View Full Version : Restore rooted nexus one to factory state

12-16-2011, 01:42 PM
I'm now a happy user of the Galaxy Nexus. It's time to pass on my nexus one to my dad. However, he's not very tech savvy and I think giving him the phone with cyanogenmod is not a good idea. I'd like to restore the phone back to "normal" for him. What's the best way to do that?

I found the following link:
Nexus One/Guides & Tutorials - XDA-Developers (http://forum.xda-developers.com/wiki/Nexus_One/Guides_%26_Tutorials)
But it seems to be long out of date.

Never mind, I used the following:

Nexus One: How to unroot device and restore back to the original rom - Tech-Recipes (http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/14420/nexus-one-how-to-unroot-device-and-restore-back-to-the-original-rom/)

Worked great!

hope he enjoys it

As the "tech support" for my dad, the last thing I need to give him is a phone with even more complicated options. The simpler it is, the better for him and for me :)
