Question HTC magic boot loop rooted. Need desperately HELP!!!

Hi there. I would appreciate your help here. I am a rookie with android software as I own an HTC Magic almost 3 weeks from now. My phone has the above characteristics:
SAPPHIRE PVT32A SHIP S-ON H
HBOOT-1.76.0009 (SAPP10000)
CPLD-12
RADIO-6.35.08.29
Dec 8 2009, 17:38:48
The software I had was Android 1.5 and it was rooted with RUU_Sapphire_HTC_Europe_3.05.401.1_test_signed_NoD river ROM. I was watching on Youtube some videos about CyanogenMod 6 at HTC phones and I decided to try to put this software to my phone via ROM Manager. The result is a major disaster (or not?). Specifically, from my phone I opened ROM Manager, download rom, CyanogenMod nightlies , CM6 XXXXXXXX (can’t remember which one) EBI1 Kernel… So I had successfully downloaded it and followed the instructions while installing. After installation completed it automatically rebooted and started loop again and again. All it gets to is the "HTC MAGIC" screen and then reboots every 5 seconds. At the begging I thought that this is the installation process. 30 minutes later I had a doubt for this. I pulled out the battery cause pressing the Power on/off button nothing happened. I tried everything… nothing at all. I pressed the Power on/off button again it continued looping. After I pulled out and inserted the battery I pressed the Home and Power on/off button (Android recovery) it still continued looping. Removed again the battery and inserting again while pressing Back and Power on/off button (fastboot ) it still continued looping. I pressed Home and Back buttons and tapped Power on/off button… the same issue (continued looping). Down volume and Power on/off button… nothing. Up volume and Power on/off button… nada. Pulled out the battery for 30 minutes and tried again… nothing again. Tried again and again with the USB connected and disconnected… nothing. Still looping. I tried to install the previous Rom I had via PC but I couldn’t cause USB was connecting and disconnecting because of the rapid (5 second) boot loop. The only button which seems to work is the trackball which freezes everything with the blue led on and a black screen between the loops. I pressed all the buttons together wishing something to happen… unfortunately nothing happened. I backup my SD card and tried with an older backup I had… nothing… boot loop remains. I am despaired and tired (almost 18 hours online searching some help or solution). The only thing I want is to make fastboot work and install my old ROM via my PC… nothing else.
Please, please, please…. HELP ME!!!

Default Same here

I have the same problem as you do except my phone is a rogers(Canada) so it boots to the rogers screen. This happened about a month ago and I still haven't found a solution. One thing i have found is that if you hold the back botton just before it reboots you can get to the fastboot screen. I Dont no where to go from there. I Posted here last night no responses yet. If you come up with a solution PLEASE let me know.

If you get into fastboot mode then you can plug your HTC Magic USB cable with PC and when you hear the connection mode go to device manager and see if your phone is recognized. If it is recognized then you can install from your PC any original ROM you want. That is what I want to do but unfortunatelly the back button doesn't work for me...

Sorry to hear that it wont go into fastboot. Your description of what happened to your phone is exactly the same as mine to a T. My phone is coming up as android 1 in devices and printers ADB interface-HTC bootloader in device manager. What next?

You have to install the correct drivers of your device via AndroidSDK. Even though why don't you try in this situation to run directly from your PC your original Rom? e.g. My Original rom is: _HTC Magic_RUU_Sapphire_HTC_Europe_3.05.401.3_release_s igned_NoDriver.exe
If you manage to do this and follow the installation directions i'm 100% sure you will install your original rom with success. I wish I could help you further...

You just need to sycronize your PC with your phone via USB cable and then find a apropriate ROM for your mobile, then double click it and follow the installation. Everything is going to be automaticaly set up. I wish I could do that for you and of course for me... and my bricked HTC.

Today I gave my Magic to HTC Service. It was confirmed that the electronic circuit was "dead" and it had to be replaced. If I'm lucky maybe I wont pay a dime. It depends if the software I had on was Android compadible or not. If not then... better not think about it!

Found a nice easy fix for this problem after driving myself nuts for four hours.

Pop off the back.

Pull out the battery and SD card.

Put the battery back in and it should reboot nice and clean. Might be a hair slower than usual but it'll get there.

Once you're all booted slide the SD card back in, slap the back back on and you should be good to go.

Only thing I had to do after that was reset the clock on the phone.
