    ...hmmm that looks like it going to be way to involved for me to understand...i guess I was looking for someone who has already done it and would guide me through the steps of getting it on my G1...oh well, guess i'll just have to wait for the push from Google.

    Well if you haven't rooted your phone then you wouldn't be able to do it anyway ... you can find a guide to rooting on this forum ..

    It is easy man..... follow the directions from here : http://androidforums.com/developer-101/3252-rooting-quick-guide-updated-3-10-09-a.html (you will need to d/l telnet from the market) but instead of using JFv1.42_RC33 use this http://sapphire-port-dream.googlecode.com/files/5.0.1Gr3-signed.zip instead... if you don't like it or have issues simply repeat repeat steps 4 and 5 with the JFv1.42 and radio and you will return the phone to a "ROOTED" RC33 build... really easy to do just looks and sounds hard......
