If it keeps rebooting itself at the G1 and Android screen, you might want to factory reset the phone and clear all the data as there may be a virus. To do this, when turning on the phone, hold the home button and the power button even while the G1 screen comes up. Keep holding these until an image with a triangle comes up. You will then wait 5-10 seconds, and press the home and power button again together. This will bring up the OS screen, and provide you 4 options. One of these options is to wipe and restore to factory. Do this and your phone should work fine after you reboot again.
If the G1 is stuck on an error or startup screen you can go to this link save it to your desktop and then unzip it, copy it to a memory card insert the card into the phone and then follow these instructions. http://android-roms.googlecode.com/f...3_Recovery.zip 1. The device must be powered OFF to perform this reset. If the device is on, turn it off. ? Note: If the device is not responsive and does not turn off, remove the battery and re-insert it. 2. Press and hold the Home button and the Power button (the red hang-up button) at the same time. 3. Keep holding Home and Power together for at least 25 seconds, even if the "Startup" screen appears. 4. Release the keys when you see a black screen with a warning sign. 5. Slide the keyboard open. 6. As a shortcut, press ALT+W to factory reset the device. If this does not work, continue with the below steps. 7. Press ALT+L. 8. Press Alt+S to apply the recovery. ?this is what you put on the memory card? 9. Press the Home + Back key.
I solved this problem by booting into SAFE MODE on the G1:
Press Menu Button and Switch on the G1 Phone using Power button. (Do not release menu Key).
That Got it to turn on. but upon power down it did the same thing with blue light. So I always start in SAFE MODE. I will start uninstalling programs until i find out which one is causing problem.
The solution is this: Try taking out the battery put it back in. press and hold the power+home butto. a screen will show then press the power and home button agian. It will then give you a choise to whip out ur memery to factory settings and it should work after.
Easy i just figured it out with my g1 and g2 both with the same problem. The solution is this: Try taking out the battery put it back in. press and hold the power+home butto. a screen will show then press the power and home button agian. It will then give you a choise to whip out ur memery to factory settings and it should work after.
Have you tried a reset using the hardware buttons? To perform this, you need to turn off the phone first. While it is off, press and hold the home key and the power key at the same time. Keep holding the buttons until you see a screen with a triangle and an exclamation point in the middle. Once you see the triangle, let go of the buttons and open the keyboard. Press ALT+W at the same time, and the phone should reset.
well plug the charger into the phone with the battery still intact.....then remove the battery while the phone is still plugged in. then unplug the charger and plug it back in........place battery back into phone and then power it up. That worked for me.
Please follow these steps: - turn off the phone by holding down the red key for a few seconds and selecting "power off" on the screen - open the keyboard - remove the back cover of the phone by pressing with your finger on the left of the keyboard - remove the battery!
