If you currently have a JF rom and are upgrading to the latest (1.51 right now) then follow the steps here, if not skip to the next section.
+
-
#Download [http://android-dls.com/files/jf/temp/JFv1.51_CRB43-US.zip JF's US G1 Cupcake 1.51 ROM] for US users or [http://android-dls.com/files/jf/temp/JFv1.51_CRB43-EU.zip JF's UK G1 Cupcake 1.51 ROM] for UK users or [http://android-dls.com/files/jf/temp/JFv1.51_CRB43-ADP.zip JF's ADP Cupcake 1.51 ROM] if you have an ADP1 to /sdcard and rename it to update.zip (when you are done it should be "/sdcard/update.zip").
+
-
#Power off your phone (hold power and select "Power Off"), and hold down home while you turn the power back on.
+
-
#When you enter the recovery console (which should say "using test keys" if your modified recovery was flashed correctly) hit "alt+L" and then "alt+S" on your keyboard. This will flash the update.zip file that you downloaded and placed there. If you have any problems with this step you missed something above.
+
-
 
+
-
==Downgrade to RC29==
+
-
The first step is to downgrade so you can obtain root access.
+
-
 
+
-
#Download the [http://android-dls.com/files/upload/DREAIMG.nbh RC29 NBH] file if you are in the US or the [http://android-dls.com/files/upload/uk/DREAIMG.NBH RC7 NBH] file if you are in the UK.
+
-
#Place this file on your sd card (it is best if you format the card to FAT32 before this step, if you run into errors try that).
+
-
#Turn the device power off and make sure your sd card is inserted.
+
-
#Hold down the camera button while you turn on your phone to enter bootloader.
+
-
#Press the power button to start flashing the image file.
+
-
#After it finishes, press the trackball and perform a soft reset by pressing "Call" + "Menu" + "End" to reboot.
+
-
 
+
-
==Obtain Root==
+
-
#Once your phone boots to the desktop hit the <enter> key twice and then type "telnetd" and press <enter> again.
+
-
#Download [http://android-dls.com/files/apps/Telnet.apk Android Telnet client] (ConnectBot, other telnet clients do not seem to work properly when initially gaining root), run it and connect to "localhost". If you are unable to connect, try steps 1 and 2 over again until you can. Also, you can try doing a factory wipe (alt+w in the recovery menu) and retrying if all else fails.
+

==Install JF's ROM==
+
-
#Download [http://android-dls.com/files/jf/temp/JFv1.51_CRB43-US.zip JF's US G1 Cupcake 1.51 ROM] for US users or [http://android-dls.com/files/jf/temp/JFv1.51_CRB43-EU.zip JF's UK G1 Cupcake 1.51 ROM] for UK users or [http://android-dls.com/files/jf/temp/JFv1.51_CRB43-ADP.zip JF's ADP Cupcake 1.51 ROM] if you have an ADP1 to /sdcard and rename it to update.zip (when you are done it should be "/sdcard/update.zip").
+
-
#*To make sure the update is named correctly, in the terminal you opened earlier, type
+
-
#**ls /sdcard/update*
+
-
#*If you see a file named update.zip, then it is named correctly. However, if you see a file named update.zip.zip, type the following command
+
-
#**mv /sdcard/update.zip.zip /sdcard/update.zip
+
-
#Download the [http://android-dls.com/files/jf/AndroidMod.zip modified recovery] and unzip it. Place the file "recovery_testkeys.img" in /sdcard
+
-
#In the terminal you opened earlier (with root access) Enter the following commands in to flash the modified recovery
+
-
#*mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
+
-
#*rm -f /system/recovery.img
+
-
#*flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery_testkeys.img
+
-
#Reboot your phone (completely, do not enter recovery yet or your neighbors dog might die)
+
-
#Once fully rebooted, power off your phone (hold power and select "Power Off"), and hold down home while you turn the power back on.
+
-
#When you enter the recovery console (which should say "using test keys" if your modified recovery was flashed correctly) hit "alt+L" and then "alt+S" on your keyboard. This will flash the update.zip file that you downloaded and placed there. If you have any problems with this step you missed something above.
