Android 1.6 (Donut) ROM Images have been released by Google and HTC

Google has released Donut (i.e. 1.6) ROM images. HTC’s images for ADP1 and the Google I/O device can be found at These images are NOT T-Mobile images so they can’t be flashed onto a stock T-Mobile G1 without either installing a modified recovery image or using fastboot (see this posting on XDA-Developers for links to the necessary tools and information). The page has 1.0, 1.1, 1.5 and 1.6 ROMs along with fastboot, radios and instructions. Note that HTCs ROMs were signed with test keys so flashing without wiping or running fix_permissions (see here for the thread on XDA-Developers or here for the Cyanogenmod issue) means your apps can’t access their data. Watch the HTC site because Google says they’re working with HTC to correct the problem and get new ROM images uploaded (see this Google Groups posting for details)
