well everybody is waiting for a messias
some tried to downgrade but did not succeed..
there are 2 possibilities
1 - someone alters the american downgrade with a different CID or whatever keeps it from running on our G1
2 - some european linux pros find an exploit in our firmware

rc33
What if we get the RC33 update[version 1.5]? Can we downgrade to RC29 then?

I'm a Dutch G1 user, same build thus. Also waiting for root access, for tethering & auto rotate mainly.

As i mentioned in other threads we all got the same issues with downgrading/becoming root/chanching hte bootloader/do anything weird with this device..

My spec are:

Basebandversion:
62.33.20.08U_1.22.12.29
Kernel version:

Build number:
123099


Bootscreen says:
DREA110 PVT 32B
HBOOT-0.95.000
CPLD-4
RADIO-1.22.12.29


SEP 2 2008



When booting o the update.zip it seays: Finding - / opening - /verifying update package and then at "installing update" package it prompts:

Code:
E:Failure at line1:
assert file_contains("SYSTEM:build.prop", " ro.build.fingerprint=tmobile/kila/dream/trout:1.0/TC4-RC30/116143:user/ota-rel-keys, release-keys") == "true" || file_contains("SYSTEM:build.prop", "ro.build.fingerprint=tmobile/kila/dream/troInstallation aborted.
any ideas?

Do the others have the same issues?

I thiunk i will wait for other comanies to sell android-able phones and get one of their's.

Spent about 20 Hours now on googleing and searching. That usually should do it 10 ten times trying to solve any problem with linux, but it doesn't.

It occurs to me that android isn'T as free as they say and that it isn't as opensource as everybody is told. That's CRAP!

Please search "open source" on the dream forums. This stupid bs has been gone over before.

German G1s with the new CID can NOT be downgraded with the available leak NBH files. CID mismatch. They also can NOT be upgraded with RC33 update.zip files, as updaters are region specific (assertion in the update script that checks the device's existing fingerprint against an allowed list).

Long story short: German G1 owners have to wait for now.

Example of someone who does not read, just bitches. The OS is open, the device is not. Blame your cell provider, not Android. Also go read a few threads and by all means, return your G1 and buy something later after you have done some reading.

when you can't contribute, you're in a really bad position to get an answer

when you have a good idea in how doing this, I'm sure JFv is willing to help...
