Want multitouch on the Google Nexus One's native browser and don't mind a little rooting? Read on. Famed Android cooker cyanogen has whipped up the necessary files. You'll need a rooted Nexus One, the files from here, and then the following command-line commands:

adb shell stop
adb remount
adb shell rm /system/app/Browser.odex
adb push Browser.apk /system/app
adb push /system/framework
adb push /system/etc/permissions
adb shell reboot

Check out video of the end result after the break. Oh, and one more thing. Google's been releasing Android 2.1 source code to the Android Open Source Project today, which means full custom ROMs should be on their way for the Nexus One very shortly.  [via Redmond Pie]
