- Put AbdWinApi.dll and AbdWinUsbApi.dll from the SDK "tools" directory and fastboot-windows.exe from this zip file in a directory together >>>>> fastboot.zip

- Open a cmd window and cd to the directory where the three files are

- Enter "fastboot-windows.exe oem unlock". You should see "< waiting for device >".

ok, big newb question here. i use mac primarily and i don't understand what you mean by putting the files into a directory together.

By magic I have a Ship SPL with S-OFF so I can unlock and relock my bootloader. If anyone knows whether I can read the SPL off my phone I'm happy to pass it on.

we do already have the engineering spl. its on cyanogens server: http://n0rp.chemlab.org/android/nexus/

but afaik regular phones only got a 512k spl, that is 768k in size.

however, i do not know if someone tried to flash it already as it will almost certainly result in a bricked phone ;p

In which case my SPL would probably be useful since its definitely a regular retail Nexus One, not a dev phone or holiday phone.

okay, that sounds reasonable <_<

but i have to admit that i do not know how to pull the spl from the phone. maybe drop on #modaco or #cyanogenmod on freenode, i'm sure that someone there can help :mellow:

I think you should get onto Paul with this as if it is 512k then it shuld be able to be used if the signature can be reproduced.

AAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!

I am obviously doing something stupidly wrong, but I don't know what.

My computer fails to find my Nexus One. So although I have fastboot and the AdbWinApi.dll and AdbWinUsbApi.dll in the same folder, it won't do a thing when I double-click the fastboot-windows option.

When I try to access it through a command line prompt I get the message "fastboot-windows oem unlock is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".

HELP! I've been trying to fix this for 3 days. :)

Your phone is booted up to the white screen from holding the trackball and it says Fastboot USB above the menu items? You also installed the drivers so the nexus one is seen by the OS? If so you'll have to let us know the error and what fastboot-windows devices shows. You need to be in the directory where your fastboot and dlls reside when using the console, unless you place all 3 in windows\system32 or some system path.

Ok, IM not even getting that far. I get a flash of a prompt screen and thats it.

Ive tried reinstalling the drivers. And still no dice.

Man, I thought this would be easier than rooting the hero

Ive tried doing the commands from a prompt. And I get <remote: signature verify fail>

So I figured that I need to unlock the bootloader

so I tried using the command prompt, and I get AdbWinApi.dll is missing, What the heck? ITs in the same dad blame folder.

Anyone want to share how to correct this? The other responses to the thread say that they have figured it out, but they dont say how.

Whats the deal?
