A member of our Android Community (lgsilvaas), has just found instructions showing how to update your G1 without getting the over-the-air update. All you need is a MicroSD card to update to the new RC29 firmware. Many of our users still have not seen a single update, many of them very impatient. For those who are just too impatient to wait and are feeling brave this is a good instructions are as follows:

- Download the update from google website: https://android.clients.google.com/u…-RC19+RC28.zip
- Rename the file you just downloaded to update.zip
- Copy the file update.zip to the root of your micro sd card.
- Now turn off your phone and turn it back on while holding the home key.
- When you see a triangle with a exclamation sign and a phone, slide open your keyboard and press ALT-L to display the menu and then ALT-S to start the update process.
- Wait for the update to finish. If prompted, press Home + Back to restart your phone.
- Wait a little bit more and done!
