Is there any simpler way of rooting the Legend to be able to use those Modaco baked roms?

Its to complex procedure... goldcard... blah blah.

Can anybody help me if there´s a simpler way?

Many people would appreciate!

Thanks mates!

If there was a simpler way Paul had posted it already.

Making a Goldcard is very easy if you use Linux, in fact as easy as typing one command.

I think in Windows it's a lot more complicated.

And after inserting that Goldcard you simply need to call two scripts. Sorry, that's as easy as the complex process of hacking a highly secured device can get.

Rule of thumb: If you don't understand the HowTo, if it is too complicated for you, if you've got no idea what you are doing: Stay away from it.

I made my goldcard in windows ( virtual machiene i really use linux ) but is was just as easy as counting to 3

i missed the linux command ( if it is easyer than the windows procedure it must be so small you look over it :( )

just curious what is the linux procedure ??

As easy as eating cake.

Connect your phone in mass storage mode.

You'll get a new drive registered, e.g. /dev/sdb. If you're not sure which one it is, "tail -f" your syslog or examine dmesg.

Make sure your system doesn't mount the partition, like Ubuntu is configured to do by default (and if it does, unmount it).

Then, provided you already have your Goldcard image, just do a "dd if=goldcard.img of=/dev/sdX bs=384" (don't use the partition, but the whole drive).

You could also do this with a card reader, drive letters may of course vary again.

As far as I remember this procedure even preserved the first partition.

typical linux : a simple command and things are done

not like windows : open hex editor, open drive, open image, copy , paste ,save
