    When I try to go into recovery, I get the Exclamation mark with the android. I found this:
    I checked and that file is there with permission -r-. How can I fix recovery? I don't want to install any roms until I know recovery is working. I had issues yesterday after trying to install cyan's rom. I had to do a restore. Recovery worked until I did the restore now I can't get into it.
    I followed this guide Full Update Guide - Nexus One Firmware to CyanogenMod - CyanogenMod Wiki
    At no time did it mention needing root access. But this link says root access is required. [Recovery] [21-Mar-2010] RA-nexus-v1.7.0 - xda-developers

    I did not install superboot.

    you need to have superboot flashed before the recovery image.
    this is why you are getting a problem.

    I'm about to give up. I've checked the files, they are not corrupt. I installed 5.0.5 and just get a constant loop of the splash screen.
    I did a wipe and restore, phone works, but now I'm back to the ! when trying to get into recovery. I have root access.
    So what is the first step to get recovery working again? I have root access. N1 Torch works great.

    erich make sure you flash 5.0.5.1 before 5.0.5.3 or you might have boot problems like you currently do!

    i had the same problem!

    I've tried 5.0.5, 5.0.5.1 and neither will work. I either get stuck at bootloader or the constant splashscreen. Can I just install Recovery again to get it working properly? Then i'll try installing the rom again.

    always check the MD5 checksum values... always... in case you are getting corrupt files for some reason...

    ok make sure you have 5.0.5.1 and 5.0.5.3 on your sd card before you boot.

    -boot into recovery
    -WIPE
    -do a 'nand restore' back to the recovery image backup (your first backup)
    -then 'flash from zip' your 5.0.5.1
    -then 'nand backup'
    -then 'flash from zip' 5.0.5.3
    -then backup again
    -reboot regularly

    see if that works.
