If you have a Nexus One running Android 2.1 then there’s some awesome news for you! Nexus One has been hacked to record video in high definition (720p), all thanks to a member of XDA-Developers Forums.
If you think that the Nexus One is unable to do 720p high-definition video recording, then you might seriously want to reconsider this. A member over at XDA-Developers Forums has managed to enable 720p video recording on the Google phone (unofficially of course). Nexus One’s hardware is no doubt amongst the best Android phones available today, and is quite capable of pulling off 720p video recording. Unfortunately though, Android 2.2 Froyo is not supported yet, but that is being worked out right now and soon Froyo users will also be able to enable 720p video recording on their Nexus One.
The instructions are simple, as posted over at XDA Forums:
Requirements– CM5.0.8test3 Will make one for froyo when i get time. Sometime later tonigh U need the new froyo radio
Here u go
