    Ok this is all data from XDA-Developers:

    Google Download: https://android.clients.google.com/u...-RC19+RC28.zip
    **This download might need to be refreshed once or twice before it works. If you get 503 server error, try again, if it doesn't work after a while use the links below.

    Rapidshare Download 1: http://rapidshare.com/files/15924331...-RC19_RC28.zip

    Rapidshare Download 2: http://rapidshare.com/files/15924473..._RC28.zip.html

    Rapidshare Download 3: http://rapidshare.com/files/159411433/update.zip.html

    Android-DLS.com: http://android-dls.com/forum/index.p...rb_v=viewtopic (Must be registered)

    Steps to upgrade:

    1: Download the file and rename/save it as update.zip (some users found just plain update works best (no .zip))

    2: Place the file on your mini SD card and insert it into your G1 (card formatting requirements still unknown, so if fat does not work, try fat32 and vice versa)

    3: With the phone off Hold down the "Home" and press the power button (end call) to turn the phone on (while still holding the home button)

    3: Wait for the following screen
    [​IMG]

    4: open your keyboard and press Alt+L

    5: When you see yellow text, pless Alt+S

    6: When it says "Installation Complete" you can press "Home" + "Back" to reboot.

    7: Wait for your phone to completely reboot and allow it to finish writing your radio rom during reboot, it may reboot multiple times.

    8: Enjoy

    These instructions are paraphrased from other users and are not written by me.

    Hope this works for everyone...

    Either way, I submitted it to Engadgetmobile.com. I gave credit to xda-developers, but I couldn't find the related link over there.
