Well, it didn't take too long. G1 is jailbroken. Full system access, read and write, has been obtained. And this method is quite easy. A few folks at the xda-developers forum discovered you can start telnet on the device by downloading PTerminal from Android Market, and then you can telnet to the device from your computer.
