Frankdrey's Brick Adventure
Twas the night.......nah that's not gonna work...
Anyways, I had just compiled froyo from android source and wanted to flash it
But apparantly I needed a specific spl when I did "fastboot flashall -w" (one of them being 0.95.0000 or whatever, too lazy to remember..but it was one that didn't support fastboot....which is dumb lol since fastboot is saying to use it)...
So I decided to install engineering spl
I had danger spl and the 2.something radio it needs
I decided to flash it from recovery
So really g1s are impossible to brick...if you flash radio and spls from fastboot not recovery
(Most of this knowledge is from a thread about g1s and spls and bricking that I'm too lazy to link to)
What happens is that recovery FORCES the g1 to boot to recovery on next boot...even if you press buttons
And with a mismatched radio/spl recovery will not start
So you have a brick...
Moral: use fastboot not recovery
Anyways so my solution...
I had a really messed up rogers dream that had a cracked screen and bad ribbon cables...
Pretty much everything was broken except for the motherboard...
Well I decided to try and put this rogers motherboard into my tmobile g1
Even booted up into the rom I used to have (biffmod) on the rogers dream before it got screwed up beyond usability
I am posting from my g1 with a rogers motherboard in it as I speak...post....
Moral 2: you can mix motherboards between dreams
One problem is that this ROM still has the keymap for the rogers dream and my home and call button don't work
Hopefully flashing a new rom it will detect the tmobile keyboard
Well this was fun...but I don't know if I'm gonna try to flash my aosp froyo or not again...
Comment please on how you manage to flash a compiled aosp froyo
...maybe ill try flashing engineering spl again through fastboot this time
Edit: oh and I like this motherboards vibrate more:P
The old one rattled like crazy
So this actually a very win situation
I got Frayo back on and everythings beautiful
