcard/update.zip
2. fastboot boot recovery-RAv1.img
3. Run nandroid to backup your entire phone ***very important***
4. wipe the system
5. apply the update

after successfully booted,
6. on your pc, run "adb remount"
7. run "adb push wlan.ko /system/lib/modules/wlan.ko" to make wifi work
8. navigate to setting on your phone to activate installation of unknown sources
9. run "adb push HTC_CIME.pak to /sdcard/HTC_CIME.pak" to transfer chinese input plugin to sdcard
10. run HTC_CIME using ASTRO which has been bundled with the rom.

---
you can also flash recovery-RAv1.img to make it permanent (not a must)
11. in fastboot mode, run "fastboot flash recovery recovery-RAv1.img"

I think you need to flash the SPL first....
Search a thread started by Amon_RA
There is a collection of SPLs

With a modified SPL, you think you can successfully flash any of these roms, with no guarantee

Nice Rom.

But I do not understand how to install HTC_CIME:confused:.
Should I install it in fastboot or.........? I need some suggestion, thanks.

Awesome work - updated my blog to use this rom instead of the first one skittleguy posted.

http://radixgadgets.blogspot.com - has a step by step guide and quick video of my HTC Magic running this rom.

Haykuro - forgive us bloggers and posters - we are but men standing on the shoulders of giants like yourselves! You've done awesome work and we all appreciate it!!! :)

One odd thing I've noticed with these new roms - the LED light for charging doesn't display anymore - no more orange (indicating charge) or green (indicating full charge) anymore - though it still indicates onscreen.
I suspect the hero devices use a different method for their led notifications and this is why.

place HTC_CIME in sdcard
or run this command
"adb push HTC_CIME.apk /sdcard/HTC_CIME.apk" to push it to the sdcard

Then on your magic (hero, haha), use ASTRO (a file explorer) to execute HTC_CIME

richyyun. You're the man. Many Thanks for your exellent work.

BTW, I have some questions.

When I tried to root my device (Hami Boot Logo) I typed these commands

adb shell
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cd system/bin
cat sh > su

after this command
cat sh > su

it says
write: No space left on device

what should I do?

Thanks

The solution is to remove the original su first before cat sh > su
-->
adb shell
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
cd system/bin
rm su
cat sh > su
chmod 4577 su
sync
reboot
