    Ok that's good cause that's exactly what I was going to advise you to do (except I was going to tell you to install the SDK) so I guess I still know what I'm doing

    And just on a side note to flash the custom recovery you need one of two things either and unlocked bootloader (for fastboot flashing) or root access.

    I finally got everything I wanted.
    I found this nice guide by Chen that works for 2.3.3. and 2.3.4

    [ Notice! The bootloader should be unlocked before you do the following steps!and you should have SDK on your computer that will just provide driver for phone. If your bootloader has already been unlocked, you should see an unlocked lock icon when you start your Nexus One. If you don't know how to unlock bootloader, simply search "unlock bootloader nexus one", you'll find lots of tutorials. ]

    1. Download su.zip, and put it on your phone’s SD card.

    2. Download fastboot.zip, unzip it to C:\. Now you have a folder C:\fastboot\

    3. Download recovery-RA-passion-v2.2.1.img, put it in C:\fastboot\

    4. Shut down your phone. Then start your Nexus One in Fastboot mode by holding down the Trackball and press the Power button.

    5. Connect your phone to your computer. Open a Command Prompt (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt), and run the following commands:

    cd C:\fastboot
    fastboot devices
    fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-passion-v2.2.1.img

    6. Use Volume +/- keys to choose ‘Bootloader’ and hit the Power button.

    7. Use Volume +/- keys to select ‘Recovery’ and hit the Power button.

    8. From the menu, scroll the Trackball to select ‘Flash zip from sdcard’ and hit the Trackball.

    9. Select the su.zip file you previously copied to your SD card and hit the Trackball. Hit it one more time.

    10. When done, restart your Nexus One and you should be all set.

    There you go. Enjoy your rooted Nexus One

    [ To verify that your have root access, type "su" in Terminal [ get it from market], the prompt should change from "$" to "#". ]

    Unlocking the bootloader is the only way to go.
    It's saved me many times, when I managed to back myself into a corner... xD

    I'm going to suppose what you meant was can you relock the bootloader once unlocked, if that is the case then no you can't on a nexus one.

    I don't think that there's any way to relock, if that's what you mean. Mine was never unlocked.
