Yeah I can still go into recovery mode. Maybe I am not leaving the G1 screen long enough, but I left it for like 20 minutes and it was still on the G1 screen. I had CM 4.2.3.1 before, and I didn't wipe, and now I can't even root it again. I can get to stock, but when I try to root it and flash a new rom, even my old CM rom, it lags at the G1 screen, or says signature verification failed
if you still into recovery mode then you are still rooted, you will prolly have to wipe everything and format ya sd card then cause maybe be problems with ya partitions. i know the 4.2.5 rom takes a good while to get off the boot screen when you first flash it or any new rom for the matter.


this is why i told yall n*ggas to use nandroid backup and yall wouldnt have this problem in case somethin went wrong

I may give it another shot then. Another thing, when I get to recovery mode, it only shows three blue options instead of the green list. Any idea why?

i never seen that before, i think it would be best to just start off fresh and unroot cause that dont sound good

Ok, I just went ahead and rooted, what it was I think, is I was on a stock Cupcake install. So I rooted with the flash image, now I am about to load the custom SPL. Crossing my fingers hoping it works

guess you should just unroot and start from scratch, maybe its because you interrupted it the first time you was bootin 4.2.5

Flash Android 1.6 & CyanogenMod 4.2.5/4.1.9999

You will now install the actual OS of the phone. First you will install the legal Google apps, and then you will install CyanogenMod on top of those apps.

1. Turn your phone off.
2. Hold the Home button while booting to get to Recovery mode.
3. If you wish to have an option to return to your factory settings, select nandroid backup now. If not, continue.
4. Press Alt-W (or select "wipe data/factory reset")Press home to confirm
5. Press Alt-A (or select "apply any zip from sd")
* Dream (G1): signed-dream_devphone_userdebug-ota-14721.zip
* Magic32A / Magic32B (MyTouch): See This Page
6. Press home to confirm and let installation complete
7. STOP - DO NOT REBOOT YOUR PHONE
8. Once again, press Alt-A (or select "apply any zip from sd")
* Dream (G1): update-cm-4.2.5-signed.zip
* Magic32A / Magic32B (MyTouch): See This Page
9. Press home to confirm and let installation complete
10. When this is complete, reboot your phone by pressing Home & Back.
11. Wait. Your phone will say writing radio image and then reboot. This will take a couple of minutes. Be patient!
12. If the phone enters Recovery mode after rebooting, press Home & Back again to reboot it once more. You should see the blue CyanogenMod Android logo this time.
Just tried this method. Now the phone went to a screen with a box, with an arrow coming out if it going into a G1, then rebooted. Now its at the G1 screen again, then went to recovery. Gonna reboot one more time and hope it works

Holy crap it actually went past the G1 screen. I wanna flash a theme now, but I am afraid to lol. Do the themes that worked for 4.2.3.1 work on 4.2.5?


EDIT: Went ahead and flashed the theme anyway. Worked, thank God. I am now an avid user of Nandroid, lol. Thanks for all the help Venom

That looks nice. But why would you wanna make it look like stock 2.0? lol. I think thats stock, anyway yeah...Whats new in 2.0? Is the G1 capable of running eclair or not? And rooting your phone is kinda like jailbreaking your iphone (I think). Freedom to theme it, more memory, root access, screenshots, and some other nifty stuff. My main reason was it is way faster, and I like being able to theme my phone. I don't like anything stock when it comes to electronics, lol

EDIT: Where did u get that battery meter? That is awesome. And dude, you need to charge your f**kin phone, lol
