Fast-Acting Hacker Makes Nexus One More ‘Desire’-able

Paul O’Brien, founder of MoDaCo, has been a busy little boy.  In what feels like only a matter of hours, he’s been able to flash an unofficial ROM from the HTC Desire onto a Nexus One.  And just to prove things, he snapped a pic of it in action.

According to Paul, it almost everything is operational and Adobe’s Flash 10.1 “works well” so far.  It took a little juggling and tweaking (removing some code), but he’s been able to run it without issues. Among the items he’s confirmed to be working are, the trackball, the 4 bottom keys, proximity sensor, LED, light sensor, compass and G sensor.  Heck the camera;s face recognition and touch focus work too!

We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?

As of now, he has decided not to release this ROM into the wild because of a watermark found within its walls.  Fret not though, as we can’t be that far off from the full-fledged ROM. Sit tight you rooted Nexus One owners!
