After getting rooted four days ago, the T-Mobile G2 and its European counterpart, the Desire Z, finally joined the ranks of fully unlocked Android phones, which give us the freedom to replace the ROMs on these devices with something better and more custom.

It took the CyanogenMod team a few days, but the very first CM 6.1 ROM is now available for download. It will work on both the Desire Z and the G2 due to the similarities between the 2 phones.

It was only a matter of time, right?

Carriers' official tethering plans never cease to amaze us - $15 to $30 per month for something that users with rooted phones can enjoy for free via Wireless Tether or Tether for Android (not to mention the free tethering app that comes built right into stock Froyo). Nevertheless, T-Mobile's gone ahead and announced that starting this Sunday, November 14th, its users will be charged $14.99 per month for the feature. This will buy you unlimited data for your laptop/netbook to choke down, although there will also be a $10 monthly plan, which will get you just 200MB of data.

Hungry for even more Nexus S goodness? Looks like you're in luck, for Engadget has just received an entire barrage of photos and other information about Google's next developer device.

Those pictures you're seeing may have been shot about a month ago, but Engadget just posted them now, and they're still perfectly relevant to the Gingerbread-running device.

Perhaps more interestingly, a little digging around on Flickr and Picasa also revealed that the Nexus S will pack a five-megapixel camera and will be known as the Samsung GT-i9020 in the model number world.

It's a wild day for Best Buy Mobile and the Samsung Nexus S, and from the looks of it, it's only going to get wilder.

No, it's not just you - the device on the right-most side of the screenshot above is indeed running Gingerbread (at least judging by the notification bar and its revamped icons), and it is indeed what we've come to know as the Nexus S.

Fear not, stock Android fans - despite a slight delay due to some hardware issues, T-Mobile's Nexus S is still on track, as Best Buy Mobile's website has just confirmed.

The banner you're seeing above is no longer up on Best Buy Mobile's website, and the pre-order link never worked, but there's no denying that this is pretty solid evidence that the Nexus S is indeed real and out there somewhere in the wild.

The rumor mill has already begun rumbling about a possible successor to the current Galaxy Tab, but the Samsung-built gadget has only just come out today, and the (extremely mixed) early reviews have now been published. Reporters from Engadget, Slash Gear, TechRadar, and Gizmodo have all shared their opinions about the device, so join us below for a quick look at each.

Joanna Stern, Engadget's tablet queen, took an in-depth look at Sammy's latest creation, a look which resulted in a final score of 7 out of 10.

Hot on the heels of this morning's full and permanent G2 and Desire Z root, XDA-Devs members (apparently headed by grankin01) have released a similarly full and permanent root for the T-Mobile myTouch 4G. In fact, the method is very nearly the same, in grankin's words:

unforgiven512 [who contributed to the G2 root] deserves most of the credit for this tutorial as all I did was rewrite this tutorial in my own words (while looking at his in another window), edit the kernel module, and paste links to it and the hboot file with this tutorial.

The Nexus One may be growing long in the tooth, but it's still surely one of the most active phones when it comes to development. Hence this hack should come as a surprise to no-one: T-Mobile's WiFi-Calling functionality has been extracted from one Vanilla Froyo running device (the G2) and injected into another, the one and only Google Phone. While this will obviously only work on N1s on the T-Mobile network, it comes as a welcome distraction to those of us waiting for the imminent Gingerbread OTA.

If you're a Vibrant owner interested in custom ROMs, then today is your lucky day. With their Éclair ROM amassing a  400-page thread in under a month, it's safe to say that Team Whiskey's new Obsidian release is going to draw the crowds. Posted on XDA-Developers just moments ago, let's take a look at just what this ROM has to offer:

Obsidian is the first release of Android 2.2, Froyo, from Team Whiskey.
