I have a HTC Magic G1 which I received in a broken ("bricked") state. It won't start up past the HTC Magic screen, and also won't enter the Fastboot, Recovery or Reset menus. It WILL enter the blue light mode.

So, I'm looking for a company or person whom is able to (and has experience) with jTag-ing this device or whatever it will take to get this un-bricked. I'm looking for the cheapest way to do this (preferably a no-fix no-fee), and if it's in Auckland, all the better.

Do you know somebody? Can you do it? Please let me know.

These guys are based in Auckland and dont charge if they can't repair it.

$119 though..a bit expensive.

Thanks for the reply, a fair bit more than I wanted to pay though. Maybe I should just sell it as is or something . :(
