Well that was fast. (Where have I heard that before…?) If you’ve been taking in all of the non-stop Nexus One info, text, images, and video the last day or so and feeling pretty bummed even with your current Android companion, I’ve got something that should breathe a tad bit of fresh air into your aging friend.

The Android 2.1 ROM that comes stock on the Nexus One has been cracked wide open tonight. While not exactly in the proper form to actually port to any other devices quite yet, all of the goods contained within are ripe for the taking. Ringtones, wallpapers, boot up animations, and pretty much any other multimedia related aspect of Android 2.1 (Flan) can now be yours. As always, XDA is the source of the open source sharing goodness. Best start your downloads now folks.

With the speed at which the multimedia goods have been acquired, I’d give the actual OS another day or two of holding out before it too is breached and replicated for the rest of the civilized world. Android how I love thee…

**Update: Spolier alert — nothing too exciting so far in the way of wallpapers and ringtones. There is a few new gems but otherwise it’s rather standard affair. Now a full 2.1 port to my Droid is another thing…

**Update 2: Engadget is reporting that Android 2.1 has in fact been ported to the Droid. The deed actually was reported on last night shortly after I predicted above that it wouldn’t take much longer and after the fact that I had just laid my head down for a few hours of R&R. One thing must be stressed however — it isn’t a full, complete ROM yet meaning it’s best to hold off until an actual ROM is set loose. Again, as mentioned above, give it a couple days folks.
