    Default [How-to] Install AOSP Gingerbread on the Nexus One

    Credit where credit's due: These are instructions for installing an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) build of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It was compiled by Chris Soyars, who's far more of a bad-*** at this than I.



    The instructions:

    1. Download the Gingerbread build from Mr. Soyars. (link) Copy it to your Nexus One's SD card.
    2. (If you have custom recovery already, skip to No. 5.) If you're running a stock Nexus One, you'll need a custom recovery to flash the Gingerbread build. Easiest thing to do is to download Amon Ra's recovery (link), then copy it to the /tools folder in your Android SDK directory. (You've already downloaded that, right?)
    3. Reboot the phone into the bootloader (turn off, hold trackball and power) and plug into your computer. Make sure your hboot verison is 35.0017. (If you have the latest OTA, you should be good. But double-check.)
    4. Type fastboot flash recovery xxxxxxxxxxxx (where xxxxxxxx is the exact filename of the recovery image, including extension).
    5. Now enter the recovery (from choose "bootloader," then "recovery").
    6. Wipe data and cache (dunno if you have to, but it's a good idea).
    7. Flash gingerbread_passion.ctso.zip.
    8. Reboot.

    There you go. You're now rocking Android 2.3 on your Nexus One.

    Update: OK, nothing too much to see here. Video helps.

    I'd hold off and wait, too many are reporting that they cant go into recovery after updating hboot.
