    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

    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.
