    Hey.
    I have just root'et my magic (not for the first time) and everything went according to plan, i uploaded the update-zip file to my sd card, and went in to the update menu (or what its called) and pressed apply update, and after the phone was updated, i pressed reboot.
    And here starts the trouble: the phone just locks at the HTC Magic screen, its keeps showing that screen for a very long time, and nothing else happens, so i need some help to "wake up" my phone again.
    I cant find my phone in SDK when i use the "adb devices" command.
    If i try and use the [Home+Power on] command, i get a screen with a phone and a triangular sign with a "!" above the phone
    Can anyone help me? what should i do?

    - Hold the HOME and POWER button until you get the triangle.
    - Then release HOME and POWER
    - Push and hold HOME and press the POWER button once
    - Release the HOME button and use the "mouse" and go down to Wipe data/factory"
    - ???
    - PROFIT :p

    That didn't help, still just the HTC Magic loading screen. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Pull Battery for a minute and then reinstall it ...
    THEN >> When you press and hold the HOME key and then press power .. Can you get back to the Recovery menu ... ?

    I'm having issues too: I accidentally flashed my phone with spl-signed.zip before applying the radio update; my phone now starts up to the initial boot screen, but won't go any further.

    So far, I've tried pulling the battery for a few minutes, and booting whilst holding the Home button, but it stays stuck at that screen.

    I'm a bit worried now; can anyone offer any other suggestions?

    EDIT:- Actually, this is the Magic forum, I've got a Dream, sorry!

    if you can get to the recovery screen i would suggest pulling your sd card out while power is off putting a known working build on the sd then power up to the recovery do an alt+w followed by alt+s when it finishes the install you should be good to go.....

    well i would first try to get to fastboot by holding down camera+end when booting if you can get to that i can give you images to flash your phone back to life... if that does not work try booting holding down the volume down button + end and if that does not work i would say it is time to think about getting it exchanged or using your insurance on the phone if you have it........
