You'd think it was made for your Dream
MT3G OTA Base rom:
This is a standard froyo rom that was customize to work with the MT3G from Google/HTC/T-Mobile, thanks to them for their rom. The original MT3G and the G1 have the same basic hardware/software (besides keyboard and ram space). Shortly after the release of this rom, there was a update patch (which I merged with this rom) before creating Froyo for Trout!.
Froyo for Trout rom: (Trout is the hardware name for the G1)
This rom uses the above rom but has all the sapphire related software removed and replaced it with the dream (trout) software. It is fully De-Odexed for modifications and themes.With essential modifications to have a standard root enabled rom. Everything is fully working...
I believe that there should be a specific rom for a specific smart phone. This is why I did not make this compatible with the MT3G (sapphire). The original base rom worked better then expected with the Trout modifications. I also believe that not everyone wants the same modifications from their phone as others do.
We as a community should set standards when it comes to our most prized possessions.
Let me know what you think is standard for every one!
This rom has been modified ONLY for the G1/Dream (32b)

For those having problems i finally got mine to work by doing this. Mine is a UK phone i assume. (mobo unknown) It may or may not work for you, but i posted my solution just incase.
I Rooted the tradional way with the guide below BUT with the recovery.img in the second link. Forget the spl bit in that guide, thats latter.

Next skip to the following guide, in order!
My G1 refused to upgrade to the latest radio as instructed, instead i had to do it in steps, otherwise i got 'verification failed' Here is the place i got the radios from.
I upgraded in order, then followed the rest of the guide above, installing the generic rom as it tells you too.
Then finally at the bottom of the guide it tells you how to install any other rom, thats how i installed this froyo image.
No idea why it wouldnt work any other way, i must have spent 10hours messing about, i keep getting stuck on the G1 screen or verification errors, with this and most other roms. My old G1 didnt need all this pissing about, i have no clue whats going on.
Thank you all, and thank you for this rom.
