Thanks for this very useful and comprehensive post - I rooted Froyo using the wifi exploit method described. I was given a power button failed Korean CID Nexus One by a student who was told by Service center that the mainboard was broken. Without the ability to unlock the bootloader (power button is required to confirm fastboot oem unlock), I downgraded to Korean Android 2.3.3 using PASSIMG method: renamed PASSION-KR-FRF91 to PASSIMG.zip
- The ROM must be an official version for the device (same region) otherwise the PASSIMG process will fail. Nexus One official ROMS can be found here http://www.mediafire.com/n1passion
The linux commands in this post worked FLAWLESSLY and I was rooted in no time. I used ROM Manager to install custom CWM. Installed root explorer and searched for
but I didn't see those in there. I didn't require the stock rom after a reboot anyway so I continued to download CM7 and installed using ROM Manager. All is good now!!
MUCH APPRECIATION - doing things without a windows bash script via VirtualBox is still and always will be the best method!
