Unhappy [SERIOUS HELP] My Nexus One cannot reboot

My Nexus One is rooted (I forgot how I did it).

Last night suddenly my phone went off and could not reboot anymore. It stayed on "X" screen forever. I tried to hard reset (i.e. Pressing volume down and power button). Then I pressed "Recovery" and then it went restart and stayed on "X" screen forever again. What can U do?

Please help, I am a new root user. please teach me step by step to do so. thanks.

Turn it off. Hold the trackball while starting it up. If you have usb debugging on and working fastboot drivers, you can wipe your phone (fastboot -a in cmd) and flash an img file of like a stock ROM.

I had read some other members did some tricks to their phone by remove the SD card and reboot the phone. BTW, is the battery fully charged? Try to pull the battery and then put it back on.

I tried this already but still not work, I had brought my phone to some third party mobile repair centre, they said my N1 is CPU broken and will cost around US$96 to replace with a new CPU (HTC need around US$190 for mother board). I paid US$96 anyways. not sure if it worth.

If your bootloader is unlocked, just flash a new recovery from fastboot Otherwise unlick it anyway.
