    I'm looking for a step by step guide for rooting my g1 so I can upgrade the firmware. rjght now it's 1.6. i want to have 2.0 or better. i tried it on my old g1 but the phone wouldnt let me format the sd card and i didnt have a computer to do it on. i need to know exactly how to format it on the computer. i love the simplicity of the g1 and really dont want to change. im still fairly computer illiterate but i have come a long way so far. help will definitely be appreciated.

    On a Windows system:

    Once the card is mounted, right click the drive and select Format. Ensure the dropbox is set to Fat32 and hit Format. Takes about 10 seconds on a Quick Format.
