Nerds Win: Nexus One Rooted Before It's Even Officially Unveiled

Illustration for article titled Nerds Win: Nexus One Rooted Before Its Even Officially Unveiled

Even more impressive than the Droid's quick rooting, the Nexus One has been conquered from the inside before Google has even officially announced it.


The guy behind the rooting, a Modaco forum-goer named Paul, successfully rooted the coveted Nexus One and made a custom ROM called Superboot to ease the method for everyone else—not that all that many people can take advantage of it, seeing as how we're still a week away from the phone even being unveiled. This could be good for the Nexus One, given that some signs have been pointing to tighter Google control over the device—but we'll have to wait to try it out until its release. [RedmondPie]

I would love to find out who these people are that get these things before they are even released and then turn them in. See how many more of them think internet fame is worth their job at Google.
