You need root for that. Besides, mt3g is on froyo now.


Of course it's need to be rooted, I was just answering to this:

He says that he have 1.6 on a rooted G1, and he ask for help because he can't get Rom Manager from market.

I also have a MT3G and sometimes I need to get to stock firmware for sorting things out, froyo was an update not the original firmware, the stock android version of MT3G is 1.6.

Gotcha. Hate to be that guy, but original mt3g/g1 firmware was cupcake, android 1.5.

There should be some simple recovery flashers on the market, try those?

I know this is an older thread. Trying to root a cheap Black Friday tablet, can someone re-upload universalandroot.apk?

    This is a guide on how to root your phone and install a custom ROM using Universal AndRoot. It supports several phone models and is the simplest way to root a phone I have ever seen. It features a 1 click root and a 1 click unroot option. Rooting with this method does NOT affect your bootloader, therefore if your phone needs serviced you can (theoretically, I have not verified this to be true) simply unroot and restore to normal.

    As always myself, XDA, ROM developers, your friends, your mom, the rulers of the world and the developers of this app are NOT responsible for any bricks YOU create by taking the risk of rooting your phone. Also there are no guarantees that your warranty will not be null and void. If you NEED your warranty, DO NOT root your phone. Use at your own risk!

    SUPPORTED DEVICE LIST

    Google Nexus One (2.2)
    Google G1 (1.6)
    HTC Hero (2.1)
    HTC Magic (1.5) (Select Do not install Superuser)
    HTC Magic 1.2 (1.6)
    HTC Tattoo (1.6)
    Dell Streak (2.1)
    Motorola Milestone (2.1)
    Motorola XT701
    Motorola XT800 (2.1)
    Motorola ME511
    Motorola Charm
    Motorola Droid (2.01/2.1/2.2 with FRG01B)
    Sony Ericsson X10 (1.6)
    Sony Ericsson X10 Mini (1.6)
    Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro (1.6)
    Acer Liquid (2.1)
    Acer beTouch E400 (2.1)
    Samsung Galaxy Beam
    Samsung galaxy 5 (gt-i5500)
    Vibo A688 (1.6)
    Lenovo Lephone (1.6)
    LG GT540 (1.6)
    Gigabyte GSmart G1305

    First we will gather the items needed to complete this process.
    Universal AndRoot Version 1.6.1 is the newest STABLE release. The newest version is 1.6.2 beta 5, which is where the updated list above comes from and is said to be very close to the final release version.
    Next go to the Android Market and install AppInstaller (there are a few versions including appsInstaller by modmymobile, all are free)
    While in the market, also grab ROM Manager (also free)
    Next download the ROM you would like to use. I personally recommend CyanogenMod 6.0.0 DS - stable. This link will take you to the Cyanogen downloads section where you will have to select your phone and search for the ROM you want.
    While you are there, also grab the Google Addon pack for your phone.
    Of course it is up to you to choose a ROM you like. You can also keep your stock ROM if you choose.

    Lets Begin!
    Install the Universal AndRoot .apk file, the ROM you chose and the Google Addon to the root of your microSD card

    Open AppInstaller and let it locate your AndRoot .apk on your microSD. Select it and install it to your phone.

    Open Universal AndRoot from you app menu. It should read your phone and show your firmware version. Click the "Root" button and let it do it's thing. It really only takes a minute or 2. When finished it will let you know. Congratulations, at this point you are now rooted.

    Now for a custom ROM!

    Open ROM Manager. Install Recovery. The default recovery for ROM Manager is ClockworkMod Recovery (which is what I am using) but a lot of people seem to like RA Recovery. This option is at the bottom of ROM Manager under "Flash Alternate Recovery". Whichever you choose, let the Recovery flash.

    Next choose "Backup Current ROM", then "Reboot Into Recovery" (for future reference, you can also get into recovery mode by turning your phone off, then hold down the "home" button hit the power button. continue hold home as it powers on.)

    Chose "wipe data/factory reset" then "wipe cache partition". This step is important. I know from personal experience if you don't do this you may end up in a bootscreen loop!

    Choose "install zip from sdcard". Navigate to the ROM you loaded on your microSD and flash it.

    After the phone reboots (which can take a few minutes the first time after flashing a new firmware version) go back to ROM Manager and again choose "Reboot Into Recovery". Once in recovery, again choose "install zip from sdcard". Navigate to the Google Addon pack on your microSD and install it.

    Once you are rooted and running your new ROM, go into ROM Manager and partition your sd card. This is optional.

    That is it. You should be good to go! Way easier and faster than the old goldcard method!

    This is my first XDA guide. I hope it is up to your standards!
