    Sorry to burst your bubble, but I highly doubt the G1 will get updated to 2.0+.

    Just root. I still love it.

    We don't play with bubbles, We play with Android. The hackers already have ROMs for the G1 that are way past the 2.0 ! Why is Google so far behind ??? I am tired of waiting myself but I really do not want to root.

    I bought my G1 around 5 weeks ago off ebay in mint condition unlocked and i'm running it on AT&T (only carrier here unfortunatley). I have read these forums everyday im not working and trying to learn as much as i can (came from an HTC TyTN II Pro). So everything's new to me. What major advantages are there rooting a G1 as i'm sure we will not be getting any updates past the 1.6. I am not sure if my phone is already rooted or not. Here is the info on my phone:

    Model #- T Mobile G1

    Firmware Version
    1.6

    Baseband Version
    62.50SC.20.17H_2.22.23.02

    Kernal Version
    2.6.29-00479-g3c7d37
    android-build@apa26#19

    Build Number
    DMD64

    One more question.... The battery goes pretty quick and i have done all the things the nice folks in the forum suggested to other users to conserve battery life. When I go in under Battery Use and see " Whats Been Using the battery" it always says it's the display display, which I try to keep the display off even when charging. My Battery Widget is acting funny also, kinda jumps around from like 77% then hit display and it goes to 99%. This forum ROCKS! Everyone here tries their best to help new Android users and we all thank you for that!!!!

    No problem. Its Googles fault not yours. I will wait a few more months and then root and try these ROM's that everyone speaks well of. I work in Vietnam. If I lived in the USA I would have already done it. I have no protection over here. When my G1 got stolen in Cambodia it took me 3 months until someone could carry over a new one to me.
