[Q] Emergency! Cannot restore Nexus One!
Hello out there!
I sure hope someone can help me with this! I have rendered my phone completely useless. I have been working on this thing for the past 7 straight hours.
I upgraded to the 5.08 radio and then the MIUI_Au_1.1.28_R4_N1_EN-signed.zip
Everything was working beautifully until I decided to do a Nandroid restore. I guess I did not truly understand the function of this. After a reboot, I was back at square one.
I rebooted again into the recovery mode and then wiped and reinstalled the new rom. Now the new rom is giving me an error. I cannot get any network connectivity from it. I wipe and reinstall several more times and get the same effect.
This is when I get the idea to format and partition the SDcard from within the recovery menu. This was clearly not the best choice.
I cannot get the phone to restore back to factory anymore. The SDcard is empty. I have even taken it out. When it boots up it still boots into some non-working version of the new MIUI rom. No network connectivity. Where is it storing this? I have wiped everything possible. Played with partitions. I have tried hard resetting in the limited interface and in the Recovery console.
At this point, I cannot work on this any longer. My next idea is to put the micro SD card in another device and put original stock image on it. Is it possible that the new rom installed a kernel and that is what I am seeing? I figure if I can install a different rom from the SD card I might just be ok.
Any input into this mess would be greatly appreciated. Because I still have access to the Recovery console I know this is not the end for my phone.
Someone please tell me they know what is going on!
I would be happy to elaborate any more points regarding this issue.
It seems to me that I am not able to delete something because the new rom keeps coming up. Where is it booting from if I wiped everything?
I am at my witts end!
Thank you so much for your thoughtful responses!
