    Hi again,
    I am a new member of this forum and i need some help..
    I tried to update my G1 to 1.5 with the tutorial Sweed gave:
    "How To Manually Install Android 1.5 Cupcake"
    I downloaded the update.zip file, put it in my SD card, reboot my phone and after pressing alt-L and alt-S something went wrong :(:(

    Code (Text):
    1. Installing from sdcard...
    2. Finding update package...
    3. Opening update package...
    4. Verifying update package...
    5. [COLOR=Red]E: No signature (409 files)
    6. E: Verification failed
    7. Installation aborted.[/COLOR]
    Anyone knows what is the problem here???

    sounds like your using an unofficial build and your not rooted.
    you can only use official builds if your not rooted
    find an official google signed build

    the google signed builds are the easiest to install.
    I can't right now, but if you can't find it I'll dig it up for you.

    I'm not the one to talk to about rooting since I still haven't rooted my g1 (I'll do it eventually xD) but once your rooted you can use custom roms that weren't made by google, like cyanogen or the hacked version of htc sense on your g1.

    sorry I kinda forgot about this.
    did you ever find it?
    to get updated to 1.5 follow step 3 (only step 3) with the download given there.
    after you've don that you'll be at 1.5 and i'll explain how to get to 1.6
