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 .

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 can't wait to play with that on my 3GS. Nice work planetbeing.

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

Android Finally Ported To iPhone!
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.

I can't wait until someone can improve on the readme to help the rest of us run android.
