Due to concerns about the security of a previously shared program, I've pulled the link and info. Please use the following that was shared out from jcase (for some reason it won't let me mention).

If you need to root your stock ROM, please use the method that was posted by in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2539930

Here's the quote about the information there:

adb uninstall com.qualcomm.privinit

Install the app that's attached (also from jcase's thread).

Run the apk, then wait a minute.

Go to the Play Store and download SuperSU.

Go into SuperSU and make sure you have root permissions. Test an app or two.

Remove the app from your phone when you get a chance.
Use the adb command "adb uninstall com.qualcomm.privinit" without the quotes.
You can use also remove it manually a few ways without adb.

You can also flash a ROM (even stock ROM) with TWRP and it will ask you if you want to root it. You can select to root with it and then you'll be fine without any need for installation yourself. When I used that method on my last install, I had to reboot my phone to get root to show up. It told me that I wasn't rooted on first boot. Just a simple reboot fixed the problem.

-------------------------------------------------------

Windows ADB Driver:
If you haven't installed ADB drivers for your N1, you can find them here:
https://dc381.4shared.com/download/A...er_windows.zip

Download, extract the folder, and then point your drivers to the android_winusb.inf. Then you should be setup for ADB.

** I will update this as needed. Please let me know if I forgot/missed anything, or if you have anything to add. This requires very little knowledge of Android, and you don't even need the Android SDK installed.

-------------------------------------------------------

Updates/changes:
2013.12.10 - Removed link and information to a program. Updated information reflect other method.
2014.01.30 - Changed link to Windows ADB driver. Oppo took their link down yesterday.

Feel free to use other methods if you don't trust this one. I wouldn't share it if it was unsafe.

Also, with a custom recovery you could just flash a different ROM or SuperSU directly.

jcase posted an apk that provides root without needing a computer that is probably much safer than this. The stock recovery provides a rooted shell out of the box. It would be easy to use that to install SuperSU or something. You can also flash & boot TWRP then hit reboot system and let TWRP install SuperSU & root your device. No need for installing a somewhat suspect root application like this.

I agree, and it seems to much like kingoroot

I've updated the OP and pulled the information about the suspicious app. I personally think that it's fine, but if there is suspicion, I would rather be safe and remove it.

I've used the information the @jcase posted instead. The adb drivers are still there though.

I should have backed up the stock recovery image, I didn't. Anyone happen to have it?

I do have the stock recovery image, and I'm also about to post a how-to for installing CM on TWRP.

Edit: The thread is here - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2553165
