Updating tmobile g1 software
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.
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.
You can follow this guide to bypass the activation screen.
If everything went well, you are now a proud owner of a rooted G1. If the login fails, you might need to add your APN settings (use the Menu button to add a new APN profile).
If you don’t have a dataplan, it is also possible to use wifi to sign in. Before we can install a custom firmware we need to install the test sign keys.
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?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.I have a T-Mobile G1 phone (Dev Phone) with android 1.0.To be able to install some apps, I needed to update it to 1.6.
