APN's blocked/wiped from factory reset.
I just messed up my rooted G1 about some hours ago trying to install the HTC Hero theme cos apparently I updated to JF US instead of ADP.
So I went to factory reset it. But apparently, T-Mobile's got this new thing going on. If you factory reset it, T-Mobile wipes all the APN's from your phone and won't allow you to add new ones, thus rendering your phone service-less. (You get stuck in the android/googleaccount login screen with no way of signing on since you have no service. I fixed it by using the Camera+Power button to update my DREAIMG.img back to RC29, which evidently has every single APN.)
Luckily, I somehow got onto the home screen with ONE SINGLE APN, I get into the wireless settings and try to add new APN's, but everytime I save a new APN, it doesn't actually save; it gets deleted.
So the problem is, I'm stuck with one APN;Edge and I can't add more.
I've tried re-rooting but without using factory reset (Alt+W in recovery startup) and just skipping straight to installing update.zip, you'd get stuck at the flashing ANDROID
So you see my problem? I'm currently connected to Wi-Fi since I'm home and was lucky enough to have that one single APN (which took me almost 30 minutes to sign in with due to it being Edge) but I'm going to need more then Edge once I leave any reliable Wi-Fi zone.
I read somewhere on xda that someone found the apn file/list, I'm not sure where it was but it was definitely there and he code-boxed it. Would taking that file/list and pushing it into my G1 recover my APN's or wouldn't it?
If it would, can anyone try and upload a copy onto rapidshare or the similar, please?
