Root (HELP) ROM Manager on HTC Magic?


Feb 10, 2011
Hi guys.
I’m very sorry if this problem have been asked before in this forums, but I’ve searched, and cannot find a solution for my problem. So here goes.

I have a HTC Magic 32A (OS: Android 1.5 Cupcake + HTC Sense) and I’ve successfully rooted it with the SuperOneClick App following this guide from theunlockr website (How To: Root Your Android Phone (SuperOneClick Method) | TheUnlockr). I assume I was successful because when I open busy box it says that my phone is rooted.

So my problem starts when I’m trying to follow the second guide on how to load a custom rom. (How To: Load a Custom ROM on Your Android Phone (After Any One Click Root Methods) | TheUnlockr)

They say I must download ROM Manager from the Market, but when I try, it says “installation error”. The current version is 3.xx and I’ve also tried the version but then it says “ROM Manager could not be installed on this phone”

So my question is what can I do to get ROM Manager on my Magic?

Thanks for you time!
