    Hello, so i'm pretty new to these boards, and I couldn't really find any threads that answer my question. I'm also new at rooting btw.

    Full Update Guide - G1/Dream Firmware to CyanogenMod - CyanogenMod Wiki

    So I was using that guide^ to help me root the phone, and I was at the flashing process, under the sub heading Flash Android1.6 & CyanogenMod latest, and i am on step 5. I can't seem to find that zip file.... :(

    all that is displayed on my phone is ota-radio-2_22_19_26I and update-cm-, these are the only zip files I can seem to load.

    The guide tells me that I should load the zip named signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-ota-14721.zip, but in none of the previous steps does it tell me to download that zip file. It seems that the zip is a combination of the radio image and cyanogen firmware. But I can't find it and I really don't want to brick my phone so any help would be appreciated!

    The link to download it is in FILE DOWNLOAD section step 1. (above where you are on the page). I went to that link and the all the links are broken.

    I will keep looking for a link to the correct file or I could try to e-mail it to you. If you want to try you can pm me your e-mail.

    Ugh.. I thought I was going crazy. The download links are gone for me as well.

    Was trying to do the Cyanogen mod upgrade myself, but couldn't figure out where to actually download the signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-ota-14721.zip file. Anyone have any info or a link?

    I posted in the comments of the newest update about the problem. It was the only place I could find at the time.

    If anyone needs the file I can try to e-mail it. Just send me a PM.

    ohh thanks! So i am not the only one with this problem! And thanks for the replies! I didn't think I was descriptive enough and that no one would get what I was saying :p

    And yes, I realize that they have a website, but most of the links on there are broken aswell.

    And kabbie, could you just post the link on this thread? Like maybe upload the file to Megaupload or something? So that other people with the same problem can be helped aswell :) but if thats against the rules or something, or if you just don't want to, then suure, i'll PM my e-mail to you :)

    I just downloaded the recovery image from the cyanogen website without issue.

    Oh never mind wrong recovery image. (stupid naming IMO)

    Let me get the link.

    Guess I rooted at the right time. The link is most definitely gone while I have a copy on my HD(incase we need it later).

    I suspect its either a glitch or they are mad at cyanogen again.

    YES! I found it :D all right, so I downloaded the radio image instead of the recovery image! DUR, now the link they gave was broken, but I managed to find a site that with the downloads!


    (Its the one with OTA at the end)

    yess! Thanks for the replies and all your help guys! :)

    Heres hoping the mod works!

    Thanks for those that posted other links. I looked for a couple hours last night and must have just missed finding them.

    Hope every one gets their root going.
