Google Nexus S Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS Gets Rooted
Google‘s Nexus S has only been out for a 24 hours and it has already been rooted. Koush, a member of the xda-developers has put together a quick and simple process to achieve this, considering you have rooted devices before and/or have experience in ADB.

Here is an image posted by well known Android developer clockwordmod, which shows Nexus S running custom Clockworkmod recovery.
