Thread: iPhone Linux

    Default iPhone Linux
    Is this still going to happen, or is it a dead thought? I bricked my iPod Video trying to install it, so I wouldnt put it on my iPhone anyway.But still, a cool thing.

    Its being worked on by the same guy developing WinPwn, so I think he is a bit more focused on WinPwn than iPhone Linux right now...

    Default Drivers, drivers, drivers...
    Well, this highly depends on a working kernel. If you can't find / make hardware drivers for the touchscreen / wireless modem / wifi, there is little point in developing a linux install. Don't forget that most of the slick UI was already written by Apple, and the source code isn't available. Recreating that with X.org may be tricky.
