Rooting/Overclocking a G1 phone.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well, I got a G1 phone (yeah I know it's old) and I want to overclock it and root it to the latest android version. I don't know how to be going by this since I'm super new to this but any help or anything would mean a great deal to me.

Someone told me about cyanogen or something like that but not to sure what it's about. I just like to get the most out of this phone until my contract ends...

Again any help would be great.

Head over to xda developers (google it), go to their forums, go to the g1 subforum and go to the development category. There will be guides galore in there, make sure to look at the stickies first.

That is all you will need

Edit to overlock you will need to buy an app called setcpu, its $2 but is worth it. Don't buy it or mess around with it until you root and install a modded Rom though.

Are you sure you are fully rooted? You should see the superuser app if you are.
