Okay, I used a G1 since October 20th, and rooted a few months later when I felt the process was easy enough and could be reversed. I'm not sure how long it'll take on the myTouch, but I'm thinking I'll wait and keep my G1 by my side for Tethering purposes, only because I'm scared to death of breaking the ROM. I mean, we don't even have the original ROM do we? Or at least the SAPPIMG.NBH with all of the myTouch factory software on it? The DREAIMG.NBH used to get back to RC29 was a life saver whenever I goofed things up on my G1. I'd just reflash it from the phone, on the road, and then could do all the rooting on the device. The biggest problem I'm running into is that I'm stuck on a 4 yr old iBook G4, so making the goldcard is going to be weird. I'll probably have to find a way to do it through MS VirtualPC with Windows XP and turn on USB pass-through. Any ideas?
Does anyone know of a way to backup the myTouch ROM before digging in too deep? I love nandroid's capabilities, and the cyanogen recovery 1.4 is of GREAT use on my G1, is it compatible with the myTouch? I'm sure some of this is available by digging through the threads, but this computer's 800x600 screen size is KILLING me (the laptop display cracked, so I'm stuck on an external monitor, and maximum output is 800x600)
Plus, if I have to do any exchanges, it's best to keep everything at factory before sending it in. And I will definitely need to do that should I have any problems. So a factory SAPPIMG would be great. Know how to get ahold of one? Anyone?
