Android: 0wn3r3D

Unfortunately, getting root on continental european g1 is not exactly
easy. You need to create so-called goldcard; to do that, you need
Windows Mobile smartphone and Windows desktop machine. Ouch.

That lets you install rc7, which contains the well-known hole you can
use to get root. Then you can install hacked recovery.img, and whole new image. Installing hacked fastboot (the one with dancing androids) is also handy.

I would like to thank all the people from
adroidforum.cz and xda-developers.
