Hack affects Android 2.1

Google's Nexus One smartphone has already been rooted, despite its limited availability ahead of an official launch. MoDaCo member Paul claims to have created Superboot, a boot.img file that automatically roots the Android 2.1 operating system the first time it is booted.

The process allows users to delve deeper into the device's file system, potentially enabling modifications to the firmware. Users are warned, however, to apply the method at their own risk.
