rooting will take you 10 mins max.... With rom manager you can backup your actual rom before flashing a new one and get back to it if needed. (you wont need )
I didnt make a backup of videotron rom, i'm using root stock 2.2 and no problemo.
with passimg method, flashing a new rom is easy as 1, 2, 3
(I must be lucky cuz I never had wifi issues...)
in the meantime you can try wifixer
I was thinking the same way you are i was afraid to screw up my phone but i decided last week to do the PASSIMG method to remove the videotron ROM and flash back the original android rom and i got all the latest updates and my phone is going way better and my signal keeps being strong even to i go in a walmart or costco before when ever i entered those stores my signal would go down to 1 bar and sometime i lost the signal but not anymore and now my phone doesnt connect to a partner network like it use to do when i was close to videotron's limits.

*Basically, passimg method is to put, let's say FRG33 (2.2) as a passimg file on your sd, reboot the phone while holding vol - key and the phone will scan the file and ask you if you want to install, select yes... thats it and you'll be free
afterward, you'll get an OTA for 2.2.1. Take it or not. I don't, I personally likes 2.2 better.
*You'll have to add back the videotron APN in mobile networks, so you can access the 3G network.
Yeah its true Thanks again iPeck

i experience less bugs with it (touchscreen sensitivity and issues, force closes, etc..)
As 2.2.1 doesn't bring nothing new to my everyday use (and got the same look), i'll stick to 2.2.
Can anyone help me install a stock rom on my Nexus One while using a Mac? I've currently got the Videotron rom on it. I've tried using Garufo's instructions, but I'm having trouble following the instructions because of a lack of a dos prompt. I wish I had a PC to do it with, but at home and at work I've only got access to a Mac.
I'd really like to be able to get OTA updates, and I've never been able to get them since I'm using the Videotron rom.
I've already rooted the phone using Universal Androot
Well to flash a ROM you don't need to have a computer at all. All you need to do is instal ROM manager (market app) then flash a recovery, either clockwork or Amon RA if you want to have access to ROM managers features I suggest clockwork mod. Then you can just go into ROM manager and download a ROM that you would like to flash like a stock rooted one or you can try a custom one like cm6.1.1 cause if your going to be rooted you might as well enjoy the custom ROMs.
Then once you download the ROM you will have a notification to flash it first there will be a box that says gapps you click on that if you want Google apps (market and such) then in the second box there are to options I suggest you select the first option which is make a backup of this ROM the second one (something like wipe data and cache) you must select if you are flashing cyanogen mod or almost any custom ROM but if it is just stock to stock you should be able to get away with out a wipe. But it's really no big deal because if you need to whipe then just use an app like titanium backup to backup your apps and your good to go.
I have the EXACT same problem on our two new Nexus One (one is running stock 2.2.2) and the other is running CyanogenMod 7 nightlies.

I have the problem either whenever I lose signal. I'll get the dreaded Google sign-in dialog. Anybody solved this issue? It's driving me nuts.

Good instructions and video at this link.
From ROM Manger (Installed yesterday), I installed "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery" and then did a "Backup Current ROM".
Now I'm trying to decide on which of the many ROMs avail I should put on my N1,.. any suggestions as to why a specific one ?
++++++++++++ Update ++++++++++++
Nevermind,.. after trying a few different ROMS I think I found a winner
It is fast and by far the best one I have tried, it's a keeper,...
It even has a really nice FM Radio App,..
In case anyone is interested,.. here it is, just follow the links ,...
