Updating g1 - monaco dating friends
I have a T-Mobile G1 phone (Dev Phone) with android 1.0.
Most likely it will be possible, but they probably won't support it...
I've received two upgrades since getting my phone in April.
I believe Android is a platform on top of which the phone carriers build their specific release.
Now it wants me to login to my gmail account to boot up. I believe in the newer versions of android, one can skip logging in to Google.
But now I cannot even "adb shell" to copy other update files to the SD card. Thanks, The T-Mobile G1 and the ADP1 are different phones, which do you have?
On your G1, everything you type on your keyboard is also being run in a hidden console with root permissions. Note: There are 2 ways to install the test keys, one is from the SD card and the other one is using ADB (from the android SDK).
I recommend using the SD card method because this is easier for non-developers.
General instructions for updating to a new firmware (Outdated, new Jesusfreke firmwares are available) Its now time to install the custom firmware.
Currently there are three flavours available: If you are a normal user that wants to have root access, install RC8.
Pioneering T-Mobile G1 owners have been enjoying the spoils of Android 1.5 (or Cupcake, as it's known 'round these parts) for months now, but it looks as if that very treat will be the last taste of confectionery goodness that the smartphone gets.
According to Android software engineer Dave Sparks, a time is soon coming when devs "wont be able to fit the latest [Android] release on the G1's internal flash," and yet another engineer has chimed in via Twitter to say that he "can't promise" that any update after 1.5 will fit.
The reason you can't get an ADB connection is almost certainly because the "USB Debugging" settings has been switched off during the upgrade, you'd need to get into the settings and turn that back on again.
