Nexus Q gets the XDA treatment: root it, unlock it, ROM it, love it
When the Nexus Q was first announced by Google, it was no secret that they were encouraging hackers to get their hands on it. Google said they wanted rommers, modders, and tweakers to get to customizing and messing with the Q right away. The social streamer device has gotten what it wanted, and XDA has started doing their thing.
Over at XDA, we’re now seeing instructions on rooting, unlocking the bootloader, installing custom ROMs, and now getting custom launchers onto the device. NetFlix is even now running on it. Hit the break to see a video from the XDA forums, showing off the Nexus Q and its new launcher, as well as some new functionality. You can also click the source link to go to the official XDA thread.
