Xda Developer Hacks Google’s Nexus Q: Runs CyanogenMod, Apps And Netflix

Kornyone, a developer in the popular xda-developers forum has unlocked Google’s Nexus Q and installed CyanogenMod’s Trebuchet launcher. He’s also explained how to use a USB mouse and keyboard to navigate Android and run apps.

He’s also been able to get Netflix to run on the Nexus Q as well as a browser. Angry Birds and the Google+ app work fine, he says.

If it’s the same Google we know, they’ll be glad someone has figured out how to give the device more power. Android is open for that anyways, although the post says the hack bypasses a disclaimer.
