This is a discussion on Rooted phone OS Update Failure within the Nexus One Tech Issues / Bug Reports forums, part of the Nexus One category; Originally Posted by 40ftcobb An easy way would be the passimg method. https://dl.dropbox.com/0/view/e06bnq...ms/passimg.zip This will bring you back to froyo 2.2 and you can update ...
This works for sure,I had to use it last night and I remembered your post so I did alittle test.
After I did the passimg it took around 15-30min for my update from 2.2 to 2.3.4,just keep in mind once you up date you will lose root

However, it looks like you may have an old version of Amon Ra (it should say at the top of the screen), which may not support toggling signature verification. Updating to a newer version is easy and recommended, so you may wish to try that?
The passimg method you are considering will make you lose root, and lose your data and settings. If you are OK with that, then that is a very clean, very easy fix...
Let me know if you need help with anything.
DR is right I didn't even think,you will lose all your data and setting(apns also).
Alot of good apps need root to work,if you can keep root would keep it,and use the passimg as a kinda last resort kinda thing

Top of the white screen with the 3 Androids on skateboards??
IF so at the top of this screen it says:
*** UNLOCKED ***

I think - the print is so small I may have got a character or two wrong.
Loosing root is preferred actually.
I have the options:
- Fix apk uid mismatches
- Move recovery.log to SD
BTW at the bottom of the screen it says: Build : RA-nexus-v1.7.0
If all of this can not help me, please if you will, talk me through on how to do what ever it takes to re-format and install an OS to make this Nexus One phone operate in such a way that I can up date the OS.
A non-rooted phone is preferred but if the operation is easier to keep root - I'm all for easier! :-)
Thanks for all you help!
Sorry man, been very busy and got distracted. Came looking for you this morning when I had some free time...
Take a look at this post, it should have all the info you want:
Let me know if you have any questions?
No disrespect and just curious--but why did you buy a 1 and a half year old phone (technology wise) if you don't want to explore the hacking side of it. The N1 was designed and sold as a great developers phone and has seen Gingerbread and many other features before other basic AOSP phones.
There are much more feature rich phones out now that will not give you theses problems and many are free with carrier contracts.
You could resell it for same price and get a newer one. G2X/Sensation/Desire etc
Don't get me wrong, I love my N1 and have been rooted over a year. But, you still have the touchscreen issue and poor signal strength. Plus develoment is fading on this phone too. IMHO
If you had your reasons (sure you did) many here to get you to the KISS status.
Or, as we did with our good friend and fellow board member Aseems--convince you to become a flasher

Trying to do passimg. I was with you up to "you should wait a second for the SD card to mount then you will be prompted to flash the passimg file accept and wait for the file to flash." I waited 45 seconds but there was no prompt.
History: Running 2.3.4 stock. Wanted to root. Downloaded all android sdk. Used fastboot to unlock. Then ran ’1.1-nexusone-superboot’ to root and phone hangs. I can reboot into bootloader, but trying to load a saved update.zip starts but has and error at E; (and then I don't remember because to foolishly did not write it down). As noted above, passimg just sits there.
In my researching I've seen lots of help given by you danger (or is it Mr. Rat?). You you think you can help me??
After several attempts using various downloaded files I had success with this one:
frg83 (this is the file to fix the "main version is older" issue):http://tinyurl.com/6bym3vg .
It put me back to 2.2.1.
After I did, about 30 minutes later, the update for 2.3.4 was pushed to my phone and, much to my joy, my phone automatically updated itself. :-)
My phone is still rooted but it has the latest OS on it which was always my main goal.
I was an early adopter of the Nexus One having ordered it as soon as it was available online.
I travel internationally a lot for my job and need two phones.
One with a USA SIM chip and one with a local SIM chip.
I like the Nexus One so much that recently I decided to buy a second Nexus One to use as my “international” phone.
I purchased the rooted phone because it was the only one available at the time.
I had no idea what “Root” was but was told by the eBay seller that it meant I had to install any OS updates myself.
No problem I thought, until I actually had to do it.
It was not a simple task, but thanks to this site I got it done.
I don't really know what the advantage it of becoming a “flasher” or “hacker” is or what program language I need to know to do it (Linux?).
Maybe there's a place I can go to read up on the process?
But if I was to get try, I first would want a program to make an Image of my phone so I would always have a working copy to fall back on.
I do need the Rooted phone when I travel and would not want to be without it because I “flashed” it improperly and had to start from scratch again.
Thanks to everyone's help!
I have a up to date, working phone!
