    I would like to use my G1 that i got from my cousin(it was his old phone) as a media device AKA like an ipod or sometihng. Since it has no SIM it automatically takes it to the lock screen that says No SIM Card. I've searched up ways to bypass this and get to the main setup, which involves using Adb Shell. The problem is Adb says my phone is connected good and everything (i was able to enable usb debugging) but in adb shell i dont have 'permissions' to do anything. Even typing in 'su' doesnt give me root permissions. I also cannot use fastboot to flash a recover.img or anything onto the phone.
    Please help (i have a micro sd reader so i can put software onto the card)

    You need to root your g1 and flash a rom too it, visit xda developers forum and look for the rom bible, at the beginning there is a guide to rooting and flashing make sure you read the instructions carefully and are comfortable with doing it you could brick your phone send me a pm if you need any assistance or enter kool4cats@googlemail.com into google talk
