    Guys need some help, my N1 has been giving me all sorts of issues so I would like to reinstall the standard Rom that the phone comes with. Where can I get this from as I could not find it on the htc site

    Thanks in advance

    or do this :

    Just go there and grab Google OEM file (PASSIMG.zip). Put it on your SD card (root dir).
    Then restart your phone into boot-loader (trackball+power button).
    Once there, top power button again. It will look for passimg file as always. It will load the passimg file. Note the blue status bar at right-upper corner of your screen.
    Then, it will check that file, and finally you will see "do you want to start update?"
    Press Volume UP, for YES............and wait.
    After phone reboots - you are done! Completely back to stock!
    Then you can go to "menu-settings-about-system updates" and you should see that your phone is already downloading update 2.1-1.
    That is it.

    If for some reason you end up with android screen with triangle and exclamation mark, just press VOL up and Power, at the same time, you will get into recovery screen, and reboot your phone from there.

    I am guessing you are of the people that installed the Froyo update without rooting?

    Explain what you have done......

    hi daffy

    nope Ive not done anything to the phone

    it still has the vanilla rom that it came with

    Its been playing up a lot recently with keys not working etc so I thought the best thing would be to reinstall the stock rom, unless you have any better suggestions.

    any help would be much appreciated

    If you have not rooted the phone (and it sounds like you haven't), plus it is still running the stock 2.1 ROM, just do a factory reset.
