    Hello Friend,

    It's unfortunate that you got your Phone bricked during the process of upgrading.However If you would have elaborated the kind of problem you are facing on your Phone It would have been more helpful.Nevertheless I'll try to give a generalised solution which may be helpful to you :-

    1)Turn Off Your Phone


    2)Take out the SD card and put it into an SD card reader so that you can view it from our computer. If you can't view the SD card on your computer then get a new SD card.


    3)Download DREAIMG-RC29.zip file and unzip it.


    4)Format the SD card to FAT32 and copy the DREAIMG.nbh onto it and eject the card.


    5)Put the SD card back into your Phone.

    6)Wipe The Phone:- Hold home and press the power button. When you see the image of an ! mark in a triangle, open keyboard of your Phone and press Alt + L if you cannot see any command options.


    7)Do a factory reset by pressing Alt + W or just using the trackball.


    8)Once the reset is finished, Hold the camera button and select the reboot system now option with the trackball.

    9)Flash The Phone and follow the prompted onscreen instructions to complete the flashing.


    Your phone is now unbricked and you can have a another go at upgrading or can also use official Android.


    Hope It Helps!

    I am not sure about problem but i thing you should upgrade again
    to your phone. For update you should follow the following easy
    steps:-

    1. The first step is to download custom Froyo E-xtreme ROM for HTC G1
    and G-Apps Add-on and save them on your Desktop.
    2. Now Connect your phone to the computer and mount SD Card.
    3. Copy both the downloaded files to SD card root and reboot your phone
    in recovery mode.
    4. Now Full Wipe the device by wiping cache, data, delvik cache etc.
    5. After you have wiped the device, install/flash the custom ROM through
    recovery.
    6. Now install the G-Apps Add-On from the recovery. Please make sure that
    you flash the ROM first and then the G-Apps Add-on.
    7. Now reboot your phone in normal mode. It will take some time so wait until
    you see the Froyo start screen.
    8. After this go to
    (a) Settings>
    (b) ADW launcher>
    (c) Drawer Settings and change the
    value of “Zoom Effect” Speed to 300 and background color to #ff000000
    9. Now launch Spare Parts and change the windows animation speed to fast.
    Also enable “Compcache”, Launcher Rotation and Launcher in Memory.
    10. After these settings reboot your device and there you go! You have
    successfully ported Android 2.2 Froyo on your HTC Dream G1.

    Hi Friend.

    You can totally bring back your phone to life.But remeber this will void your warranty completely.

    1. You will need a donor G1 .You can find one at http://www.craigslist.com.You need this for the motherboard.The donor G1 should just have a working motherboard.
    2. replace the motherboard. Follow the steps at http://www.portatronics.com/guide/T-...-Repair-Guide/
    3. Once the motherboard is replaced format a SD card with FAT32 and put http://g1upgrade.com/DREAMIMG-RC29.zip i in the root directory.
    4. Ibnsert SD card.
    5. Start phone by pressing camera+power and flash.

    Thanks.Hope this helps

    My friend,
    If HTC G1 mobile has got bricked then I will suggest you to reach to the nearest customer Service center. Do not have trust on someone into the matter of repairing. Otherwise you could loose the warranty of your phone.








    Thanks.....
