    Nice demo, but I don’t see any instructions on how to do the update in the handy video.

    Yeah, that was more of a demonstration video, but it convinced me to at least give it a try :-). Here’s a link to the actual instructions:

      Those instructions are pretty light, if you haven’t flashed your G1 before.

      That’ll get you going on the current stable cyanogen (, and once you’re familiar with that process, you can modify the procedure (i.e. replace the DRC83 and 4.2.15 files with the EPE54B and 5.0) pretty easily.

      Danger of bricking, not liable, void your warranty, et cetera, et cetera.
