Hello

 

I've been searching around for how to root htc magic's but i havent yet came upon a successful guide for the vodafone uk version of htc magic yet.

 

So I was wondering if any of you guys have successfully rooted it?

 

and if so... has it been lagging much with the custom rom loaded onto it

 

thanks :-)

Depending on which Magic you have (a 32A or B) one of these pages from the cyanogenmod wiki would probably be most helpful:

  http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Full_Update_Guide_-_MT3G/Magic_Firmware_to_CyanogenMod

 

It looks like the Vodafone UK Magic is probably a 32B, but don't quote me on that!

 

Good luck! (I installed the Froyo release candidate on my G1 last week: it's great.)
