Get The G1's WIFI To Activate Whilst Still In The Sign In Phase

I have an old Google G1 phone, that i use now just for experimentation.   Sometimes i end up reflashing it, and i end up in a situation where i have to get past the initial stages of Android setup where it forces you to sign into a google account before it will let you go any further - and with no valid sim card in it, the only other option is to use WIFI.   The only problem is you can't get to the WIFI settings to turn it on, until you pass the initial sign in phase :(

Any way, here's a handy run through, along with all nessecary downloads to use ADB and a usb cable to control Android in the background and bring up the WIFI settings whilst still in the sign in phase :
