If you are not aware of the above news report published last year, now you learn about it.
The first generation Google smartphone had broken new ground for Google Android in the face of strong Apple iPhone taking huge market share. And indeed, Android OS development (also thanks to the AOSP – Android Open Source Project) has never looked back since then.

I got hold of one piece of the 4 years old “history” which is on Android version 2.3.6 and started to root it.
There are many sources of How To Root Nexus One… on the web.
I came across this root tool kit DoomLord_v3_Root-ZergRush… in my search and used it to root my Nexus One successfully. See below. You can get it from the XDA Developers Forum or other relevant sources on the web and just following the steps accordingly.


Just to note that if your Nexus One doesn’t connect successfully to the ADB path via USB to your PC, you have to download the following zip file (USBDeview) from XDA Developers Forum site to establish proper driver installation, on your PC with your phone plugged in.


Other than that the process to root Nexus One is very easy, in accordance with the steps highlighted on the XDA Developers website.
If you are new to rooting Android device, it is expected that you should read up adequately on the XDA Developers Forum and others, before you proceed with rooting or flashing custom roms.



At the end of root process, All Done indication will be shown on screen. Congratulations!

Unplug your phone and let it auto reboot. Upon completion of reboot go to app drawer to check – SuperUser app will be installed by the root tool. So your phone is Rooted.


Next, if you hate the Google Market app on your Nexus One because of you are on Gingerbread OS, instead of updated version Play Store on more advanced Android version….


I used this “trick” to let the system to allow me to update to the latest Google Play Store and of course, with updated Google Service.
First, go to download from the Market any KitKat Launcher app. Once your phone is installed with KitKat Launcher the icon and UI will be changed accordingly. At the same time, latest Google Service will be updated followed by the Google Play Store.
Then, delete the Market app.
Even after I uninstalled the KitKat Launcher, Google Play Store remains in the system, it goes along well with Nexus One’s stock Launcher.


So you can have the best of both worlds, a rooted Nexus One with latest Google Play Store & Service.

Next, i will explore flashing of custom rom on this device…
I have also flashed the CWM Recovery onto my Nexus One via ROM Manager.
