Help with T-mobile G1

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I know this is a newb question, i purchased a phone that has already been rooted and already has cyanogens froyo 2.2, its a great rom, but i was hoping for something a little faster like the super d1.11 . My question being, my phone is already rooted, and i have downloaded the files for the rom, all i need to do is change it to update.zip and place in the root folder of my SD? restart the phone and hold the home and end keys? do the other roms files need to be removed from my sd? I guess i need something called a danger spl as well? help would be much appreciated

XDA-Developers, sounds to me like you're new at this. Make sure you do your research. Go to the link I posted and start reading up.

Ah the G1. Good times. The Danger SPL changes your Radio Firmware and can brick your phone if not done properly. Some G1 boards can't support it. As far as the ROMs go, you have the general idea, Pressing Power+Home brings you to the Recovery. The recovery only sees roms on the SD/Root of your card. You can delete other roms using a file manger on the phone or computer. You don't have to change the .zip name to update. Just under the Recovery use flash any zip from card option and just locate the file you want to flash.

This link from XDA will help you with everything.

If you need any more help, let me know. I had a G1 since launch day until I got rid of it for my HD7. Rooted it, partioned the card, had Sense running it, pushed items thru adb, the works. Just let me know.

when you are on the sign in screen, hit menu and see if you can get into wireless settings. you may have to enter your carrier's apn settings in to get connected to the internet. or, turn wifi on and connect to your router if possible. a lot of roms don't come with the carrier apn settings pre configured.
