Previously we have showed you how to unlock Google Nexus S Bootloader to install custom ROMs. Now some hackers over XDA developers are successful in rooting Nexus S device. So what are the advantages of getting full root access of the Google handset ????
By getting the complete root access will give you full file system access of your Android handset. After doing it, you will be able to do anything with its firmware. That means you can modify its operating system files and inject in your own code for many things. Remember you are on Google Android Gingerbread 2.3 version with Google Nexus S.
How-to guide to get full Root Access on Nexus S as posted on XDA-Developers forums:
First, reboot into your bootloader/fastboot mode as metioned above. (Volume + Power Up, or adb reboot bootloader)
fastboot oem unlock
Then, install this recovery:
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-herring.img
Then boot into Clockwork recovery and install the Superuser zip file (adb reboot recovery, or from fastboot choose recovery):
To install a rooted/insecure boot image (adb has root):
fastboot flash boot rootboot.img
