Flashing the Magic

After a horible research period and a lot of trouble discovering the ./fastboot oem unlock I talked about earlier; I am now booting my new Cyanogenmod-ded HTC Magic. Its just booted and Im Extremely curious and excited πŸ˜€ Thanks to the great XDA forum resources, notoriously their wiki pages (HTC Sapphire Hacking & HTC Sapphire Hacking 2) and CyanogenMod (STABLE)Β  03/04 – v4.2.15.1 & Cyanogen Latest Version for the necessary software.

After installing the SDK and the fight for fastboot (google “fastboot download” helped); I was able to boot the backup image, backup the files and get cracking πŸ˜‰

And Cyanogenmod; Android 1.6 is a Fact πŸ˜€

Still some weirdness going on though.. com.google,process.gapps has stopped unexpectedly several times now :/ and my market downloads dont work so far either, but Im sure between google, the forums and some dicking around, Ill be able to sort that out..

Next, an android 2.1 mod πŸ™‚

Edit: Oooh! Voice search is Sooo cool!!!!!!!! I merely said “Battlestar Galactica” and there it was!! oooooh πŸ˜€
The pinch zooming etc is cool too!

  1. And re-installing the apps? Backups the .apk files and put them back with a small bash trick

    for a in *; do adb -d install “$a”; done;


  2. SMS Backup, http://code.google.com/p/android-sms/ , is an app that backups your SMS data to GMail over the imap functionality. Either when you tell it to or automagically (its great to see your newest SMS messages appear in the gMail!)

    Just need to remember that I need to use the basic gMail user name for a login and not the regular email adress.. ie the part before the @gmail.com

    Flashing without it would be a nuisance..
