Thanks for the quick response, i'll try CyanogenMod 6 then.

Rodriguezstyle isn't too good for me.

The link you gave is the latest CyanogenMod 6?

Yes, here is the link, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=749919

Setup:

The recommended (easiest) method to download and install Azure is via ROM-Manager (which can be found in the Market).

So please install via the rom manager, in the rom manager goto download rom and choose CyanogenMod 6 (azure-0.5.zip)

and don't forget to check the options Google apps (gapps-az-20100816-0.5.zip) in the check-box.

Also let the rom manager wipe you telephone and let it make a backup.

For other people, only when you Legend is already rooted!!!

Hello all - first post so be gentle!

I have successfully rooted my Legend, thanks to Paul's guide/tools. I used OSX (probably worth pointing out in the first post that the tools only work on Intel Macs! Some of us are still on PPC) and turned a 64MB mini-SD that came with a Nokia many years ago into my gold card. This method was the only one that worked - for some reason when trying to use RUU to do an unrooted debrand, my (XP) PC wouldn't pick up the USB connection when the phone was in bootloader mode. All I could do was let the RUU reboot into the bootloader, then it got stuck :huh: I think it was a driver issue but not sure...

My Legend came with Vodafone branding - I'd mistakenly applied the faulty OTA update (think it brings you up to 2.05.405.2?) so I had to do the hack-legend downgrading bit first. Vodafone as per usual were totally useless - when I complained their update had messed things around (Wifi went a bit picky, and the SMS thing) they suggested I do a factory reset, then call HTC! Thanks, guys *facepalm* Interestingly the man from HTC said they did have an internal 2.2 release for Legend so hopefully it won't be long now...

Once I decided to use the Mac, everything went swimmingly - now I just need to put everything back as it was. Shame on Vodafone for forcing me to root it, I was quite happy with stock until they fiddled with it >_<

One question: when I searched for OTA updates from the phone it said there was one available, then crashed and rebooted midway through the update. Are all the OTA updates going to be unavailable now I'm rooted? I'd like to get it back to the stock equivalent of the 2.1 ROM I was running before, if that's possible - I quite like Sense and Cyanogen doesn't really interest me. Is ROM Manager able to install stock updates? Any ideas?

Cheers

Stone

You can but you will probably lose root

and if you would like to have a more recent build you can have a look at other roms like http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=735299

good luck !!

Hi everyone!!

I just bought a Legend (Bell 2.02.xxxx) and downgraded to 1.31 with the help of wag3slav3 on xda-developers, as well as created my gold card, and got through step 1 with no issues.... the problem is i cannot get step2-windows.bat to work for me with varying issues, i get into recovery mode, and it seems to go downhill from there...

1. error:device offline

2. error:protocol fault

and a bunch of other things...

if anyone has had the same issues and has any luck with fixig anything on step 2, if you could please post or pm me, it would be great :huh:

thanks in advance

Does ROM version mean firmware version? My HTC Legend's firmware version is 2.1

I've been following the instructions on the first page and on Step to i got this error.

So it's not displaying me the recovery menu.

Any suggestions?.

Meanwhile i'm trying it again.

Thanks in Advance

Second Edit:

I've tried to root the phone from my laptop where a 32bit version of windows 7 is running instead of the 64 on on my desktop.

during this i got another error. quite the same but little different.

Hi there,

I finish step1, without errors. I reboot the phone so that I can access the goldcard and wipe it. I reboot my phone and put it into recovery mode and I run step 2. This is the error I receive

Hi my name is marco and I'm new in this forum.

First of all thank you Paul for your how to!

I've got an HTC Legend too,it was a Fastweb one and I've just debranded it,downgrading to this rom RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.31.405.5_R_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_release_126592_sig

ed.exe ,but I arrived at the step 2 and now I need your help!

I'm on win XP SP3 ,when I start my phone and choose "recovery",I see obviously the red triangle,but when I do the comand "step2.." no progress bar appears.Those are some info

SDK installed

hboot 0.43.0001

usb debug on

Firmware n. 2.1

Software n. 1.31.405.4

Moreover I received an Hardware driver error ( "Android 1.0" ) when I plug in the phone in recovery mode,so I tried to fix it using this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=737728 but without success :huh:

It's my prompt message:

Hi my name is marco and I'm new in this forum.

First of all thank you Paul for your how to!

I've got an HTC Legend too,it was a Fastweb one and I've just debranded it,downgrading to this rom RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.31.405.5_R_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_release_126592_sig

ed.exe ,but I arrived at the step 2 and now I need your help!

I'm on win XP SP3 ,when I start my phone and choose "recovery",I see obviously the red triangle,but when I do the comand "step2.." no progress bar appears.Those are some info

SDK installed

hboot 0.43.0001

usb debug on

Firmware n. 2.1

Software n. 1.31.405.4

Moreover I received an Hardware driver error ( "Android 1.0" ) when I plug in the phone in recovery mode,so I tried to fix it using this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=737728 but without success :)

It's my prompt message:

i had exactly the same problem, step 1 went well , and 2 "server is out of date"

and after that i tryed the same thing on a diferent laptop (my gf's) installed drivers, and tryed the step 2 again (and it worked)

i mention that i did not turned off the phone between the 2 PC's (i donno if this is important or not)

on second toughts i donno if i succesfuly rooted my phone ! how do i check if it's rooted ? :P

also please look in Task Manager-> processes -> and if you see that adb.exe is randomly starting and stopping change the PC

do you have access to a linux system ?

there is a way to make a goldcard within linux by simply copying the image to your sdcard

http://android.modaco.com/content/htc-lege...nd-simpler-way/

also check again your goldcard image you might have an error in the image.

just make a new image.

hope you manage !!

good luck

Actually, i'm stuck at the step when i have to remove the coldcard, format it and then replace it because i used my HTC Legend to format my sd card at the beginning. I don't get it, how can I format the goldcard now? I don't have an card reader :lol:

Thanks for your help :)

Hello all.

I'm actually stuck at the downgrading step... I ran the crackin.bat from the Hack4legend.zip. and the guide I used said my phone would reboot 5 times. It only reboots twice, and the message in the terminal is stuck on "adb server is out of date. killing..."

I created my goldcard while the SD card was in my phone (in "Disk Drive" mode), and have never taken the card out. I used the little application that creates and patches the image to the card. I don't know if this is the problem... if I have a bad card, or if the crackin.bat isn't working... Is there any reason I need to remove my SD card and create the gold card directly on my PC?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Edit: Nevermind. It seems I had 2 instances of ADB.EXE running... closing one of them solved the issue.

Hi there,

My name is Randy Khoo. I'm from the South East Asia region.

Just wanna say thanks to all of you guys for your help, namely Paul and wag3slav3.

Just to put down this for the other SEA boys.

1) I started off with my goldcard creation (no problems) and followed Paul's advice at unlockr.com

2) I encountered problems with step 1 -> Remote 43 main check version fail

3) I bumped into "[HOWTO] DOWNGRADE to 1.31 which you can then root for Legend 2.1" at the XDA forums.

4) I ran crackin and reached

crwxrwxrwx 1 1001 2002 90, 0 Jul 19 16:19 /dev/mtd/mtd0

However, i kept getting permission errors while attempting this.

5) Despite the error messages, I decided at this point to just give the downgrade a try anyway...

RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.31.405.5_R_Radio_47.26.35.04_ 7.05.35.26L_release_126592_signed.exe

6) I succeeded and I continued Paul's instruction for Step 1 and Step 2...

7) Sweet success! Thank you...

Really appreciate this community of dedicated developers making rooting possible on the legend!

However i had a few speed bumps i wanted to run through with anyone else of you here that are experts in this field.

1) I had problems accessing SuperUser after the Step 2 => solved by restarting my phone.

2) ROM Manager / ClockWorkMod -> i've installed this and backed up my ROM. I wish to install Azure 6.0.0, however i am not sure if this requires a goldcard?

3) After the downgrade, i noticed there's an upgrade to 1.31.405.5 (3.89MB) when i do a system update. What will happen when I download this? Will it close up all the root vulnerabilities, letting me start all over to where i began in the first place? Will my phone brick with this update? I've read that some people had issues with their phones after they downloaded this...

After running "step2-windows.bat", I get stuck on the red exclamation mark screen, rather than the "recovery" screen. Does anyone have a solution for this?

I haven't actually bricked my phone though, if I take out and re-insert the battery I get back to my normal (unrooted) ROM. Also, I have the correct software/bootloader versions; I downgraded to 1.31 using the method over on XDA.

Thanks in advance!

Also, I have had no luck when I keep the gold card in either (the guide tells you to replace it with a non-goldcard after stage 1)

Hi alexhtclegend,

On Linux he same happened to me, but running the second script with root permissions was succesful. Can you run the script on windows with 'run as administrator'? Maybe that will help.
