I recently bought a G1 off the internet and when it came to me it had some mod installed on it. The phone was running really slow and crashing so I did a factory reset and since then the phone wont go past the G1 screen while booting. I can go into the recovery menu by holding end and home but I have no idea what to do from there. I've done a factory reset but it didn't help, in fact it seemed to make it worse. This is my first time dealing with Android so I don't know what I'm doing. I was hoping somebody on here would be able to give me instructions on restoring the phone to the original out of the box settings.

I had a similar issue when I flashed a kernel that wasn't quite right for my device, your best bet may be to flash a fresh rom and kernel to it.

My advice would be to try and find one that uses the easykernel as it takes away the headache of matching it to your hardware.

Let me know if you want any more help
