    I recently got back a warranty swap Nexus One with an old version of android (2.2) and thought to myself "Hell, I might as well try rooting for once since it the 1-click method doesn't unlock the bootloader and you can always go back right?" Wrong [​IMG]

    Well, I updated the radio as part of the Cyanogen 6.1 installation to radio version and now that I don't want to be rooted anymore I can't seem to get the radio version back to normal to what it should be on 2.2.1

    The 2.2.1 radio should be: Baseband version

    But when I updated to 2.2.1 it stayed the same: Baseband version [​IMG]

    Have I screwed up my radio? I just want to get my phone back to normal please help [​IMG]

    Surely you just need to re-flash the old radio image, then un-root your phone.

    Why not just leave 5.12 installed? Won't cause any problem.

    Thanks you guys for responding.

    I am worried about not getting OTA updates though since I messed with the radio and installed Clockwork recovery.

    Before I tried rooting and flashing Cyanogen I was able to go into system updates and get a prompt to update to 2.2.1 while I was on 2.2. Since then I have unrooted, and when I restored back to 2.2 I wasn't able to update ota to 2.2.1 (Which I think is due to the radio not being what it should? Or clockwork recovery still being on my phone?)

    I don't want Gingerbread to come out and not be able to get OTA updates and always being stuck on radio for the rest of time :(

    What is it that actually stops rooted phones from getting OTA updates? Is there any way to know if I will get OTA updates in the future or have I screwed this up by messing with the radio/installing clockwork... even if I have put my phone back to 2.2.1 but the radio version is different? :thinking:

    Radio is nothing to do with OTA updates, recovery is though.

    I have flashed many radio's and have always gone back to 4.06. All you have to do is re-flash the older radio. Nothing special to do other than flash and re-boot.

    This. It's no doubt that not only will the official update be on XDA, but I'm assured that custom ROMs may beat it to their like it happened with Froyo. Froyo leaked early in development cycle and the gang at XDA had versions ready to before the official version was released.
