Thats the Euro Vodafone firmware. Use this tutorial to get stock FRF91. Apparently there is a FRF91 version coming soon.

Hello MoDaCo,

I am new here. I recently got a Nexus One for T-Mobile USA. I wanted to root the device to load custom ROMs. But I am not able to do that. I have tried a lot of things from here and even from XDA.

I am on Stock Nexus One that is not rooted and with the Stock ROM FRF91.

On XDA I have seen a thread where it says by flashing passimg.zip from the SD card, I can downgrade to a lower stock firmware than the FRF91, but I was not able to downgrade.

Is there anyway I can get the phone rooted and get your Desire ROM on my device? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I a Win Mobile user for a while and recently came to the Android world, so things are looking a lot different in the flashing Custom ROMs. I am doing a lot of reading and stuff, but I guess the first thing is to Root my device which has become impossible.

Thanks for all your help.

I've apparently got a Google 'Holiday' developer phone running build ERD56C.

Am I safe to use the ERD79 version of SUPERBOOT?

cheers, Thomas

p.s. PM'd you about this phone in relation to another thread...


Anybody know whether I'm safe to use the ERD79 version of Superboot with stock build ERD56C?

Same question. Would it replace my former superboot?
As I tried earlier superboot for frf83 but it wasn't working.
I'm hoping that frf91 superboot would fix this.

Hi Paul! Thanks for your good job, well done!
I successfully rooted for my Google Nexus One (Froyo 2.2 FRF91) by using your Superboot for FRF91.
Yes, it is required to unlock the bootloader first before I install superboot my Nexus.

This is what I did:
1. Download the superboot, because the files from mediafire link is corrupted everytime I download.
2. Extract all files in the superboot zip file to C:\1.1-FRF91-nexusone-superboot
3. Open the windows command prompt so I can see any messages shown when superbooting
4. Point the directory to C:\1.1-FRF91-nexusone-superboot
5. Connect the phone to USB and boot the Nexus One to bootloader mode (hold down the trackball and power button)

In this step, I do a simple check that the phone is detected by the fastboot by starting another command prompt like the following:

C:\>cd android-sdk-windows
C:\android-sdk-windows>cd tools
C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>fastboot devices
HT017******* fastboot
C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>


6. Back to the command prompt, type: install-superboot-windows.bat like below:

C:\1.1-FRF91-nexusone-superboot>install-superboot-windows.bat

and then the following messages shown:

C:\1.1-FRF91-nexusone-superboot>fastboot-windows.exe boot boot.FRF91.superboot.img
downloading 'boot.img'... OKAY
booting... OKAY

C:\1.1-FRF91-nexusone-superboot>


7. My phone reboot automatically, and I noticed that it's installs Superuser Permissions application.
8. Done.

Before you install any ROM, you should always check the md5sum to make sure the file was not corrupted. You can download an application for windows to check it here. http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/md5sums/
Mac here. http://llmd5sum.software.informer.com/ (I'm a pc so I haven't tried this one. Shop around if you need to.)

Make sure you have the correct radio for Froyo based ROMs.
You can get the correct radio and a vanilla FRF91 and root.zip here (all of these have to be flashed in a specific order without rebooting so read the steps carefully) http://tinyurl.com/2bdl58w.

Fastboot may be available soon, but I don't think that has anything to do with what is going on with your phone. It sounds like a bad .zip.

If you lose your recovery after you reboot, you will have to repeat the steps to to flash it in fastboot.

Keep trying, reading, and learning! Post your experiences (success or failures) for all to read and learn from. Good luck and have fun with it. :(



Just wanted to update everyone . . . . THIS WORKED PERFECTLY!!! THANK YOU! Now that the image installed correctly, my audio issue is also resolved. So now I have a rooted Nexus One with Froyo. Now that just rocks!!! Thank you!!!


Here is what I did:
1.) I downloaded three files as mentioned above:
- signed-passion-FRF91-from-FRF85B.db99fdf1.zip
- update-nexusone-FRF91-stock-noradio-signed.zip
- update-nexusone-FRF91-cm-addons-signed.zip
2.) I booted my phone to recovery mode, and went to the [USB-MS toggle] menu
3.) I copied the first file to the root of the SD Card, and renamed it to: update.zip
4.) I then went to the [Flash zip from sdcard] menu . . . and let it complete the install (this first file produced some errors which I ignored)
5.) I then went to the [USB-MS toggle] menu
6.) I copied the second file to the root of the SD Card, and renamed it to: update.zip
7.) Repeat step 4 (no errors)
8.) I then went to the [USB-MS toggle] menu
9.) I copied the third file (add-ons) to the SD Card, and renamed it to update.zip
10.) Repeat step 4 (no errors)
11.) I rebooted my phone, and all is well, on the right version.

Thanks again!!!

I'm having the same problem as a few of you had with the file being 600 bytes. When i try and unzip it i get an error. How do you get around or fix this? I'm on frf91 and have completed unlocking the bootloader. Thanks for the help in advance.

I downloaded the mirror link for FRF91 (the first one appears to be broken) but I got a different MD5.. I got:
6dc34c3e94f52fdea73683d7f6d557eb instead of

de97d4f6c3b724d8cde015a986f99b95

Anyone know what's going on? Is something wrong with the FRF91 version?

  • Devices:Nexus One - FRF50
Hi, I'm not sure if this questions belongs here or somewhere else on the forum - so feel free to move it (I'm new here).

I have N1 FRF50 ... A while back when Froyo 2.2 came out I looked into rooting, did it using superboot I believe, and then uploaded a custom ROM for 2.2. Everything has worked great.

Now since mid-July I've been being harassed by my N1 to install an OTA update. I tell it to restart and install, and it only restarts to the superboot screen (Black with green text). So I tell it to reboot and then I'm usually good for a few days until the update pops up again. I'd like to install this official update, is there anyway to do this? I don't really have a need to have the phone rooted (I don't think). I do not run any special apps, at one point I needed to use an AT&T sim in it, so I unlocked.

Any help would be appreciated. If I try to install any "official" updates from online using superboot I get an error saying the signature is incorrect or failed.

Thanks.
