I am thinking about rooting my HTC G1 android device, but I am a little scared to brick my phone. What is the chance of bricking my phone using Universal AndRoot? I am running firmware 1.6 and want to update to froyo. I just want to know how high or low the chances are of bricking. Please reply quick.

If you read the directions very carefully and pay attention to what you're doing, almost nonexistent. There's also a program for the computer called super one click.

BE AWARE THAT TO FLASH A CUSTOM ROM ON YOUR G1 YOU WILL PROBABLY NEED A CUSTOM SPL. Do some reading to make sure you do this correctly.

If you just want to root your existing software with universal androot you just install, press the button and go on your merry way.

Thanks I am going to try this froyo port for g1 made from the official T-Mobile MyTouch 3g update. It is supposed to be really fast and it does have a certain SPL and Radio img so I will be sure to flash those first. Thanks for the help!

No worries, have fun and don't freak out if something goes awry, all part of the process.

Quick tip. On first boot of new Rom, let it sit for about 20 mins before you start setting up. Lot of background processes and "thinking" going on. ROM will run WAY better if you do this.

Ok thanks. I have never read that you should wait but I will be sure to do so. Thanks for all of you help, I am a lot more confident in rooting my phone now! I will post how it goes once I root it and put on the rom.

Yeah it's one of those things they don't really tell you in the rooting guides, but it makes a big difference. I usually flash roms while watching tv so I go at least between commercial breaks after first boot.

Have fun!

Btw, is this the rom you're talking about? I liked this one better than TMUS.

Yeah that is the ROM that I am talking about! That's the post I am following to install it. Have you tried it or heard about it? I hear it is really fast (faster then cyanogen!) and nearly perfect!!
