all is not lost root-ers!

so cyanogenmod, the cool people at google, and other help from the dev community figured out how to keep the all important google apps using an HTC recovery image! so root, then install the new rom (CyanogenMod 4.1.999) which is stable; from reading some comments and forums, it seems like it is pretty much a must to do an upgrade_fs to ext3/4 to make this work real smooth
Below are the instructions copied right from cyanogen's wordpress:
(...and of course, REMEMBER ALL CREDIT GOES TO THE DEVS AND I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR PHONE!)

CyanogenMod 4.1.999


I’m calling this 4.1.999 because I’m waiting for the MT3G OTA, and my new installer is a little different. The ROM itself should be incredibly stable, though. This is a modified version of AOSP 1.6 without the proprietary bits. In order to get up and running the first time, you’ll need to follow some simple instructions.

But first..

The Android devices we own come with many files that can’t be redistributed legally, and as you all probably know, I can no longer include these with my ROMs. So, in order to get up and running, you’ll need a compatible device with a compatible ROM.

If you are already running CM-4.1.99+, you can ignore the steps below and just flash!

Install instructions from SimpleHelp: http://www.simplehelp.net/2009/10/04…android-phone/

Install instructions for an HTC Dream/ADP1/G1:
1- Perform a Backup……nandroid, etc
