Yesterday I held a german G1 in my Hand. There is no build no. containing the "RC" string, only a 5 or 6 digit number starting with 12 as far as I can remember. So forget "RC30" or "RC8" for comparision purposes.
Here in Austria is the same and before i have checkt thats is a "ProblemVersion" i have testet so much things! With the Terminal Emulator, the ConnectBot adn Telnet and also the SDK Emulator! But nothing helps to be a root user or flash my G1! So please help my and find a way!
I'd be happy to get a german image to put on my US-phone (RC30), as I am living in Germany and bought the phone a few weeks ago in the US. Rooted would be perfect, but the "regular" image would do for now.
