hi guys,

I mad a goldcard and begun the whole procedure, step1 goes well, but when i replace the sd back to the non goldcard sd and go into recovery mode, all i get is a black screen with a "!" in a triangle. no options to choose, no nothing.

when i tyry running the step two file i get the following message (same as benny) :

C:\r3-legend-root>step2-windows.bat

Legend Root Step 2

Pushing required files to device...

* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *

* daemon started successfully *

error: device not found

error: device not found

Pushing update file to device sdcard - this may take a few minutes...

error: device not found

error: device not found

I redone my goldcard. and it works. any idea how to whats the problem?

Now wipe and apply rootedupdate.zip from the recovery image menu.

error: device not found

I've already tried remaking my goldcard, it went well, and the goldcard works, but i still get the same message on step 2.

any help?

same here ..

so I reboot to enter rom, I can root with only perform Step 1 ..

BUT ... adb is dead.

and also cannot mount sdcard to my mac/linux/win , but i can read it via astro

that's why I could not go throught to step 2, I think.

i've also checked before doing step 2 by doing ./adb-mac -linux -windows.exe devices , but still error: device not found

no,when you install the rom SFR 1.32,the rooted will be gone! Because the 1.32 havn't be rooted yet. Don't try it.

...

[*]In the terminal window, enter either 'step1-windows.bat', './step1-mac.sh' or './step1-linux.sh' as appropriate.

[*]When this step has completed, REMOVE THE GOLDCARD and either format it and replace, or replace with a different (non goldcard) microSD.

Could someone tell me if this step (replacing the goldcard) is really necessary?

Also, is there any way (adb, weird third-party stuff...) to write files to /system?

How about editing it pre-flash?

I assume one would need to get the new zip signed and insert the signature somewhere, a point in the right direction would be nice :)

Hi everybody,

I'm new on this forum, find so much information about rooting phone device is very cool ;)

I've a question about rooting htc legend, is there any way to downgrade from a carrier 1.32 rom to nude 1.31 or 1.23 and updated to 1.31 OTA ?

I've a recent htc legend in this version and i'm sad to realise that there is no way to root this device.

I hope that Someone work on this project... :)

Thanks.

I managed to extract a Asian Rom WWE using dsiXDA's kitchen, i can delete apk's that i don't want, zipalign everything, zip the whole package with it being signed & install it on my Legend no problem. The problem im having is when i add apk's from a different custom ROM thats when i get the dreaded boot loop scenario. The issues i have is when i add the HTC_IME.apk & HTC_IME.odex files to replace the asian HTC_CIME.apk & HTC_CIME.odex coz i don't want the chinese keyboard, thats when i get the dreaded boot loop after the phones been flashed. Can someone help me out?

cheers,

Su

The only thing that I can see is that testimage.zip is not loading on Legend and that means that no one can run step1.sh successfully.

testimage.zip is an edited/tweaked 1.23.... and this is a problem for legend with 1.31.... ROM on it.

Solution (as I can see it): tweak 1.31.... ROM and all will be OK!

Great move by Paul!!! Keep it ON!!!

gr.

do you have any solution???

can post it??

thanks..

p/s: my legend stuck at black screen with red triangle...dunno wat else to do

Rooted and working great since a couple of days after release 1, works like a dream!!

I could do with getting hold of the original UK Voda ROM somehow as my phone is acting up. If anybody has any sources that would be great, I should be able to then root the original Voda UK if I can get hold of it.

Thanks

James

thanks..

work for me too....

my experience..

after step 1 (step1.sh) go to bootloader > recovery (a black screen with red triangle will popup)

run step 2(step2.sh)

wait until finish..

then select wipe>wipe data

then lastly load flash from sd

after that it will reboot (just like formatting a pc)

it will prompt to restore data from your sdcard (if your sdcard contain backup data)

finish

p/s: i just know that superuser permission in the rooted one is already invoked and need to use command from shell in pc

:rolleyes: :D :( :(
