Just a heads up (I nearly missed it),

After rooting my Galaxy S2 with Doomlord's Rooting Toolkit I pulled out my N1 to see if it would work and it did! Within 30secs I was fully rooted.

My N1 was running 2.3.6 stock till now and I didn't want to wipe to be able to root and this is the way.

I know I had been waiting a long time for this so maybe it'll be useful to others.

Zergrush Exploit: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1296916

Update: Note that several manufacturers have patched their firmware to make this exploit fail. I don't know if this still works for the N1 though I believe it should considering I haven't seen an update come out for it (could've missed it) So if it fails for you and you got a very recent firmware could be google fixed it.

Instructions are in the first link.

The gist of it is
1. You need to have your phone's drivers installed for adb to work
2. set to usb debugging
3. connect usb cable
4. run the bat file
5. press space to start the process
6 30secs later (for me) it rebooted and I was rooted.

So to confirm, this I's a working Gingerbread 2.3.4 / 2.3.6 Root exploit without unlocking the bootloader?

Oh man, my Nexus is just begging to be reunited with CyanogenMod!

Oh okay, I thought you have to do something special as you provided two links.
I just did those steps and it worked flawless.

Thanks!

@CPM

Yes it roots your phone without unlocking the Bootloader even on 2.3.6 (as is my case)

@DarsVaeda

Sorry for the confusion I was just trying to provide references and credits where due.

Works great! Thanks.
last exploit here: http://cloud.github.com/downloads/re...h/zergRush.zip

Step by step:
empty /data/local/tmp/
C:\adb pust zergRush /data/loca/tmp
adb chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/zergRush
wait...
C:\adb remount
adb push su /system/bin
adb push su /system/xbin
adb push Superuser.apk /system/app
adb chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
adb chmod 4755 /system/xbin/su
reboot phone

You can su

Try: Install connectbot (or any Terminal) from Google Market connect local, type su, allow. Done.

Now remote bloatware: facebook, Amazone, twitter )

Cheers Airbag888 for bringing this exploit to our attention (and of course everyone else involved in finding the exploit and scripting it)

Works like a charm. I couldn't revert back to the older 2.3.3 Gingerbread after HTC fixed my power button. Suffered the "Main version is older" error downgrading and nothing else worked.

My Nexus is now safely reunited with CyanogenMod and I'm mighty happy

I'm new to this so I have a question!

If I root my phone using this method will i then be able to use rom manager to install cyanogen rom or do I have to do anything extra?

If you root via any method (this one included)

you can install a custom recovery of any kind (including clockwork which comes with Rom Manager)

you can install compatible Roms via Rom manager as well.

It should not void your warranty either since you're not unlocking your bootloader.

However make sure to do a backup before you install a new ROM and also to wipe your data/cache via recovery when you install another ROM
