Hi guys,

also bought a EU G1 in Germany today. It has a modified .29 version where you cant get root access.

Its also not possible to flash to another .29 version as some other people in this thread already explained.

So my question is: what _exactly_ (in technical terms) did you do so that the original spl accepts the firmware you can download in the first post to flash back to a root bug enabled .29 version?

Some checksum that has to be right for the original spl/whatever?

Maybe if someone can explain the exact details how this was done i can redo it for the EU version.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks!
Well, I havent used these forums in almost 2 years. Spent a lot of time browsing them right after I got my Wizard a long time ago.

Just wanted to say that your post brought me back here. I've had my G1 for a while now, but I just got around to rooting it. Your process is amazingly easy to understand and in case anyone was wondering, it still works fine even after doing the OTA upgrade to RC33.

Indeed, my thanks to the writer of the article. This process worked flawlessly, and allows the use of JesusFreake's excellent modified firmware files. The other thing to note is that this process is surprisingly easy to perform as well.

So http://androidcommunity.com/jkv141-r...dies-20090206/ says that this version has auto-rotate.

I installed JF's rc33 and I'm not seeing the auto-rotate. How do I turn it on?

You have to go to the market and download droidsans then enable auto rotate in that app and reboot.

I am in the middle of gaining root right now. I just flashed my phone down to RC29.
I am on the whiteish-grayish screen where it says

"Update complete
UPDATE SUCCESS, press action key.

I have tried to restart. Tried holding down Call+Menu+End....nothing happening.

Not sure how to get it to reboot and I don't want to remove the battery and mess up anything.

Anyone have any ideas?

Are you sure? Cuz I read somewhere where someone removed the battery when he was stuck and pretty much bricked his phone by doing that. I really ddon't want that to happen.

Can anyone else confirm this?

EDIT: Got it to reboot by clicking the trackball and thaan pressing Call+Menu+End.
