Google Nexus S Running MeeGo OS
By on January 10th, 2011

Steve Straughton the guy who got MeeGo v1.1 up and running on a HTC HD2 has come up with another awesome hack. He has managed to get the Nokia’s highly anticipated MeeGo OS running on the Google Nexus S. For getting the MeeGo OS to run on their Nexus S, users need to flash a custom kernel.

After that, they need to use the fastboot feature to boot the MeeGo OS on their handset using a rootfs image file. Users can also dual-boot between MeeGo and Gingerbread, if they wish to do so.

Now the million dollar question which is usually associated with these hacks What works and what does not? Except for adb root access and the UI apps, nothing works – Touchscreen, Wi-Fi, data, calls, GPS – nothing. In fact, the SAMOLED screen brightness control option also does not work, which means users will have a tough time to see what’s being displayed on screen.

Nexus S owners who are interested in running MeeGo OS on their handset can find the installation steps here.
