Wanna Tether Your Nexus One?

So you got your Nexus One this week and now you want to tether that new T-Mobile 3G speed.  Is it possible?  Of course it is.  But not without rooting your handset.  The guys over at (where else?) XDA forums have released an “add-ons pack” for rooted Nexus One phones which allows for both wireless and wired (USB) tethering.  Also featured in this custom kernel are Busybox, Nano 2.09, powertop, dropbear. 

Don’t forget kids, taking things like this into your own hands can result in some ugly results.  If you’re not entirely sure you’re ready to do it,  our advice is to wait.  For those of you with rooting/hacking experience, you can head to XDA forums and follow along.
