[How To] Root Google Nexus S With ClockworkMod Recovery
Google’s Nexus S that went on sale yesterday has been rooted by Koush, a member of the xda-developers community who created ClockworkMod recovery and ROM Manager. ROM Manager support is coming very soon, but in the meantime, you can get your Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered Nexus S rooted and ClockworkMod installed by following these easy instructions, courtesy of Koush:
First, reboot into your bootloader/fastboot mode. (Volume + Power Up, or adb reboot bootloader)
fastboot oem unlock
Then, install ClockworkMod recovery, crafted specifically for the Nexus S:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-herring.img
Boot into Clockwork recovery and install the Superuser zip file (adb reboot recovery, or from fastboot choose recovery).
There you go, now you are rooted – these dev-friendly, easily unlockable phones simply rock, don’t they?
