    Hi i just recieved an HTC magic and i would like to root it. I am kinda new to the android world so any step by step would be awesome.

    also would like to know if it can be rooted.

    Mode: HTC magic
    Firmware: 1.5
    Baseband: 63.18.55.06ku_6.35.10.18
    Kernel: 2.6.27-5b476e83 htc-kernel@and18-2 #989
    build#: 3.05.631.7 CL#118917 release-keys

    I have no dataplan so i use apndroid. And my carrier is rogers in canada.

    Thanks for the help.I will keep searching for stuff to do to this phone.

    IIRC that old guide doesn't work with all Magics.

    For more upto date information I'd use the cyanogenmod wiki as a guide

    HTC Magic - CyanogenMod Wiki

    I'd also reccommend cyanogenmod if you're looking for a good stable custom ROM. I'm currently running CM 6 RC3 their Beta of a Froyo ROM.

    Do a Google search for "universal androot" it is the easiest and quickest root. after its rooted use ROM Manager to install custom recovery.
