Okay guys. here's the official thread. this will be for diagnostic purposes ONLY.

do not go off topic in this thread. no questions are to be asked, only data.

first question: what radio, and SPL were you using prior to getting bricked?

EDIT: please flash latest radio (http://code.google.com/p/sapphire-port-dream) before flashing SPL.. this may be causing bricks.
EDIT2: http://www.droiddeveloper.com/hrbuil...dio-signed.zip

new spl + radio combo. no more bricks i hope!

How to flash new spl and avoid brick
EDIT: I am 99.9% sure this will work with a PVT board. I am not sure about DVT BUT if you are willing to risk bricking your G1 to find out, that would be great Reboot in fastboot and make sure it says "DREA100 PVT"

EDIT: please flash latest radio (http://code.google.com/p/sapphire-port-dream) before flashing SPL..

EDIT: It has been confirmed that you WILL brick your phone if you attempt to downgrade your radio after flashing the new SPL. So.. don't.


Everyone is scared because they want the new spl but do not want a brick. Well this should help you all out. (should). First you should know I do not recommend trying this if you do not have a PVT board. I also will not take any responsibility for any bricked devices, though I believe this should work well.

WHAT YOU MUST HAVE:
You must have 2 microSD cards

OR

You must have one microSD card and a microSD card adapter and microSD card reader

AND

Two files: The new SPL file
http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecod...spl-signed.zip
And the update file of the build you are currently using.

IF YOU HAVE TWO MICRO SD CARDS:
1. Download the SPL
2. Upload the new SPL on one microSD card and name it "update.zip" and upload the update file of the build that you are currently using on the other microSD card and name it "update.zip"
3. Put the microSD with the SPL update in your phone and reboot to recovery mode.
4. THIS IS IMPORTANT (perform a nandroid backup, of course) Apply the update, and once complete DON'T DO ANYTHING.. read step 5.
5. WITHOUT PRESSING ANY BUTTONS remove your microSD card from your phone and place the other microSD card in it.
6. Press Alt + x to go to the console. If your phone does not reboot automatically, type reboot recovery, then press enter.
7. If you boot up in recovery, you have done everything correctly. Now apply the update, reboot, and you're done.

IF YOU HAVE ONE SD CARD:
1. Upload new SPL on your microSD and rename to "update.zip"
2. Reboot your phone into recovery mode.
3. THIS IS IMPORTANT (perform a nandroid backup, of course) Apply the update, and once complete DON'T DO ANYTHING.. read step 4.
4. WITHOUT PRESSING ANY BUTTONS remove your microSD card from your phone, and plug it into your microSD card adapter/SD card reader
5. Remove/rename the SPL update (to something other than "update.zip") and upload the update file of the build you are currently using onto your microSD card. Put your microSD card back in your phone AGAIN WITHOUT PUSHING ANY BUTTONS
6. Press Alt + x to go to the console. If your phone does not reboot automatically, press enter, type "reboot recovery", then press enter again.
7. If you boot up in recovery, you have done everything correctly. Now apply the update, reboot, and you're done.

Radio: 2.22.19.26I
was using dude's latest firmware if that matters
Android board: PVT (I have USA retail black phone from the presale)
current SPL before flashing to H's SPL: Hard SPL

here is the process i used for the new H SPL and H 6.0 firmwares i did tonight.

wiped
loaded new H SPL (1.33.2005)
wiped
loaded new H 6.0
booted new H 6.0
lots of loops
reloaded new H 6.0
more loops
hit home key while it was booting and it went into safe mode
configured the phone, powered off, turned on, booted and no more loops.

working now

just update to your rom haykuro mines worked fine n downloaded the new spl but not the radio and my phone works good

i did the same for my friend n he stuck on the g1 screen
i follow these steps for both phones
Code:
 WOW THIS IS AWESOME!!

my phone has more memory and seems faster!!!

WARNING THE NEW SPL IN SOME CASES CAN BRICK YOUR PHONE USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION!!!

Ill give all of you guys directions

Download the SPL

rename to update.zip

then Home+End

Alt+S

let it do its thing

Wait till you reboot the second time from the recovery screen to reboot.

then it will reboot and hang!!

NOW

Take your battery out and SD card out

get an sd card reader and put your Jesusfreke 1.5 or whatever back on your sdcard

rename to update.zip

Put the battery back in and

Home+END

Alt+S

then it will all be dandy!
still stuck for 1 phone only i dont know how when i did the same steps for both phones but only 1 got stuck

any ideas?

So was old radio the common denominator amongst most (PVT) bricks?

Yes! It seems that the radio from RC33 is very critical to brick G1. I bricked the phone when I downgraded the radio to RC33.
