    This is a general question. I am not a tech type guy and I am afraid that I could not root my Rogers HTC Magic. I would like to update the system to 1.6 or better.

    Are there stores or businesses in Vancouver, Canada that would do this for a fee? I use an unlocked phone and am not with Rogers wireless.

    I spend a lot of time in Hong Kong. Is there a business there that can do it?

    Hi Frank,

    No stores will do this or assist you in doing this, specially when your device doesn't come directly from them and it's not tied to any of their services.

    I have an HTC Dream which I upgraded to Cyanogen Mod's ROM, which includes root access and many, many features and improvements. I did it myself carefully following instructions on the Wiki.

    If you require help or have questions about the process, I'd suggest you connect to the IRC chat channel on the web at:
    CyanogenMod Wiki

    For your phone the specific guide you should follow is here:
    Full Update Guide - G1/Dream Firmware to CyanogenMod - CyanogenMod Wiki

    Since you're using a device specific to the Canadian market I'd also suggest you join this small but growing group of Android users in Canada:

    Good luck,

    Fabian
