    Hi everyone,

    I'm getting kind of desperate and asked this question on xda-developers, in case you wonder: [Q] Restoring system partition on N1? - xda-developers

    Now here's what I totally messed up: I deleted framework-res.apk from /system/framework/ and rebooted the N1. Of course, the system won't boot anymore.

    Since I cannot use adb tools to put the apk back in its place (I don't get root access if the device is not fully booted) I thought I might be able to use fastboot to restore my system partition. I tried
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot flash system system.img
    with a system.img from PASSIMG_Passion_Google_WWE_1.01.1700.1_ERD79_release_signed.zip
    But the signature is not accepted:
    Code (Text):
    1. FAILED (remote: signature verify fail)
    I should probably mention that my bootloader is NOT unlocked.

    So does anyone have any clue on how I can restore my system? It would be very, very nice if I didn't had to wipe my data...

    Thanks in advance
