    Someone Please HELP me rooting.

    So I finally decided to try and root my nexus one today, but ran into a problem after all day of searching different forums and trying different things I still cant get my usb drivers setup right when i plug the phone in it shows a pop up "nexus one". and Hardware wizard pops up and I do what everyone else does, but then when I pick the folder where the driver is I get "CANNOT INSTALL THIS HARDWARE" "the hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary hardware" And the same thing happens when I run devmgmt.msc and it has Nexus One next to a big yellow question mark I've tried running on command prompt but says something like searching for device but never finds it. If someone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it, And sorry if this was the wrong place to post. Thanks

    Go Here.

    USB Driver for Windows | Android Developers

    I have to add that 99% of issues i have seen posted lately are issues that have answers. I rooted mine a few weeks ago, but I simply used Google search right now and typed in, "Nexus One USB drivers" and the answer was at the top. Sorry to be a nag. Just offering advice. Look up Cyanogen and nexus one or Modaco and nexus one. Between those two search queries, I guarantee you every tid bit on root and hacking issues are answered. BTW, I have already update to my 6th ROM. It only gets better

    Fixed the problem I downloaded a USB driver from xda and it finally worked, but now that my phone is rooted I ran into another problem now my voice search doesn't work also voice search in Google maps.

    it might do good to let everyone know what rom are you on, what you exactly did.

    I hate to say it but you might try wiping it and then trying again if you can't find any help on xda
