    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.

    Default Linux on the iPhone
    If no one has yet heard, there is now a way to dual boot the old iPhones (yay me) into iPhoneOS or Android!!!
