This is a discussion on N1 Guide to Rooting & Flashing Cyanogen within the Nexus One Development & Hacking forums, part of the Nexus One category; Originally Posted by deVil81 Well, then we have something in common. I also got AT&T N1 last week. Can you confirm the Md5 of superboot ...
I have gotten as far as step 4 and seem to have hit a wall. What are the differences between the two superboots and does it matter?
I run the Superboot and it seems to work, but then when I try to do the flash image, it gives me an error. Sorry, I don't have the exact wording because I am at work. My computer also wants to recognize the flash img as a zip file, so I'm thinking that might be part of the problem, but the superboot, I think, is where it seems to be getting hung up. I have tried it several times but always get the exclamation point with the android when trying the recovery. I am running Vista by the way.
Any help or advice would be great...Thanks in advance.

Once your rooted go on to step 5. You have to flash Amon-RA before you can boot into recovery mode, otherwise you'll still get the droid with the exclamation mark. Sometimes if you have winrar or an app on your pc that by default manages .img files, it will then show the zip file icon even though it's still a .img.
on vista open any folder and click organize>folder and search options>view tab, uncheck "Hide extentions for known file types". then go look at the amom-ra file you downloaded and it should say .img at the end of it.
Ok, one more question...sorry. What is the difference between the two super boots, because I used the one with himem enabled and now my wifi says that it's unable to start.
Potentially dump question...
About to root, and reading some tutorials. Most do not have step 1 as posted here to install Android-ADK...what exactly is that used for and is it necessary ?
An easy way to see if its required is try and complete step 2 with out it. If you enable debugging on the phone and your phone shows up in device manager on your pc as needing drivers then that should answer the question.
quick question will i have my orange settings still on phone or have to put them back in after root?
