    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.

      Wow, that's badass. If this is possible to do on a 3gs once the jailbreak is out I will be donating 100$to him. Great work!

      1. You need to have the original iPhone.
      2. Theres a readme file inside, if you open it with notepad or anything like that it'll give you pretty good directions.

      I know, I wouldn't mind giving it a try but will probably just slap iPhone OS back on if they make it for the 3GS.

      I've still got my old 3G. Hopefully they get it working on it before too long. I would love to be able to use it for something other than an alarm clock again!

      I bet Steve and Eric have something more to talk about their next cafe meeting.

      Eric: So I see my OS is on your iPhone now.
      Steve: Yea, but you still can't have mine on your's.

      People who did this already... Does the phone need to be unlocked or does the programming allow it to use any sim card?

      This guy is so self-deprecating in the video, but damn dude, you're a freakin genius. Perhaps he needs a few more pats on the back, because what he's done here is amazing. Google take heed! You should be hiring this man immediately. If he had a few more resources and he fully dedicated his time to this project Google could easily allow Android to be installed on the millions of iPhones and iPod Touches of the world. How on Earth would that not be a massive boon to Google? Hire this guy soon, or someone else will! Great job! I love my iPhone but I would LOVE the ability to give it some Android love as well. Who wouldn't?
