T-Mobile G1 quite unofficially receives the Froyo update
T-Mobile G1 is the handset from which the Android revolution originated. That revolution, for good or for worse, changed the smartphone game. Now you have low-end, mid-end and high-end devices with Android on board and this is the mobile OS with the greatest momentum. That's why for all these Android worshippers, the G1 has that special place as the first phone that showed what the little green robot is capable of.

Now the word came from the XDA-Developers Forums that the Froyo ROM from myTouch 3G is ported to the T-Mobile G1. According to this report, Android 2.2 works all well and fine on the G1 and this just shows what a brilliant handset this one is.

To get the Froyo treatment for your G1, your device has to be rooted, along with two other requirements – your T-Mobile G1 to have the 1.33.2005 dangers SPL and 2.22 radio. For more information visit the XDA through the link below.
