mskip thank you so much for this guide! I unlocked first no problem, root I had trouble with so I skipped to install CWM which also worked. Bootlooped a bunch but since fastboot was still working fine I just kept trying and finally root worked. I've never unlocked, rooted, and installed anything this way before so it was an awesome learning experience. Up and running no problems now. Thanks again. Now onto custom roms!

cant boot in recovery
hi,

i followed the guide and everything was perfect i unlocked the phone and rooted it. now i am sorry if this has been asked and answered i just could not find it. i wanted to load a rom and when i tried to boot in recovery it display Google for a couple of seconds then i get the standing android with his stomach open for like a split second then it would change to the android laying down with a red causation sign. again sorry if this is not the right place to post this or if it has been answered already just need a bit of guidance.

thanks in advanced.

How can I tell if I extracted all the files in my c drive..

If I go to start...click on explore,...click on Local Disk c I do see the files there......is that the root?????
this is what I am doing

I installed PDaNet on my puter and my nexus.....before I unplug the USB cable...I start PDanet


I shut phone off.....open up my device manager....and I see android 1.0 with the ! (exclamation)

I update hte driver and it finds the phone....

when I go to the c drive from the command prompt,,,abd type
fastboot-windows.exe devices and hit enter

I do not get the the phones serial # or fastboot.....I only get letters giving me choices ....ie find devices...find serial # etc.....

like -s, -c etc......

what am I doing wrong???

maybe not extracting to the ROOT of the c drive???

thanks for the help

Should we still use this 5.5.0.2 CWM or should we substitute the 5.5.0.4 version? Or does it matter

C:\ is the root of the drive and typicality if you get that message that means it did not understand your command. what you should do is go into the c drive and in an empty space hold Shift and then right click, you will then get an option of open command window here. that is to make sure that you are in the correct spot in the command window, and the command should just be fastboot-windows.exe devices. try that out.

sorry but what do you mean by "go into the c drive and in an empty space hold shift and right click."

works with windows XP?

what is the best way to go into the c drive?

and it also could be I am not extracting the files to the "root"

and just to make sure..I start PDaNet on my phone..hit usb tether..then shut off phone and go into fast boot mode and then go to device manager and make sure I see the drivers?
