 +====== More memory with radio 2708 on HTC G1 ======
 +
 +I've known for some time that a radio update for the G1 gives about 14Mb more userspace memory when used in conjunction with the right components on your rooted HTC G1.
 +
 +I wasn't quite clear on what you had to do to get this working, and my first attempt failed. So here's what worked for me.
 +
 +I referenced these pages. [[http://​forum.xda-developers.com/​showpost.php?​p=9055790&​postcount=1|EzTerry'​s XDA post]], [[http://​forum.cyanogenmod.com/​index.php?/​topic/​11548-CM6.1%202708port%20(for%20new%20radio+spl)|EzTerry'​s CyanogenMod Forum update]], [[http://​forum.cyanogenmod.com/​topic/​9819-cm61-rc1-2708port-for-new-radiospl/​page__view__findpost__p__109239|srd'​s summary of actions]].
 +
 +===== You will need =====
 +
 +    - HTC G1 rooted and with DangerSPL and Recovery installed as per the instructions [[http://​wiki.cyanogenmod.com/​index.php?​title=HTC_Dream|here]].
 +    - hboot-1.33.0013d.img and radio-2.22.27.08.img from [[http://​rapidshare.com/​files/​429271074/​dream_2708kit.zip|dream_2708kit.zip]].
 +    - Radio [[http://​rapidshare.com/​files/​431351258/​update_2.22.28.25_S.zip|2.22.28.25]] update zip.
 +    - Modified CyanogenMod 6.1 [[http://​sandbox.devnull.name/​android/​cyanogenmod/​update-cm-6.1.0-DS-2708port_S.zip|image]].
 +    - Google Apps Tiny zip for CyanogenMod 6 from the [[http://​wiki.cyanogenmod.com/​index.php?​title=Latest_Version#​Google_Apps|Cyanogen page]].
 +    - [[http://​elinux.org/​Android_Fastboot|fastboot]] for your host.
 +
 +===== Procedure =====
 +
 +Copy radio update, CyanogenMod image and Google Apps zip files to the G1 SD card.
 +
 +Reboot phone into bootloader - power off, hold down camera button, power on. Press Back button to enter Fastboot mode.
 +
 +On your host
 +
 +  $ fastboot flash radio radio-2.22.27.08.img
 +  $ fastboot flash hboot hboot-1.33.0013d.img
 +  $ fastboot reboot-bootloader
 +
 +and after the phone reboots into the new bootloader
 +
 +  $ fastboot erase system -w
 +  $ fastboot erase boot
 +
 +Now power the phone off. Then power on again into recovery by holding down the Home button while pressing Power to switch on.
 +
 +In recording, apply the radio 2.22.28.25 update zip. It will apply and reboot back into recovery. Then apply the modified Cyanogen image zip and then the Google Apps zip. Finally, reboot.
 +
 +The phone will take longer starting than usual, but when it does if you ''​adb shell''​ into the phone and check the memory, you'll see
 +
 +  # cat /​proc/​meminfo
 +  MemTotal: ​        ​112844 kB
 +
 +a worthwhile improvement over the previous
 +
 +  # cat /​proc/​meminfo
 +  MemTotal: ​         98568 kB
 +
