modaco-logoGoogle Nexus One is rumoured to be released on January 5, in a special Android press event which is going to be held at the Google Headquarters in Mountain View.

Just a week before its release, Paul over at Modaco Forums has already managed to root the Nexus One and release a custom boot image called as Superboot.

This boot image is reported to work perfectly fine and gives the user full root access to the Android 2.1 running on your Nexus One.

According to Paul, this boot image needs no messing up with adb commands or anything else.

Superboot is a boot.img that when flashed, will root your device the first time you boot (installing su and the superuser APK). No need to flash the system partition, no need to use ADB, no messing with the contents of your data partition, no overwriting the shipped ROM on your device, just flash the boot image.
