i was planning to install cynogenmod for the first time but i wanted to make some things sure:

i dont have root access right now can i use the z4root application to root my N1 which has a build number of FRG83D?

will the radio version of 4.06.00.12_7 will be fine with cyanogen mod 6.0 or 6.1?

and one last thing i live in dubai and here i dont have access to paid apps so will the free app rom manager will do the thing?

thanks in advance...

Z4Root is Not compatible with the N1 if I'm not mistaken.

That is the old radio and will need to be updated before cm6.1 will work.

Yes free rom manager will do the trick just fine

You might want to read these links also. I used them and have rooted 3 Nexus One phones successfully.

Good luck. I would try to walk you through it but dont want to be responsible for something said or misunderstood that may cause damage to your phone or computer. Just read up on these sites. They are pretty self explanatory. If I was able to do it after reading it you will be able also.

To root FRG83D, I suggest SuperOneClick, or RageAgainstTheCage method...
Z4root doesn't work on that build.

As soon as you have root, make a backup! xD

I used SuperOneClick the second time around after losing Universal Androot after FRG83D update and it worked great. It does require a PC to complete, but it's fairly easy to accomplish once set up. Get the newest version as they update regularly to fix bugs. It may require one or two attempts to root as it cycles through the rootcomand process.

Once you are rooted, download ROM Manager from the Market, and then use that to make a nandroid backup of your stock FRG83D software, and name it so you won't delete it by accident. This will be your first step to recovery if something happens. Note: make sure you click Flash ClockworkMod Recovery before you do any step in ROM Manager, or you'll get a white triangle with an android next to it, and then you'll have to do a power button/up volume to get into a recovery reboot, and start over again.

After that, I would recommend downloading Titanium Backup from the Market and back up all your apps and user data, it's a great program.

Once you have done that, then I would download CyanogenMod 6.1.0 stable release as it has all the goodies and is as stated, stable.

Take your time as this whole process can take up to 30+ minutes from start to finish from Root, Backup, Apps backup, and downloading & flashing CM6.1.

One final note, when the phone reboots after you flash CM6.1, the :nexusx: logo will stay on screen for some time (I've had a 2 minute wait once). Don't remove the battery just be patient during this time.

Hope this helps. :nexusx:

If I waned to add Dark Tremor App2SD, would I flash that file at the same time
I'm flahsing CM6.1 or it can be done afterward at anytime?

You can do it anytime, as long as your SD is partitioned. There's a command to move everything that's already installed.

I tried it for apps, but found using Titanium backup to move my apps to SD gave better results.

I then used it to move my dalvic to the cache partition, and now run around 100+ Meg of free space!
