    Hmmm, not much Rooting info. (coming from Hero, where it's rife).

    What gives? is it possible to root a legend? Can you use recovery images and alternative roms?

    Can someone give me the lowdown on where the Legend is right now compared to the Hero.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, watched that and have a couple of questions, based on my Hero Rooting experience.

    With the Hero if you installed the custom recovery bootloader RA-hero-v1.6.2 You were then pretty much forced to load a custom OS image too.

    Is this still the case with the Legend? The unlocker video seemed to be cut short in several places, as it wasn't obvious what was happening. The zip that was loaded from the sdcard from the recover menu, what did that do? Did it just root what was on there already?

    In other words, can I still run the latest and official HTC Legend ROM, that's just rooted?

    here is a long story.

    8/4 connected the system update OTA - then the WiFI dead with " unable to start the Wi Fi" - version updated to "2.1 updated 1"
    8/5 then i hard re-set the Legend , nothing change , Wi FI still death!
    8/6 : my original ROm is "Asia_TW_1.31709.2 Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.26L_ release_122023_signed
    however, i wrong loaded RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_2.03.405.3_radio_47.39.35.09_7.08.35.21_release_130330_signed
    this converted my phone from a TAIWAN version to an EU version & lost the handwriting functions.

    i tried to root the system but not success ( sure the Gold card has no problem)

    Try run the RUU but got Error message "ERROR[140]: BOOT LOADER VERSION ERROR[​IMG]

    CAN ANYONE ONE HELP ME TO RESUME TO THE ORIGINAL ROM, TKS

    hi guys

    still cannot root the legend.
    using the gold card method -
    running step-1 windows found INFOchecking main version ....
    FAILED <remote: 43 main version check fail>

    believed this is the main coz of the failing rooting.
    do any one have any idea on this???
