How to Update G1 Phone Firmware RC33

1. Download RC33 update from Google here.

2. Rename the download file from signed-PLAT-RC33-from-RC30.f06aa9b3.zip to update.zip, and place it at the root i.e the very top directory of your Micro SD card. (If you added the file to your microSD card by connecting the handset to your computer via USB [rather than using a dedicated microSD card reader], make sure to unmount it and disconnect the USB cable now.

3. Turn off your G1 Make sure it's completely powered off. Now again turn it on by holding the Home+End keys until you see T-Mobile G1 logo.

4. From the icon screen, open the keyboard and hit Alt+L.

5. Press Alt+S to begin the update. Remember, the update needs to be in the root of the Micro SD card and needs to be named update.zip.

6. Once it finishes, follow the onscreen instructions and press Home+Back to finish.

7. G1 Phone will reboot a few times to flash different parts of the firmware.

If all went well, you should now be running the latest update, RC33. Enjoy your new, shiny RC33 update, complete with Google Latitude!

To make sure all your hard work wasn't for nothing, hit Menu > Settings > About Phone > scroll to Build Number. You should see RC33 in there somewhere.

Can i downgrade my 3.55 ps3 want to upgrade from 80gb to 500gb


You can change the HDD without have to downgrade or upgrade your firmware. just make sure you have the oficial update in a flash drive formated as fat32, then just do a backup (for save-games) and change the Hard Drive.
If you use a custom firmware (like kmeaw) you cant sync yout trophies with the server (without some homebrews), so you will lose it.
Good luck.

Psp change my software


Once you upgrade, it's impossible to downgrade without the help of a crack program. I don't believe there is a downgrade crack program for 6.20 yet.

My G1 just informed me of a new update, after updating and restarting, my phone got to the android loading page then went blank. The phone is still on but nothing is happening


Maybe try doing the update yourself?

Try that, pretty sure it will work now.

You may have downloaded a corrupt version. I would try to either download it from another website, or just use the actual 1.6 update. Here is how you can manually do it:

My ps3 wont play my new games anymore after my latest system update when i went online. these games were playing b4 and play on other ps3s and all other games play still no prob. how can i reset my os...


you need to find the firmware you had before the update and downgrade it again, you can perform the downgrade using a cd with firmware on it, make sure you have a look on the sony website for instructions on performing a manual upgrade (should be the same process as downgrade)
