Just a short heads up for the people who own a G1 and have already gained root access:

Over at google code, there is a nice little project that aims to port the Firmware that was extracted from some newer (aka: beta) Android devices to the G1.
Haykuro is the lead on the project and does a pretty decent job at that.

There are basically 2 versions:

  • H (as in "This one is branded by HTC";)

  • G (as in "I'm an original Google Firmware";)

I am currently using the HTC one and I have to say that I'm pretty happy with it so far.
Some of the new features are: Video Recording, On-Screen-Keyboard, PDF Reader, Calendar on the Homescreen, …

I guess I'll write a bit more about it once I find some free time on my hands
