  • Froyo Unlocked on the iPhone 3G via ultrasn0w

    Sergio McFly, the developer of Android installer iPhodroid, an appication that assists in installing the iDroid port that planetbeing had developed which allowed Android on the 2G and 3G, has recently announced that Froyo can now be unlocked by using the recent ultrasn0w unlock tool. BlueRise's new OpeniBoot is to credit for this as he managed to port ultrasn0w compatiblity into it.

    "Wohooooo!! For the first time I've got my 3G ultrasn0w running Android Froyo UNLOCKED!. Many thanks to bluerise to make this possible. He just ported the ultasn0w into the new OpeniBoot. It took a long time to me to figure out and embed into the IPHODROID. Now, its time to make labs with 2G phone but Im in a rush to put this new release in the air and feel the people so happy to making calls everywhere"
    There is no official release for this, but you can bet that we'll see something shortly. In the meantime check out the developers blogs:

      You know what I don't understand, 2 things:
      I don't understand people that moan about what devs are doing instead of jailbreaks, no wonder Geohot said he's done until he's ready since the community uses him only for jb.

      Number 2, why do peole say the iPhone is the absolute best phone, I have one I love it but can I objectively say it's the best phone i don't know, it depends on the features that interest me considering the droid OS which is pretty damn good I could envision the HTC HD as working perfectly for me as well. I say all that to say this, don't just be apple sheep take a look at everything out there my iPhone does rock though, for now.

      Nice work. However, running this crap is about as dumb as running windows vista soley on a Mac. Or putting a VW bug engine in a Farrari. I'm just saying..... I bought a iPhone for the iPhone. If I wanted a Pinto I would pick up the android for free with a box of Walmarts boxed wine. Guess I'll stay with my farrari and a glass of fine wine. LMAO. A serious note... Great job devs you all never cease to amaze us. To boot you give it to us for free. It's like Christmas every Apple update. Great job!!!

      Well I guess since support for the 2G and the iOS2 and possible iOS3 by next year are going away then 2G users can just use Android updates.

      Yes Planetbeing is part of the iPhone Linux project but from the look of his tweets it seems he is the front runner in the iPhone 4 JB.

      There is only one problem with this and that is that the Motorola Droid hardware is ten times the phone the Iphone is so it is already on a superior hardware, metal bodied, phone natively without any B.S....... and another one promised out shortly that's even better.

      If I liked Android as much as iPhone firmware I'd have jumped ship long ago.

      I can undertand people who have the iPhone just for that reason of working with the iPhone os no matter if it is 2,3,3gs,4. But nevertheless personally i would love to see the android on the iPhone 4 because the 4 has the almost exact hardware specs, with some pluses or minuses, as other android running phones. And the purpose of all that is just to see the difference. I mean why spend money on an android phone when you can have your iPhone doing that? I do not mine buying a programm that does android on iPhone at a good price or donating. If the dev teams that do this decide to port It to the iphone4 well here is one guy who says thanks a lot and where do i donate?

      Just run redsn0w and de-select multitasking /cydia and you should have your iphone speedy again excluding multitasking.
