    So I've tried to flash like 3 different ROMs onto my Nexus One and every time I reboot, it just loops the boot up animation.

    And now when I do a Nandroid Restore, it says wi-fi unable to start...

    I have no idea what went wrong...

    Anybody offer any type of insight??

    Thank you!!

    List the steps you took to flash. Did you wipe before flashing?

    As in Data wipe/Factory reset? If so, then yes.

    Is there any way that i can somehow reverse the steps or anything??

    Also now, when I do a Nandroid Backup, i've lost the ability to use wi-fi...

    Thanks for all your help!

    I assume you also wiped dalvik-cache.

    Kay, tell us which ROMs you flashed and whether you checked the MD5 to make sure it matches and that the file's not modified/corrupted. Also, have you tried redownloading the ROM, wiping, then reflashing? Did you flash a radio image?

    Well i went back through the process again, and this time it worked.

    These were my steps:
    -Start phone in Fastboot
    -Bootloader
    -Recovery
    -Wipe data---complete
    -Wipe Dalvik-cache---complete
    -Flash zip from SD
    -Choose ROM---complete
    -reboot---complete

    For some odd reason, last night I did the same exact thing and it didn't work and I have no idea.

    What were the other things that you listed above about MR5 and what not? I'd really like to know what that is exactly..

    Thank you so much!!

    MD5 = checksum. It's a series of characters that lets you know the file you've got is the genuine article, so to speak. Typically a ROM developer will give you the MD5, and you can verify your file against it. This page explains all about it.
