Wow this would've definitely come in handy a few weeks ago. But what took me a few hrs to gather by reading posts this one thread explains it all. Glad you took the time to write this. Hopefully a more stable hero comes out too to update this thread with.

Hi! Good!!

When the phone reboots, you can hold home and power to boot into cyanogen. There is an option to upgrade from ext2 to ext3.

What recommends = ext2 or ext3

This partition is not created = linux-swap (32 MB)

Saludos!

OK .. I keep getting the same result.

When I restart the phone and the grey bootload screen comes up, it does a check and replies with "not allow" Anyone know what to do here?

Hey youneek great guide :) But could you put a warning for the flashing of haykuro's SPL? The SPL has a chance of bricking your phone if you don't have the latest radio and a PVT board. Even if you have both of those your phone can still be bricked :p Mind putting that up there for others? Thanks!

Excuse me. I'm just a newbie and going to buy a G1. You said G1 may be bricked during update without a PVT board. How can I check what the board is to avoid? and what's HardSPL?? Thanks a lot.

Youneek thanks for your reply,

Always at the step where I have downloaded the dreamimg file to the SDCard > shutdown the phone > then restart it holding the camera and power on buttons.

The grey 'bootloader' screen comes up, does a configuration check then flashes up the "not allow" message and dumps to the multi-coloured screen. At that point I have to pull the battery out to restart.

I'm going to go out today and purchase another SDCard. This one is a Sandisk 1mg card and I've read that certain Sandisk cards will not comply with 'rooting' instructions.

Cheers, elzee
