    N1 update to GB2.3.3

    Hello
    so i've got my n1 it is rooted and recovery system i have is i guess cyanogen mod? since it has its logo and the colors are cyan :P

    anyways so i updated it to GB just now and i got a popup about the system update to 2.3.3 (i have 2.3.1 now i flashed it)
    and when i press the download button it downloads and then it says my system is up to date... without restart
    but then i exit the system updated thing and i get the pop up again
    i tried flashing the update since i found download somewhere but when i do that heres what i get:

    "Install from sdcard...
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    E: No signature(391 files)
    E: Verification failed

    Installation aborted."

    so no i dont really know how to update the system
    im kinda newbie to all this so any help is appreciated!

    You are rooted. Therefore any system updates cn not take place without you first unrooting or flashing the stock ROM.

    Yup, it sounds like you are running one of Cyanogen's ROMs, so the stock Google update will not work on it.

    If you want stock Gingerbread, you will have to install the full ROM (either straight from Google, or one of the many pre-rooted versions floating around).

    If you want the latest Cyanogen, you can get it from their website, under the Experimental/Nightly downloads. Be aware that these are work in progress, and may have errors and glitches, etc. Having said that, a lot of people use them (including myself)...

    If you want to stick with your current setup, you can download and install an app called FOTAkill, which will stop the update notifications...

    Hope this helps?

    1. Extract the zip you downloaded and you will find a bunch of files...you'll only need:
    boot.img
    recovery.img
    system.img

    Put these in your Android SDK tools folder.
    2. Start phone in fastboot (hold down trackball + hit power) and plug into USB.
    3. Open a command window from your SDK tools directory and type in each of the following commands in bold and do not interrupt (system.img will take a while; it's 116megs)! Be patient and wait for each one to finish:
    fastboot devices **this is to be sure the phone is recognized**
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot erase userdata

    4. Reboot phone and reenter all your google/gmail acct info.
    but i seem to have few problems i searched a bit and still cant get it to work
    i have android sdk installed i also installed the usb driver but when i try type in cmd line
    fastboot devices
    i get the unknown cmd error or when i try to open the cmd line in android-skd/tools folder i get
    "The program can't start because AdbWinApi.dll is missing from your computer"


    any chance you could guide me step by step through the process? or provide some info that will help me get it done?

    This is probably a better option...

    Backup your apps and settings with Titanium (use the batch option).

    Backup your full system via recovery (or ROM Manager).

    Full wipe, then install, then restore your apps via Titanium.

    If you want complete stock, then you can go with this...
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=968396

    Make sure you flash the su zip straight after flashing the ROM, and do not reboot in between...

    Same procedure as above, except for the su zip...

    I thought I'd better give directions...

    Backup with Titanium.
    Place the files on your SD card.
    Boot into recovery (should be an option in the power off menu for CM).
    Use trackball in recovery to select the backup option.
    Next wipe, factory reset, or whatever option your recovery has.
    Next, use the flash zip from sd option to select the ROM zip.
    Do the same for the su zip (if using the second ROM I suggested).
    Select reboot (you may have to use power button to go back to a previous menu).

    Install Titanium, and restore your backup...
