    Returning to stock

    Hi, I'm new to the forum but I've read through many posts on how to return an unlocked phone to stock but following the instructions hasn't worked for me.

    I got my Nexus One from Ebay, and it came unlocked and now OTA updates fail verification.
    Build: RA-nexus-v1.7.0
    Build number: FRF91
    kernal: android-build@apa26 #1

    I'm now trying to return it to stock by using the PASSIMG method.

    I've downloaded:
    For each one I downloaded the file to my laptop (unzipped it if required), renamed it PASSIMG (.zip), connected the phone with usb, enabled usb storage, and copied the file to the root of the SD card. I then turned off usb storage and shut down the phone. Then I did power on whilst holding the volume - button. It got into the recovery/fastboot/hboot menu.

    That screen says:

    I also briefly get the message:
    SD checking..
    No Image!
    Loading PASSDIAG.nbh..
    No Image or Wrong Image!
    No Image!
    Loading PASSIMG.nbh
    No Image or Wrong Image!

    What am I doing wrong?

    I have been off the n1 for awhile and never tried the passimg. but, you need to make sure it didn't get named If renamed in windows, sometimes a second zip is added. Try renaming to just PASSIMG and try.

    Not sure if it is your issue

    Not sure why you want to return to stock. You can go to the XDA developer forum and there will be custom roms there you can flash that will get you much more than just a stock update. Takes some studying though--
