    Hi, Im new to rooting but i'm having alot of problems. i have a mytouch 3g

    Ive looked at every post on many many different sites and nothing has helped.

    I try an downgrade to 1.5 but when i get to the screen (using volume down and power) it says the version i have is older and doesnt run it.

    I loaded a apk and installed it. when i click backup revoery image it says failed...

    when i click the "hidden" button on the right, and click flash 1.4...it says falsh failed.

    i tried loading a recovery image and typing it into the screen and it still says failed.

    I am competely lost. I want to put on this 2.1 ROM that i found that has the camera working an everything but i cant figure it out.

    Someone please email me at pwrlifting79@gmail.com with the intructions or what im doing wrong. I rerally want 2.1 on my mytouch 3g

    Why would you even try the apk (I assume this is the one-click root) if you aren't on 1.5?

    Only have a G1 (currently looking for good prices on eBay/Craigslist for MT3G), so can't help you much.

    Pretty sure that's what the Goldcard is for.
