Blackrose Resize CWM help?
Hey, I resized my Nexus One blackrose to ICS and I installed 4EXT Touch Recovery but when I used Blackrose to resize its gone? I went to recovery on the bootloader and all that shows up the "!" inside a triangle next to the little android so as regular booting it up. I didn't know Blackrose also wipes out the recovery and I used some one click root just to get it.
I've been reading in the forums about flashing CWM on the phone using Fastboot. But heres the thing. I dled fastboot.exe , the dll file and adb.exe and ran the cmd to install CWM but all it says is error cannot load "recovery.img(i renamed it)" Can someone send me a thread or link or anything that can teach me how to install CWM on it. I really don't know how to use Fastboot at all or Android SDK if it's needed. I checked the Wiki and it doesn't really say.

yes blackrose can and has wiped recovery
the one click root is the easy way but won't help you out of trouble like you are in
best to root the old way by downloading the files you did or installing and using sdk which installs the files for you to a tools or platform-tools folder in the sdk folder. it took me many hours of googling to figure sdk/adb/fastboot out
i don't have my n1 anymore and am ready to call it a nite--long work day tomorrow
but if you get all those files into a folder on your C drive--call it fastboot if you want to, then you can see if fastboot and adb commands work--need n1 drivers installed too
then you need to open a command window and cd (change directory) to your C: fastboot folder
open command window
cd fastbboot <enter>
then after that and on same line type adb devices
your phone must be plugged in with OS running and usb debugging must be checked in settings/dev options
if you get your phone ID# after adb devices, then type adb reboot bootloader
you should boot into fastboot, then type fastboot devices <enter>
another #---- should come up
you now need to make sure you have the correct recovery image in the fastboot folder--just the image
if so, type fastboot flash recovery recovery.img where recovery.img is EXACT name of the image file. check that before hand by right clicking on image and then properties. at this point i usually just copy/paste the image name to the command line
it should let you know if recovery flashed
then fastboot reboot-bootloader
if you boot to bootloader (red fastboot highlighted) you can navigate to recovery and install a rom that has SuperUser in it to get good root
ideally if you can get the Super User zip and a rom on sd card prior to all this you can install the rom then the SU zip while in recovery
either way you need at least a rom with SU in it on sd card, a nandroid with a similar rom on sdcard or you may have to push a rom to sdcard thru adb
you can see why adb and fastboot knowledge are necessary--
if you get to booting a rom do a nandroid backup right away and a good idea to backup sdcard to pc also
i also found it better to use fastboot commands for blackrose and splhexeditor to change partitions
haven't done this for awhile as i have been rooted for several years, so hope i didn't leave anything out
maybe one of the mods/techy members can confirm or correct me
also the xda n1 forum, where i guess you have been can help also

You probably figured out how to fix your problem by now, but if you installed 4ext recovery, then it saved a recovery image that you can flash via fastboot while your phone is in recovery. It should have saved the recovery image on your SD card in SD/Download/4EXT_Recovery_Touch/ and be named "recovery.img". Unzip and copy the recovery.img to your computer. Then use fastboot to flash it to recovery. Instead of rehashing what is already out there check out these links:
