Updating g1

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.

If you want to know where to download it and how to update the firmware on your G1, then follow along after the break!

Sometimes things like firmware updates can feel daunting if you are trying to do it manually.

It requires reverting back to RC29 ROM (downgrading back to 1.0), and having ADB and HTC drivers installed on your PC.

The reason for installing RC29 is that this version has a flaw that treats anything you type as if it was typed into the Terminal. If the update you applied failed, you most likely would be at the "android" boot and it would just loop, or you'd have a black screen.

The G1 firmware update software, and new firmware update files are available now from the Godox Download Page.

NOTE – Firmware files downloaded using the Internet Explorer browser are for some reason changed to a file extension, instead of the regular file type.

I've received two upgrades since getting my phone in April.
