    Post [TUTORIAL]Root FRG83(N1) without unlocking bootloader

    Disclaimer
    I'm NOT RESPONSIBLE OF WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR PHONE, this is only a recopilation of guides that let me succsessfully root my Nexus One.
    Original guides can be found here:

    2) [Tutorial] Root Without Unlocking (Alternative way for all ROMs Vodafone,Korean,US) - xda-developers

    ##

    Lets begin
    1) Download attached file and unzip it in a folder (in my case I use d:\files\ directory)
    2) adb push d:\files\rootnow /data/local/tmp/rootnow
    3) adb shell chmod 700 /data/local/tmp/rootnow
    4) adb shell
    5) Execute exploit (It will automatically close adb shell)
    $cd /data/local/tmp
    $./rootnow

    6) now you should see some info in your adb shell
    7)Restart adb
    adb kill-server
    adb start-server

    8) Enter adb shell again
    Now you should see root
    # (# instead of $)
    If you dont see # try steps 5-7 again
    9) To preserve root you need to install su and superuser
    10) Exit shell
    exit
    11) Run these commands (in order please)
    adb push d:\files\superuser.apk /data/local/tmp/superuser.apk
    adb push d:\files\su /data/local/tmp/su
    adb push d:\files\busybox /data/local/tmp/busybox
    adb shell
    cd /data/local/tmp/
    chmod 755 busybox
    ./busybox mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system (thanks matthewdavis)
    ./busybox cp busybox /system/bin
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    busybox cp superuser.apk /system/app
    busybox cp su /system/bin
    chmod 4755 /system/bin/su

    exit
    exit
    12) Now you are root
    adb shell
    su

    13) after you executed the su command the Superuser app on your device should ask you for allowance. You should see the "#" prompt again, if you didn't get that try su again
    14) Remove unnecessary files
    cd /data/local/tmp/
    rm busybox
    rm su
    rm rootnow
    rm superuser.apk

    15) Exit shell
    exit
    exit

    Now you are root. You can install ClockworkMod Recovery via the RomManager app (search in market), and the Custom Rom of your preference.

    Additional note:
    If you install ClockworkMod and doesn't stays (is deleted) after reboot try this
    1) In your terminal, type "rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh" and hit Enter
    2) In your terminal, type "rm /system/recovery-from-boot.p" and hit Enter
    3) Re-install ClockworkMod using RomManager

    Recovery: ClockworkMod 3.0.0.5
    ROM: CyanogenMod 7.0.0 RC2

    Hi,

    At step 11, after CHMOD 755 busybox, when I try ./busybox cp busybox /system/bin I get this error: cp: can't create '/system/bin/busybox': Read-only file system
    What should I do?
    Thanks

    I just hit the same problem. This step was left out.

    ./busybox mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

    Evidently there is more than one way. I used "1 Click" that doesn't seem to work with the lastest Google rendition.

    Don't see anything in a newer phone that gives me a temptation to leave my Nexus One!

    1 click root doesn't work anymore with the latest upgrade (FRG83). The wifi exploit (the method used to grant root access) has been patched.

    By execute xploit I mean execute the steps
    $cd /data/local/tmp
    $./rootnow (<-- this is the "exploit" that roots your device)

    As I mentioned before, the method used by 1 click root has been patched. (his developer had said that he will add this method (rootnow) to new release of 1 click root)

    I did get updated and remained rooted by updating using "nightlies". I'm as happy as if I was in my right mind.
