Updating my g1
Currently there are three flavours available: If you are a normal user that wants to have root access, install RC8.If you are an advanced developer that wants to do kernal hacking, install ADP1.Apart from this, Google today announced Android 2.0 and it’s features.I installed Gigabytes AORUS GRAPHICS ENGINE and my GPU LED lights turned off and stoped working.
This update wont overwrite your OS (Bootloader and OS are two separate parts) If you want to revert to the original G1 bootloader, use the file attached in the XDA topic. If you are unfamiliar with the different types of firmwares, I recommend to use either the Official ADP firmware (1.5) from HTC or a customized firmware made by Jesusfreke.If you don’t have a dataplan, it is also possible to use wifi to sign in. Before we can install a custom firmware we need to install the test sign keys.On your G1, everything you type on your keyboard is also being run in a hidden console with root permissions. Note: There are 2 ways to install the test keys, one is from the SD card and the other one is using ADB (from the android SDK).You say be sure to apply the radio update before the system/recovery image if you’re upgrading to a new firmware.So I want to be going from rc7 to a custom rom, probably the Jesusfreke rc8 to start off with.
