Default Fastboot remote: Not Allowed

Ok so my N1 is unlocked and is running CM ROMs fine i just do not have adb. ADB worked great back when CM was in beta but not it isn't working anymore. What i wanted to do last night was to do a fastboot erase XXX. XXX being boot/system/data. Only thing is that every time i try to do that command i get a Fastboot remote: Not allowed. If i try and flash over something using fastboot i get a Fastboot remote: unknown Error. I know my phone is connected because fastboot devices shows my phone. I am just wondering what could be causing this and how i can go about fixing it. Thanks for any help.

The last time I saw that error was when my service provider pushed a locked SPL in an update that rendered fastboot unusable.

This can't be a problem in Nexus though. Are you sure you see a big pink "UNLOCKED" at the very top of your bootloader?

Oh its there, it says unlocked on top of the bootloader as well as having the lock on the boot screen. I was hoping that by erasing and flashing the system and boot would fix adb. I have had this problem ever since CM moved to the larger boot.img files. I just don't get what it is. The phone flashes every thing fine under recovery but fastboot just doesn't work and adb only works within recovery not in the Rom.

Well that's really weird. Have you tried uninstalling the phone drivers from your computer and installing SDK from scratch?

Unhappy fastboot erase system -w

Hello,

actually ive got the same problem. Coming from Nightly Build (27.08.2010) and want to flash the CM6.0 (Final).

Nexus is staying in a bootloop and a fullwipe with RA doesnt make it possible to boot the CM6.0.

So i forwarded the problem as an issue to the CM Dev. He recommended to clear the System with :

fastboot erase system -w

erasing 'system'... FAILED (remote: not allowed)
finished. total time: 0.066s

I have the same issue. I'm thinking maybe this is why I can't flash CM6 properly. I run adb logcat and I just get a loop. :P

Did any of you use the One-Click root method (or Unrevoked)?

That installs a custom usb driver that may not work properly with fastboot.

If this is the case, remove that driver and replace it with the one from the SDK...

May work... ?

I unlocked the Nexus One with fastboot oem unlock.

Did not use the "one click" method, using the Android SDK USB Drivers.

Other Option : Tried to format the "System" with Clockwork Orange Recovery - still got the bootloop.
