Hello people! I've been trying to educate myself in the ways of rooting and flashing rom's on android. I recently bought a pre owned Nexus One because I don't want to get locked into another lengthy contract and end up paying too much for a new handset when a fully functioning good condition one will do me. I was using an HTC Legend but I find that the screen is a little too small.
My bootloader on my N1 is unlocked. It came to me with Android 2.3.4 build number GRJ22. I've been stalking the forums at xdadev and other places to learn about rom's and stuff. Lastnight I tried to flash Blandroid onto my N1 but this happened

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002]

archive does not contain 'recovery.sig'

Device version-baseband is '5.12.00.08'.
Update requires '5.08.00.04'.
finished. total time: 0.026s

My N1 and all it's functions work as normal as far as I'm aware.
Would I be able to flash Cyanogenmod to my device AND would everything work as it should?

I do find it funny that you came to the CM forums when you were having problems with Blandroid

But, using fastboot is mainly for flashing img files. Typically, most ROMs will not come in that format. They are flashable zips that you have through a custom recovery. If you check out the wiki for the N1, there are links for ClockworkMod or Amon_RA. Once you get those, you will need to extract the img from the zip file and flash that using fastboot.

fastboot flash recovery "c:\location\to\recovery.img"

Once you have the custom recovery, you can flash whatever ROM you want on there through recovery.

Oh, and if you reboot the phone with a stock ROM still installed on it without modifying it, it will replace any custom recovery. So once you put the custom recovery on the phone, make sure you just select recovery from the menu rather than rebooting.

I was not looking for an answer to Blandroid problem ( used Blandroid forum for that ) I thought the info I posted would be relevant to my question as quoted above. Perhaps I should be more clear. . . Will it be ok to use Cyanogenmod with my N1 that has version-baseband 5.12.00.08 and is a GSM handset? Is there any different and/ or relevant info I should post?

I knew you weren't looking for help with your Blandroid problem, I just thought it was funny and had to mention it

And I thought I was clear enough on my answer, but I guess not. Once you put a custom recovery on your phone, you can flash whatever ROM you want... including CM. Pretty much all current N1 ROMs will work for any N1 device. I think it vastly improves my phone from the stock version, so yes, everything works as it should and in my opinion, better than stock. It should have no issues with your N1 device.

Like I mentioned in my last message, all that is required is to get the custom recovery on the phone. Once you do that, then you can flash Blandroid, CM, MIUI, or any of the huge amount of ROMs out there for the N1.

Ok I just wanted to get it as clear as I could because I've read of many different problems other people have had trying run different roms or whatever the technical term may be.

THANK YOU for your advice. . . I'll probably pop up again somewhere on this forum asking for more guidance. Have a good day
