htc magic flash perfect spl – android

androidThis christmas I offered myself an htc magic from Portuguese provider TMN.

This came with a “perfect” SPL 1.33.0014.

After a few hours searching I ended up using the goldcard method to flash it up.

I followed http://vivekgolecha.blogspot.com/2009/08/as-promised-i-said-i-would-come-up-with.html but with some changes.

I 1. no need to download the fastboot as it comes by default with the new sdk

II 1. I used a sandisk 1gb without a problem.

II 12. i quick formated the sd card to fat32 on my computer on this step (not sure if it was needed)

II 13. choose the “removable disk” from the bottom option and NOT the top eg:”Untitled Disk (F:)” – I almost gave up here. So simple and was my main problem.

III 1. Used “ROM v2.53.707.2 (Engineerings SPL v1.33.2010)” as you cannot downgrade spl for me this was the only option

III 29. My sdcard was causing some media error. I took it out and without it no problem. I ended up formating it using the phone and it re-started working fine.

And thats all you need to change spl.

After that I followed this tutorial http://forum.pplware.com/showthread.php?tid=4043&page=1 (Portuguese) my recovery page looked and gave me some diferent options, but it was common sense.

Its working fine. Faster and without any errors or bugs. so far 🙂

  2. Boas Carlos:

    Se de facto conseguiste fazer o unmount e formatar o cartão COM SUCESSO então não vejo que possa estar a acontecer.

    A mim as drivers estavam a dar-me imensos problemas no Windows 7 e acabei por usar o meu portátil que corre XP para fazer o processo todo.

  3. Ola!

    Muito obrigado pelo tutorial.

    Disseste que usaste a spl ROM v2.53.707.2 (Engineerings SPL v1.33.2010) mas no passo III.6 diz para colocar especificamente a 1.33.2005? o que fizeste nesse passo?

    Obrigado

  4. Boas Miguel:

    No passo:
    III.6 descarreguei e instalei o update.Engineering-SPL-HBOOT-1.33.2005-signed

    No passo:
    III.1 descarreguei o ROM v2.53.707.2 (Engineerings SPL v1.33.2010)
