There's actually a radio image too, but I don't know anything about it, other than it's handled differently than the 6 partition above.


The zip file for the RC29 update has an image file for recovery and boot, plus the entire contents of the system folder. The cache and userdata partitions aren't "critical", in the sense that you can wipe them and the phone will still boot up and function. (I think )

I felt a necro of this thread was appropriate for the 5th anniversary of the G1 (Dream). Just think of what you get for $399 these days...

HTC G1 vs LG Nexus 5

HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY G1 !

Oddly enough the feature missing from a "Google phone" after all these years is expandable storage.

Please read this entire thread, it is pretty entertaining to see the beginnings of ROM dumps and such.
