    I have my T-Mobile G1 aka HTC Dream for a few days now and would like to flash one of these pretty Hero ROMs on it. I'm totally new to Android but with a lot of work I manged to downgrade my phone, root it, installing some kind of recovery image and a HardSPL.

    I will try to give as much information as possible:

    First of all it's a brand new German G-1 and I started off with the following:

    Firmware Version: 1.1
    Baseband Version:
    Kenel Version: 2.6.25-01843-gfea26b0 android-build@apa27 #6
    Build Number: 123099

    After I made a Goldcard and followed this guide I success completed these steps:

    Now my phone is as follows:

    Model number: T-Mobile G1
    Firmware version: 1.0
    Baseband version:
    Kernel version: 2.6.25-01843-gfea26b0 android-build@apa27 #6
    Build number: kila_uk-user 1.0 TC5-RC7 112931 ota-rel-keys,release-keys

    DREA110 PVT 32B
    HSPL10.95. 3000
    Oct 20 2008

    I have access to Window and Linux (Ubuntu) and three 2GB microSD cards.

    As I said I wanted to flash a Hero ROM to get the beautiful RosieUI however I read that one can easily brick in the process especially due to Haykuro's Danger SPL so I'm looking for someone to guide me step by step through it.

    I entered my IM details in my Profile if anyone wishes to contact me that way.

    I would greatly appreciate any help, I feel like I'm so close to a perfect Android Phone and just need a little push^^

    Thanks for any help in advance!
