No recovery and bootloader means you have a brick.

Only jtag or mobo replacement is the solution to that. At this point in time, I think it is cheaper and simpler to grab another phone.

best to just go all the way to a custom rom as there are so many faster with more features than stock on these old phones. google search "cyanogen wiki g1 root" you will find all the info there, with up to date links, how to downgrade, root, install custom recovery, upgrade radio and hboot, then flash a custom rom. follow everything to running cm5, after this you will have to do more steps to get the latest and greatest but all this needs to be done first.
if you get stuck search a bit, if you still confused start a new thread in the q&a and many will come and help
good luck!

So I'm sure I'm beating a dead horse here but funny story. We bought a new couch and while we were disposing of the old I found the t-mobile g1 inside. Not sure if I bought it and lost it or if it was just in there because we also found a pouch of dip from ages ago. Anyways on with the beating of a dead horse. I've gotten a new firmware installed but just can't seem to get the root. I've tried a few different links on here and they're all dead. So is cyanogen mods wiki links. Does anyone happen to have the needed files lurking on an old computer somewhere?
