    I've been trying to root my Nexus One with no luck. I keep getting this error. I am follwing the instructions from the rooting link here on Android Central.

    The error reads: AdbWinApi.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

    I'm not sure what application needs to be reinstalled but I deleted the fastboot file and redownloaded it with no luck.

    Any help guys? Thanks in advance.

    You need to install the drivers in the sdk.

    Run the sdk manager, and then select the "available packages" option. Expand the third party packages, then expand the Google packages and select USB drivers.

    Boot the phone into fastboot (not hboot), and windows should start to look for the drivers. Use the select location option, and point to the usb drivers folder in sdk...

    Should work then...

    Just try it. If it doesn't work, it won't brick your phone or anything.

    Superoneclick will work...
    If you wanna try manual root, here's my guide...

    Either way, you'll need to setup the sdk.
