I will definitely look into it tomorrow/friday.

Can I access to system/fonts and remove old font file by using this way ?

I want to replace old font file with new one. I creat a new font fiel with more character for more language

And I have more question : Can I access read write to G1 device without wifi connection ? I don't have wifi router. I'm saving money to get one.

Yep. You better get root while you can, and then protect your phone from OTA updates . It almost makes me want to go buy a couple and jailbreak them, then wait for the patch and sell them for a premium. lol.

FYI you don't need to do all that to get the ip address. Just click on the wifi network you are connected to and it will show signal and ip.

ISTR its settings -> network -> wireless.

Google has already commented on this issue with update RC30. “We’ve been notified of this issue (Jailbreaking of Android) and have developed a fix. We’re currently working with our partners to push the fix out and updating the open source code base to reflect these changes.”

People never know how to load custom rom's on new software. Think of it like when a new version of Windows or Mac comes out. It takes time to figure out how to get passed some stupid companies locks so you can customize your software.

Figuring that it has only taken us 2 weeks exactly to jailbreak the device and basically run C compiled software on the device I think we are way ahead of the game. How long did it take to even jailbreak the iPhone? or how long did it take to just learn how to update WM 5 or 6 to 6.1?

You put iPhone and WM on a pedestal, but you don't look at the fact that the android is still a growing baby, and iPhone and WM are both in their older years. Think of it like that, android is still a baby, the iPhone is like the 8-12 year old and WM is like the 16-21 year old. Of course you can do more with the 16-21 year old, and of course things are easier to do with the 8-12 year old and you expected them to talk back to you. But the baby isn't quite developed yet... but at the same time the baby could talk before any of the other kids. Before you know it android is gonna be walking and playing and going to college while the other 2 are going to be in high school still.

Either way I am glad I got my phone. And it won't be much longer before you see the android OS on other phones and the G1 topping all other phones with its numerous updates and overall biggest developer base. With all new things comes an opposition, the difference between success and failure is whether you can convince the opposition.

/rebuttal rant LOL

hmm, well, my opinion...

if you know linux then android's got a really big advantage... you know how most of the system works - and there are quite some people out there who are familiar with linux, or if not, you got a lot of documentation online to learn it.

problem: google already fixed this bug (I agree it had to be fixed, it was horrible how everything you typed got processed, our problem is just a consequence of the fix), now how to jailbreak new g1's? not fun unless we get lucky. this is actually a lot worse than apple's iphone, because apple never bothered to hide the root password

BTW i was there when iphone got jailbroken, and it took less time than android, even though overall the hack was less trivial as iphone was a lot more locked down. (cracking the activation required some nice x86 disassembly, and the jailbreak for accessing the filesystem was a very nice trick)

again, reminding you of the real problem. Chainfire is right here. if it wasn't for this, I'd say it could go to college quite fast

Busybox works great
remounted /system rw
copied bbox to /system/bin and symlinked cp, passwd, chown, nc, login, adduser add group, yada
used bbox and a little pasting to add passwd, group and shadow into etc
busybox telnetd worked against the created passwd,shadow and group files and used bb's login
added busybox telnetd to /system/init.rc (init.rc got overwritten on next boot, pre-brick)
edited /system/build.props and added ro-secure = 0 (this probably did it)

The property is what adbd checks when deciding to setuid 2000, I think certain files are checksummed for boot as well as for updating.

if you are still stuck (system not booting, recovery not booting), PM me, I have some things to test for the SPL (the tricolour screen)
