So I was running the updated HTC Magic with sense ui. It was the "official" 1.5 cupcake release.
I decided to take the plunge and do some research and try and flash my phone to the latest and greatest.
It took about 8 hours of research and trial and error untill I finally managed to remove the "perfect SPL" which has S-ON. This "S-ON" is basically security on. It means you cant have access to your phone properly. The perfect SPL means that you cant fastboot and load an image as it says remote access not allowed.
At the moment im running froyorider 0.4 and im thinking of loading on cyanogen 6. The other one I was thinking of was smoki, as smoki is an original OS and has access to all the normal desktop etc. that is included in froyo. Apparently froyorider and cyanogen dont look like froyo anyway.
