If your phone is currently running Android Froyo FRF91 as downloaded from Google or the OTA update, here is how to unlock your bootloader and root your phone.


Unlock the bootloader
Detailed instructions here (http://www.ihackintosh.com/2010/01/how-to-unlock-the-bootloader-on-nexus-one-to-run-custom-os/), but essentially boot into fastboot and issue the fastboot oem unlock command. Note that this will do a factory restore, but if you've enabled web backup, all your applications will be downloaded again upon reboot. Boot normally to ensure everything is running fine after the restore.
.
Flash the Amon-RA recovery image
Download the latest image and follow directions here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=5283488). Essentially, boot into fastboot again and issue fastboot flash recovery path-to-downloaded-file.img. This allows you to install custom packages.
.
Download root package
Download the "update.zip" file from the "Root" section here containing su, superuser.apk, and busybox and copy it to your phone's SD card. Boot your phone into recovery mode (which will be the new Amon-RA recovery mode) and Flash the zip file.
.
Reboot and enjoy
Applications requiring root will now function! Take screenshots, etc.


** Be sure to checksum all downloaded files against the MD5 hashes listed with the files! ** A corrupt download here can do bad things to your phone.

Has anyone tried it yet?
I'm a n00b at this and I have a Stock unlocked never-rooted Nexus One and I am kinda panicking looking at so many threads on the internet on how to root a N1

Would rather wait until someone tries it out first and posts.

Thanks :)

@tonybhoy does this wipe your device data (apps, settings and personal data)?
If yes, what app did you use on your non-rooted phone and did the restore work fine?

In step 2 above, Did you use the stock recovery or the Cyanogen recovery?

In step 3 above, did you install ALL the 4 of the files mentioned below?
There is an official FRF85B to FRF91 update (considering I'm ALREADY on FRF91?)
There is a link that says 'without radio image'
Root
Addons

I'm trying to create a small YouTube video and everything in 1 zip file for those n00bs like me who are worried at their first time rooting their precious N1 :)

Thanks for confirming the method works :)

I have a never before rooted FRF91 and this doesn't work. You need to have your phone rooted in order to complete step 2.


Pre-Requirements :
- unlocked bootloader : How to unlock the bootloader (http://android.modaco.com/content/google-nexus-one-nexusone-modaco-com/299078/how-to-unlock-the-bootloader-on-your-nexus-one/).
- root access : Modaco's superboot (http://android.modaco.com/content/google-nexus-one-nexusone-modaco-com/298782/06-mar-erd79-epe54b-superboot-rooting-the-nexus-one/).

@tonybhoy I think what @zyb5000 means here is that you might have had root access before doing rooting your FRF91.

Now that I track back, here's what I think should be done:
1. Downgrade to EPE76
[TIPS] Stuck On FRF91? Want To Downgrade To Get Root? Click Here! - xda-developers (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=717870)

2. Get Root Access

3. Flash recovery
24/Feb 1.6.2 - RA-nexus Recovery Image - Android @ MoDaCo (http://android.modaco.com/content/google-nexus-one-nexusone-modaco-com/299241/24-feb-1-6-2-ra-nexus-recovery-image/)

4. Get the FRF91 based ROM
02/Jul r21 - MoDaCo Custom ROM for Nexus One with Online Kitchen - Froyo FRF91 - Android @ MoDaCo (http://android.modaco.com/content/google-nexus-one-nexusone-modaco-com/309718/02-jul-r21-modaco-custom-rom-for-nexus-one-with-online-kitchen-froyo-frf91/)

Can someone please confirm?

Thats fantastic.

I have the following file on my device

/system/etc/install-recovery.sh

which means every time I load recovery it loads into the stock recovery instead of the Amon_RA recovery mode. In order to load into Amon RA recovery mode I have to delete that file.

I need root (su) in order to delete that file. Which is why the guy listed root as a prereq.

You've probably rooted your phone before so you most likely did not have this issue.

Anyone know how to root FRF91 with an unlocked device?

Ya. I tried it. I ran into the problem I posted above. I can't boot in Amon RA recovery. There is now way to boot into it with out removing the file

/system/etc/install-recovery.sh

which I can't do because you need su to remove it.

If you already did not have the file because you previously removed it or whatever reason then you should be fine. But since this is my first time unlocking my phone and attempting to root it I ran into this problem.

Ok, so I took the leap of faith on my stock FRF91 N1 (NEVER rooted before) and tried rooting it and flashing a custom ROM. Honestly, it was a scary experience, but at the end of it all, I was worrying over nothing (as long as you follow the steps)

Have this page (http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Full_Update_Guide_-_Nexus_One_Firmware_to_CyanogenMod) open at all time and follow AS-IS and you should get root on your FRF91

Here's the steps:
1. Enable USB Debugging from Settings > Applications > Development on your phone

2. Install NexusOne USB Drivers on your PC for your correct OS version
How To: Set Up ADB/USB Drivers for Android Devices | TheUnlockr (http://theunlockr.com/2009/10/06/how-to-set-up-adb-usb-drivers-for-android-devices/)

3. Download the Android SDK here (http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r06-windows.zip)

4. Unzip the SDK to the root of C: - You do not need to run any setup, etc. Just the extract should be fine.

5. Reboot machine to make sure the drivers are installed (Not really necessary, but fastboot.exe did not find my device without the restart)

6. After reboot, open CMD and go to C:\AndroidSDK\Tools folder
type:
adb devices

You should expect the following text:

C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb devices
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
HT0xxxxxxxx device (Your device ID - does not necessarily have to start with HT0)

7. Follow the Fastboot from here (http://android.modaco.com/content/google-nexus-one-nexusone-modaco-com/299078/how-to-unlock-the-bootloader-on-your-nexus-one/). You can copy those 3 files mentioned in the link to your fastboot folder. I copied those 3 files to my AndroidSDK\Tools\ folder - Does not matter

8. Get the Cyanogen Mod, Google Addon, Amon_RA recovery from Full Update Guide - Nexus One Firmware to CyanogenMod - CyanogenMod Wiki (http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=Full_Update_Guide_-_Nexus_One_Firmware_to_CyanogenMod)

9. Leave Cyanogen Mod and Google Addon to the root of the SD Card

10. DO NOT copy the Recovery Image or Radio (if you are using FRF91 stock, you don't really need to worry about this) on the SD card

11. Open CMD, go to the Android\Tools\ folder (where you copied those 3 files) and type:
fastboot oem unlock

12. You should get a warning - Accept it and your bootloader will be unlocked. All data will be wiped.

13. Then flash the recovery (I flashed the regular Amon_RA recovery instead of Cyanogen recovery - Just a matter of choice or being safe when doing the first time)

14. Flash Cyanogen with the instructions AS-IS - DO NOT DEVIATE if you are doing this for the first time

If you followed it step-by step, it should work (worked on my never-rooted stock FRF91 N1)

1. can you "unroot" it?

2. could it mess up my phone?

pc_michael
07-18-2010, 07:25 PM
You can unroot it. However, part of the rooting process includes unlocking your bootloader, which cannot be undone. However this doesn't affect how your phone operates anyway.

If you don't follow the steps it is possible to mess something up, but it's nothing a factory restore wouldn't fix.

Hey man. Thanks for posting these steps of what worked for you. I've been reading thru it and the links to make sure I understand it before i root. Just got my N1 FRF91 a couple days ago.

I'm confused about one part: in step 8 you say to download Amon_Ra's Recovery Image... but then in step 10 you say NOT to copy it to the sdcard. Then I think you flashed to Amon_Ra Recovery in step 13...

Can you expand on this a little bit.
What I'm thinking is that we dont necessarily have to use Amon_Ra's Recovery image, but instead we can go straight to flashing cyanogenmod?
Sorry if this is a noob question.

Of course the very first step doesn't work.

I had copied Fastboot in my AndroidSDK\tools folder. You can't go wrong with that with missing files. Try that.

You need to have the following files where fastboot is located:
1. ddms.bat
2. AdbWinApi.dll
3. adb.exe

You should not run into trouble otherwise.
Also recommended to use the command prompt explicitly since you need to provide parameters to the fastboot executable

Sorry if this is a noob question.

Recovery.img (you got to rename the Amon_RA recovery image file to this) should be placed in the folder where you have the fastboot/adb installed (I had copied fastboot and all the necessary files to AndroidSDK\tools folder where I have everything in once place.

You have to flash the recovery using fastboot executable from the command prompt on your computer.
I doubt you can flash Cyanogen without having flashed a custom recovery. That's a primary pre-requisite. I might be wrong though.

After unlocking the bootloader make sure you wipe your device - People have reported endless boot sequences and never being able to get their phones to start.

Let me know if it works :)

If you need to update the radio, do it off the SDCard
If your radio version is 4.06.00.12.7 (you will see that in the bootloader menu on the top), you dont need to worry about it and just go ahead to flash recovery and Cyanogenmod.

Hi guys,

I just tried to unlock and root my nexus (in FRF91)... the unlock worked fine; then I try to flash AmonRA recovery, I did "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img", I got a OK message on the pc but now I cannot enter to AmonRA recovery. Everytime I try, I get the default recovery... Any idea how to fix this?... I saw in amonra forums, and they say this problem is because there is a "/etc/install-recovery.sh" file, I tried to deleted but I cannot coz I don't have "su" access yet... well, any help will be wellcome

You might want to try again with stock recovery first and then install the custom recovery and see if it works for you

Make sure you wipe the device from the recovery before flashing the Cyanogen update

You are looking at a Cyanogen ROM, I assume. That zip file needs downloaded to your PC and copied to your sdcard. Once there rename it to update.

This happened after you selected "Flash zip from sdcard"?

Have you ever successfully flashed a ROM?

Make sure you always do a nand backup before doing anything. Then wipe.

Plus do any app backup you have on phone.

I haven't had this problem before, someone will answer.

You can pull your battery if it is still stuck and think it all over.

rugmankc
07-23-2010, 07:02 PM
Could be a lot of reasons, what recovery image did you flash? Do you have SDK installed on PC thru which you flashed a recovery image like Amonra. Would need your complete process of how you got to where you are plus build. Is the ROM you are flashing for your particular phone?

I am no expert so once you give us that info, maybe someone can help.

Copy them both the way they are. Does not matter since you will be asked what do you want to flash on your phone. Just make sure you know which one is which.

Rooting gives you root access on your phone. You can use special apps that the Android API does not allow you to do so. Yes, you may compare it with Jailbreaking to some extent.

I just rooted my phone not too long ago. It's great! I mainly did it so I could edit my hosts file, plus I found a couple sweet apps that you need root access for.

Has anyone tried it yet?
I'm a n00b at this and I have a Stock unlocked never-rooted Nexus One and I am kinda panicking looking at so many threads on the internet on how to root a N1

Would rather wait until someone tries it out first and posts.

Thanks :)
Yes, I have Rooted 2.2 Nexus with Cyanagen 6.0RC2 Rom Installed. It Rips!

Hi, I have the Nex1 on 2.2 and want to Root it. Can someone explain what it will do for me, what pro's and con's there are and (as simply as possible) how do I do it. I have a PC with Windows 7.
Thanks folks.

That's all you need to know. I'd recommend going for the stable Cyanogen (5.0.8?) instead of CM6 RC (since it is not 'officially out' and stable yet)

I rooted my stock FRF91 with these instructions and it worked great. If you havent rooted your phone yet, you should do it just for the added battery life by installing SetCPU. I get 2X my stock battery life.

Also, a friend of mine just rooted his nexus with a "one-click" rooting app that came out earlier this month. Seems to have worked great for him.

[ROM] FRG83(D) Stock, Deodexed, rooted, busybox, battery %, TB alert/wake 11/20/10 - xda-developers (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=714184)

I just installed the update from there, it has the root and all is working just fine for me. But I did have my bootloader unlocked. It was really easy using the rom manager though.
