In order to flash this zip I've found to address the network problem, network.zip. I'm being asked through RA to install nexus-addon-0.1-signed. I know i already did this when I followed the steps to root my N1. Now I wonder what happens If I flash it again? Will I brick it?
what does this nexus-addon-0.1-signed do?
I honestly have no idea what you did to your N1 and what mixture of guides you followed. All MCRs, including the Desire sense port you installed, are already rooted (somebody correct me if I'm wrong).
Over this already rooted ROM, you installed nexus-addon-0.1-signed.zip (presumably from here
). From what I can gather, this dates back to January 2010, to root the stock firmware back then. It lists a custom kernel being in there, which, in all likelyhood, is not compatible with your current radio. Doing that is pretty much like dropping a 1960s Porsche engine into a Prius and then wondering why the Prius is acting up. So, IMO, your phone is way beyond being fixed right now.
I suggest you start over, flashing your phone completely back to stock. You can start from scratch using these steps (and these steps only):
- Grab the latest stock firmware FRG83 in image format (not update.zip) from here
- Download the Nexus One Desire port from here; use one of the prebakes just to make sure your problems aren't caused by something you put in or left out
- Put the prebake .zip on your SD card
- Shut down your phone, from here on you either use the recovery or fastboot for the following; avoid booting your phone inbetween (it shouldn't be harmful, but it's not necessary either, so let's avoid it)
- Flash the latest recovery via fastboot, either AmonRA or Clockwork are fine
- From the recovery, do a factory reset of your phone
- Use fastboot to flash all parts of the firmware, except for recovery; check the page with the stock ROMs for instructions how to use fastboot
- Use the recovery to install the prebaked Desire port from your SD card
- Start using your phone and check if everything's working (<- This is the first time after the explicit shutdown before that you are actually fully booting into Android)
If any of these points are unclear, you should read up on that or ask back. Do not simply install anything because it was mentioned in some guide, maybe for a completely different phone or ROM.
Also, I suggest you read the guide for your specific MCR you want to install and follow it to the letter. To quote Paul "READ THIS WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU START! No, really, it contains everything you need to know."
