I guess I'm just not swayed that there's no reason not to root my Nexus One (your last statement). I don't know this guy I'm supposed to contact if HTC rejects my repair. Any help/clarification for me? I know you're trying to clarify things in the first place, but I'm still confused.
just did it last night. very confusing for me at first but got a hang of the commands. i can walk people thru it if needed. Basically you just need to make sure you flash your recovery image correctly before flashing any ROM's
Eddie if you follow the instructions and and put the custom Amon Ra recovery on your phone, and MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP! before installing roms the only area where you enter brick territory is flashing a radio and then only if you pull your battery or it runs out of juice during the install. Google made this real easy!
If I am not mistaken when rooting your G1 you could "Unroot" or put it back to factory settings making it so no one could tell you had been tinkering with it. That is not the case with the N1! You get a padlock unlocked on your boot screen when you unlock the bootloader and you cant make it go away. So they know you did it.
The led will be fine if you dont use it as a party strobe or work nights and use the N1 as your primary flashlight. I mean it is a phone not a MagLite!
Ok so I didn't do a nandroid backup before loading the cynanogen rom. Is there any way to revert back to the factory settings and get rid of the rom?
Go over to XDA and look. There should be a post that has links to the stock rom images. Did you get the new radio ERE36B I think? As well as the updates that go along with it?
Why would you want to go back to stock rom? CM5.0.2 Stable is awesome, plus nice themes too! Check out the NexThemes on the forum. They install just like a Rom With Amon-Ra. Just boot into recovery and Flash.
Also looks like there is gonna be a new HTC desire rom ported over using the CM High MEM kernel SOON. You will get all the MT stuff plus you will have Flash, etc!
How about in a couple of days you will be able to Install the Desire Rom From HTC that has Flash 10.1, and all of the UI Sense features from HTC plus the advantages of a HighMEM kernel that can address most of the memory that the stock Kernel cant(why you only have 256M ram) Plus you can install the new radio that and update that leaked from google but hasnt come out OTA yet! ERE36B it really does fix the 3G stuff. T
Not to mention all of the really cool Themes. Check out NexThemes at Over at XDA! They are awesome!
Also,what is a kernel? I keep reading about them but not sure what they are or do. Do u flash them in recovery?
