    Dear All,
    hope you can help as the HTC Magic, which I borrowed from a friend, does not boot up!

    It was working fine until I did a factory reset from the setting menu.

    Now it freezes: the green android comes out from the lower part of the screen and then the screen stays black

    I have read several threads and it seems that for most people this or this one
    work, but not in my case !

    Help please!
    many thanks

    If you have followed the instructions from Ramshackle below... I'm clueless.

    To perform a Factory Reset on a HTC Magic:
    1. With the device turned off, (remove and re-insert battery) press and hold the HOME and POWER buttons Until the Yellow Triangle is displayed ( this can take 15-20 seconds, continue to hold both buttons
    2. When the Yellow Triangle is displayed, release the HOME and POWER Keys
    3. Hold the HOME key, with this held down press and release the POWER key
    4. Release the HOME Key, using the Trackball, scroll down to wipe data/factory reset and click the trackball The device has now been reset.
    5. Using the Trackball scroll up to reboot and click the Trackball.

    You might ask your friend if the phone was rooted. To not load a rom on a factory reset could be root/rom issue.
