    Just got the OTA update this morning, all the updates are pretty cool however the orientation of the screen doesn't seem to change when I tilt the phone. Has anyone else had a problem with this?

    Yeah...you need to turn on the setting...

    Settings --> Sound and Display

    Well, I just finished rooting and updating to JF 1.5. I'll have to admit, since I'm not well versed in Linux it was a frightening experience (I'd really hate to brick my phone.)

    I have a couple of questions though. I see people remarking about the background of the notification bar being different. Mine looks exactly the same as before. Is this a feature of the OTA update only? I'm confused.

    Also, since I reformatted my SD card to flash the updates, should I reformat it back to FAT? Or is it ok to leave it as FAT32??

    Other than that, this build looks awesome. I love the keyboard and the music widget. I'm in cupcake heaven!!!!

    Edit: One more thing, when I was doing the video tutorial, he held the start button to power off the phone and one of the options was for vibrate mode. I don't have this. What gives?

    I have not seen any comments here on AF about Notif_bar being diff...??

    Just leave it FAT32 ... it is fine and you may want to install other builds in the future

    I dont know about the "vibrate - mode " thing ???

    As T-Mobile continues to improve customers' G1 experience, Android 1.5 will begin rolling out to T-Mobile G1 customers the week of May 11. The over-the-air (OTA) update will include many new feature enhancements and updates. The OTA will be sent out in phases with all customers receiving by the end of May. On screen full QWERTY keyboard with dictionary
    Video record and playback capabilities
    Easy uploading of photos to Picasa and videos to YouTube
    Faster camera start-up and image capture
    Faster acquisition of GPS location
    Smoother page scrolling in Browser
    Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP and AVCRP profiles) and auto pairing
    In-call keypad timeout - keypad locks instead of displaying a dark screen
    Alternate e-mail required on device when creating a new Gmail account
    User interface updates and modifications making the G1 easier to use and navigate.

    Although customers may have heard an announcement regarding availability of Android 1.5 for the T-Mobile G1 in Europe, T-Mobile USA is working to provide the best customer experience and will begin rolling out Android 1.5 to customers at a later date. Customers and developers can find more information on Android 1.5 on the T-Mobile Forums.
    Note: Although customers may have seen workarounds to download a new Android software update, doing so will prevent the Android 1.5 over the air update to be received on customers' G1 devices.

    This post is LONG overdue, but i'm glad you did post it... where did you get this message?

    it was on the official t-mobile forum site from an employee of tmo, ironically when i went back to get the url to post it, it was removed for "rule violation" so it makes me think it has some validity

    They fact that they removed it makes you think it was valid? Huh?
