    Hey everyone, I've been struggling to get my Nexus One up and running with the Sense UI. I unlocked the bootloader and rooted it (it all worked as far as I can tell) but whenever I try and flash a new ROM onto the phone I get the error E: no signature E: verification failed I have tried many different ROMs from Cyanogen mod and just a standard Nexus One ROM, but I've had no luck in getting this to work. Plus, when I just return to the original state, my WiFi is out of commision and as an AT&T subscriber (I have two lines so it's not the end of the world), I rely heavily on WiFi for my nexus. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I haven't been successful elsewhere.

    did you flash the recovery image after unlocking the bootloader?

    also, you need to wipe everything after flashing the recovery image

    here's the guide i used: Guide

    doesn't have to be the cyanogen rom, you can use any rom

    Depends on where he gets the rom. Modaco still packs the rom with the Google bits.
