If you could spare a little time this morning I would appreciate it a bunch!
Hello everyone, my name is Cody and I just joined this forum today. I dumped my iPhone 3Gs and got me the ATT band Nexus One. I love it and I have done a lot of research regarding rooting this phone. I have never rooted a phone before and this is my first android device!
I made up my mind (after spending hours and hours researching) to root my N1. The advantages are great and after using my N1 for a week and really getting to know my phone I want to get into flashing ROMS etc.
This leads me to my request. I am sorry if I am in the wrong place, but I was wondering if someone that has experience in rooting (preferably with the ATT Nexus One, if that even matters) the N1 would take a bit and maybe shadow me in the process. I know that is a lot to ask and again I am sorry. I just want to make sure I do this right and that I am doing everything that I need to do. I have read that it can take a few hours so I have all the time in the world this morning. I don't know what would be easier but I have a blackberry lying around that I could call someone or if that would be weird I am open to suggestions. I don't need someone to hold my hand through the process just be there if I have any questions. I am open to all kinds of help (email, PM, chat, etc)
I have a Macbook (early 2008 edition, if that even matters) My nexus one is is Firmware version: 2.1 -update1 (you probably knew that), Baseband version: 32.26.00.24U_4.04.00.03_2, Build Number: EPE54B, Kernal Version 2.6.29-01117-g4bc62c2 android-build apa26 #1.
I dont know if you need this info but I have read that you need to flash the radio to the right version so I was writing this to see if I have the right one. I would like to do this without messing with the radio (I dont really feel like bricking this gorgeous piece of machine) I do know that I should never remove the battery. If I am missing anything please let me know I am very patient and want to do this right. I havent downloaded the things that I need just yet but I can do that. If someone would maybe let me know the latest Cyan Mod. (Oh I should of mentioned for now I would just like to root and flash the newest stable Cyan)
I know this is a lot to ask and again I am really sorry (especially if this is in the wrong area to post this) Even if you don't have the time to shadow (I dont blame ya) I would appreciate any info that you have the time to spare. Thanks again guys and I look forward to meeting you all!
