    So I finally obtained root access on my G1....I think.
    I followed all of the directions and in the process tried to load the lateset ROM from Cyanogen.For a minute my phone showed his skateboarding android but then the screen just went black....for a long time. I eventually turned my phone off and rebooted and it returned from RC29 to dream_devphone-userdebug 1.6 DRC83. Now this is exciting enough for me because I have very limited knowledge in this arena and I have to admit that just seeing my phone model go from G1 to Android dev phone 1 makes me feel like I accomplished something, however now I really do not know what to do next. What I would really like to do is upload 2.0 when I can and although I would not mind a custom rom it is not neccassary. I would love it if someone could answer a few questions for me....here goes..

    #1. When I put the custom ROM and SPL on my SD card did I need too unzip them first ? or does my phone unzip them for me cause I think that the only reason I breifly seen the Cyanogen recovery img. Is because it was not zipped and the rest did not load because it was zipped....or am I just being retarted here.

    #2. Now that I have taken the terminal emulator from the market can I put the commands in there to upload custom ROMS?

    #3. can I put 2.0 on my phone yet?

    I have tons more questions but this will work for now....Thank You to anyone that can help.
