    I bought the HTC Magic in India, about 3 weeks back. I got the legal version for with i paid about $100 more than the UK edition which is also available, but not legal.

    I noticed the very 1st day that it dint have the Android Market, Google Maps and other google applications. I feel Cheated, Spoke to HTC they say thats how magic will be in india.

    I want to know if there is any way to install the Android Market, or may be the HERO firmware on to this one. Even if it means i loose warranty.

    Also how risky is it too Root the phone and what all can one do by rooting !!
