Unhappy [Q] At wits end!! Please Help.

OK folks, I know some of you are going to jump straight down my throat, but please, back off and stick to the friendly forums that this used to be where anyone would help anyone.


the story so far is that I once loved my Nexus One, I've had it since launch, I have ran Cynogen Mod 7 for a couple of years, I have had MUI roms running, I have played with various kernels, updated radio, upgraded hardware, all was going wonderfully.

the one thing I could never get was full SU!! Heck knows why!!

I then started getting random problems and downloaded the original google frf83 software and flashed the phone via update.zip using amon-ra recovery.
I thought all was well after this, as my phone received 3 OTA updates and now my phone is on...

Android 2.3.6
Baseband 32.41.00.32U_5.08.00.04
Kernel 2.6.35.7-59465-g42bad32 (android-build@apa28 #1)
Build GRK394

I noticed that in the Status (settings) it was displaying my old sim card number, which is not the number for the sim in the phone now. his I thought was odd and that something had gone wrong.

So as most of us would do, I went to boot AmonRa recovery and it wasnt available, it had been overwritten with the default recovery; ok lets just ADB and reflash it, I hadnt used ADB for a couple of years because I did everything through AmonRa's awesome recovery!!
So off I go, install the SDK, all the appropriate packs including the USB driver, just like I did when I originally flashed the phone with the recovery image!

But an old problem came back that I hadnt even been bothered about because I always put stuff on SDcard via a card reader!!

I have had consistent problems with my nexus one for some time now in regards to the USB drivers, no matter what I do the phone will not install and I believe it could be some conflict in the device.

I am running Vista Ultimate (fully registered) and no matter what I do I cannot get the Nexus One to install. It will only display as unknown device, which is absolutely useless.

I have browsed every post and tried everything I have found, and yet nothing is working. I have used devmgmt, I have tried the roll backs, I have tried to install every driver available to get it working. I have uninstalled the device, updated drivers after fresh install attempts, I have even formatted my laptop thinking it may have had a corrupt OS and bought Vista Ultimate.

I am not a complete noob and I have been around these forums for some years, but I never thought I would have to cry out like a 4ucking Noob with such a seemingly simple problem, but it is not simple, I have done everything I can possibly find!!




I must get the USB working in order to get the recovery back, I can access my phones default recovery but it will not work when trying various roms as update.zip!!
I have tried the terminal commands on the phone to install the recovery.img but I do not have SU access and the phone point blank refuses.
I have attempted to change and remove the recovery files reffered that are causing the revert to default recovery, but shock.. I cannot delete because of insufficient permissions. I cannot ADB because the USB driver refuses to install.

So if I cannot change the files due to permissions, I cannot ADB because of USB, I cannot get to Ra's recovery because of bootfiles, I cannot use default recovery to update.zip... I am absolutely losing my mind and I'm going nuts browsing the forums for the second week running, yes I am now on day 12 of trying to fix this problem and at a complete loss...

Can someone please help??
I will even allow remote access to pc because I am that desperate to resurrect my beloved Nexus One.



I also have a Galaxy I9000 without 3 button download mode but that is an entirely different story!!


Please just someone, come to an oldskoolers rescue, and yes PAYMENT will be given to the knight in shiny armour!!

Or just use fastboot instead of adb...

His Nexus One isn't recognized by the computer, so that won't help unfortunately. Also, I've never heard of build GRK394..
