Nexus One: Android Hackers enables browser multitouch

The floodgates opened for Android hackers today now that Google started pushing Android 2.1 source code to the AOSP or Android Open Source Project. Just what the modders needed to give the Nexus One software enhancements or a complete custom ROM. 

The Nexus One lacking browser multitouch have been a huge bummer for many users, but luckily the first hack released today for Android 2.1 is a browser multitouch enabler. To install the hack, grab the files from XDA-Developers and read this guide if you have no idea how to install it via ADB. 

The first few Nexus One custom ROMs should arrive in just days. We'll keep you guys posted!
