One day after the launch of the Nexus S, the source code for the device’s operating system — Android 2.3 — is being pushed to the Android Open Source Project’s (AOSP) master branch. In a blog post, AOSP engineer Jean-Baptiste M. Queru noted that he was in the throws of getting the code in place. Mr. Queru does however offer this warning:

Even though Nexus S is designed to be suitable for AOSP work, there  are some caveats. I very strongly recommend against trying to use  Nexus S for anything related to AOSP at the moment. Trying to unlock or use your Nexus S for AOSP work could easily turn it into a Nexus B (where B means “brick”); I have two of those, they’re not very useful. I’ll send some guidelines about what is currently possible once I’ve finished pushing the source code.
