    Just for anyone that likes to play, or needs to reset their phone here is how

    if you power off your phone and hold the home (shaped like a house) and the end (red hangup button) for about 20 seconds you get a triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1

    after that if you open your keyboard and hold alt+L you'll get a menu that says:
    Android system recovery utility E: Can't open /cach/recover/command

    Home+Back reboot system now - (Soft Reboot)

    Alt+L - Toggle log text display - (Toggles between the exclamation and menu options)

    Alt+S - apply sdcard:update.zip - (Not brave enough yet)

    Alt+W - Wipe data/factory reset
    - (What I chose, had to re-register, out of the box settings)

    what's a "soft reboot" exactly? ... do you loose any of your settings or applications?

    Ive paid to unlock my G1 and use it on the 3 network. If i factory reset will i have to reinput the code etc or will it hold it?

    Hmmmm. I have the same question, but I do not see an answer.

    That is my G1 is unlocked. I am using it on ATT. I need to do a hard reset, or at least change the Google account used with it as I want to use that one with my new EVO on Sprint.

    I don't see a way to change the Google account without doing a hard reset. Is there a method to do this?

    I would like to be able to continue to use my G1 on ATT without having to unlock it again.
