Please help fix recovery Google Nexus One or tell me if it's bricked
Hi all, been ages since I've been here,
I picked up a google nexus one off a friend that appears to have a corrupt recovery. (fastboot, bootloader, everything works fine) but as soon as recovery is selected, It will launch into a screen with a multi-colored cross icon and a unlocked padlock at the bottom and won't go any further... This is the same screen it will go to if booting normally.
re-unlocking the phone
rooting using superroot
flashing several different new recoveries (RAs, CWMs)
tried erasing existing recovery but get access denied error ;
FAILED (remote failure)
But I cannot get passed this screen when it's supposed to be going into recovery so I can flash a new rom..
Is there any hope for this phone? or is it bricked?... Can I flash a rom without using recovery?
Thanks in advance for any help or advice, be cool to get this phone working again, Happy to provide any info or do anything you suggest
