  • planetbeing Boots Android on iPhone
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yO2KQHkt4A&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - Android running on iPhone[/ame]


    David Wong - better known as Dev-Team member planetbeing - has just announced that he got an iPhone to dual boot Android and the iPhone OS. The genius hacker who ported the Linux 2.6 kernel to the iPhone in 2008 says he's been working on the Android port "quietly in the background." He "wanted to make sure everything was usable," after getting some reaction to the initial iPhone Linux release

    Images as well as sources are located here - he calls it "alpha quality" and "slightly buggy," but "pretty much everything works."

    This is going to be huge.

      We could actually emulate an SD card after rooting the iDroid. It could be any size, from 100MB to a possible maximum of 2GB.

      Odd, this method did not work for me, stuck in Linux mode forever. It would seem either the instructions are incomplete or the files are corrupt seeing how I can get Android running with PlanetBeing's files.

      The lack of buttons in the itouch 1g poses as a problem. Who knows when/if we'll get some of the love.

      Thanks for putting all of those question marks.. I'm sure that was really motivating.

      They probably want to get everything working first. Like sound.

      So can we just get an image that already contains all the gApps and is rooted, etc?

      If so can we just overwrite the image in this thread and it work normally?

      To AJ and others who are interested in this project, theres an official site for it and on the wiki there is a status page. Check it out if you want to get updates. (Sorry if it seems like I'm advertising, I'm just trying to help out.)

      I am delighted that you posted the link. Trawling through 11 pages of posts when you've only just come to the thread is a royal pain: especially when the first link to the download is dead. This way I get a lot more info without having to install... yet. Been wondering what to do with my 2G phone!
