    Ok so I've read everything before I started to root my phone but I went through all the steps but I don't have the ninja icon in the app menu. I installed the update.zip file on my phone, then powered off and on with holding x and power. Next I held volume+ and the camera button and then went to apply update.zip from sd card and then rebooted.....but after that, nothing. Everything was still normal after that. Nothing had changed. Am i missing a step here?? Help me out

    A couple questions. Did you get any errors when you did the update, and where did you get it from?

    No errors at all. Well I couldn't get it from here cuz every time I tried to DL the file, it gave me some error on the page about bandwidth problems so I just googled update.zip and found it on a site. Could that be the problem? Where can I get a good file?

    I'm not familiar with the N1. Might try the nexus 1 forum to get a quicker answer.
