Although according to HTC's website, you can't update your Google G1 Phone to Android OS 1.5 unless it's a DevPhone or the HTC Dream base phone, thanks to the guys over at XDA-Developers, you can actually root your Google G1 Phone so that it can be ready in case the guys at XDA-Developers or other Android Forums are able to create an image file of the Cupcake OS to be installed on rooted G1 devices.

Although the instructions seems daunting at first, the step by step instructions are very easy to follow. Besides, it's not like you can do anything to your phone since if you brick it (becomes dead), they also have a solution for unbricking your G1 phone.

Rooting your G1 Phone has its advantages like being able to tether your G1 to act as a modem for your laptop/desktop PC, turn it into a wireless router, install applications on the SD card, install the latest Android OS directly, etc.

Of course, this is not for the faint of heart. But again, how will you ever enjoy your G1 phone unless you're able to release its full capabilities, right? So head on over to this link to see the full tutorial and don't forget to visit the dedicated HTC Dream / Google G1 forums at Xda-Developers for some updates like if they're able to create an image of the latest Cupcake build.
