    Let's try and keep it all in one thread guys, so let us know when you get the OTA update.

    I got the update today here in Austin... and it crashed my phone! If anyone of you is using the aHome app, your in for quite a (lousy) suprise.

    Also.. I dont see any major changes in this update other than how the Market looks...

    Yeah. For anyone else using aHome...make sure you remove the defaults before you download the update.

    No, it's not going to delete any of your installed apps, settings or personal data.

    First, I received the update around 6am on 10/3/09.

    I was running aHome ... so i said install later ...

    I then went into settings and applications and did a force close on aHome ...

    Then went to About phone and did update reboot/install ...

    All went well ... I always do updates fully charged and usually connected to power...

    Here is the current phone Info:

    Model number : T-Mobile G1
    Firmware Version : 1.6
    Baseband Version : 65.505.20.17H_2.22.19.26I
    Kernel Version : 2.6.29-00479-g3c7df37
    Build number : DRC83

    =================================

    new Market is working...
    New google search and voice search is working nicely ...
    speak "jim" and it loads many selections including the contacts for all jim's in my phone ... "cvs" need some drugs :) ... nearest store ...
    "weather washington d c ... perfect returned info ....

    ===================================

    So now i said let's try aHome ...

    Started it and BOOOM!!! Error and force close loop ...

    MENU button would not call up settings...
    so resorted to POWER ... cleared force close and then POWER off

    Now restart the phone in "Safe Mode" : hold MENU key and touch POWER to begin process ...
    Continue to hold the MENU key ... Until you can see in transparent text in the lower left hand corner "Safe mode"

    Now you can press MENU again to get to settings ...
    Applications ... aHome and then scroll down and do a "Force Stop" under controls ...
    this will kill aHome and now you can return to normal operation ...
    You will still be in safe mode ... so reboot the phone and you should now be OK .. as you will not have aHome starting up ... and you will have the stock 3 pages of Android ....

    =========================

    Hopefully aHome will have this fixed soon ...

    A couple quick questions about this. Is this update for G1 only? Has anyone gotten the update with their MyTouch? Also If I have my phone rooted can I install this update? Or will it mess things up? Thank you.

    thanks justjimjpc

    I had to uninstall aHome to get it started. Force stop was not able to kill aHome.

    I hope aHome will provide a fix and also I will be able to install it again without paying again

    I suppose they have to make a version compatible with those phones.
    the g1 is special because it has a keyboard (I'm guessing)


    anyway, I'm trying to take screenshots with an app called PicMe but I don't know how
    it says I need ***ROOT*** access and enabled access to lower level graphics.
    how do I do that?

    We have to have an SD card to access Camera, and Music now?? That's lame...

    I don't remember, but our phones didn't come with SD cards right??

    Because i just replaced my phone, and I don't know if i had an SD card in there or not to put in my new one.. don't remember.

    Actually, yes, we always needed an sd card
    That's where all the pictures and music were saved
    Many apps also required the sd card
    The phone comes with a 1 gb sd card when you purchase it
