    I don't know much about Android, but nice work -- Anything that helps "open up" the great hardware that is the iPhone/ iPod Touch is a great thing!

    The guy knows he is a genius. Smart people do not have to use "big words" to show how smart he is, he let his work talk for him. Only stupid people try to use "big words" to make themselves seem smart.

    Someone should leave a iPhone running Android in that bar as a little joke .

    Holy crap! planetbeing rules! He did Linux, now the Android! Amazing! Now, we need Bootcamp for the iPhone.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

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?
    exactly what i was thinking, well not exactly but very close to. this guy is money and he doesn't even know it. Keep up the good work. sky is the limit for you buddy.

    Got a friend that is about to get a diffrent phone from his 2G that I sold him. Think I may have to buy it back from them to give this a spin.

    I would love the option to dual boot. Too bad I sold both of my 2g phones.

    Default Android Finally Ported To iPhone!
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yO2KQHkt4A[/ame]



    Deep down, we all knew this day would come. planetbeing, a well-known member of the iPhone Dev Team, has finally released a video and download of a port of Android 1.6 (Donut) to the first-generation iPhone. He has been working on his "Linux on the iPhone" project for quite a while now, and even apologizes for it "taking so long." He has actually modified the iPhone's bootloader to his own custom build he refers to as "OpeniBoot." There's no telling at this point in time if this could open up the possibilities of other operating systems, mobile or otherwise, to eventually run on the iPhone, but as of now, only iPhoneOS and Android are options.

    If you are not an advanced user, I highly recommend staying away from this; it appears to be an extremely involved installation process. Also, it is only for the 2G iPhone (and Apple said the 2Gs would be getting any future updates, hah). He claims that a release for the 3G shouldn't require too much change to the code, but a 3G S release is still a way off (which is quite understandable, considering the new, more secure bootroms Apple has been using in the 3G S phones).

    Check out his blog post, video, and download here.
