    and news on working on the 2g port?? i dont really see why he is porting an alpha level os to another phone before getting all the functionality to work. ex: the sd card error, unable to connect to the iphone memory for contacts, messages and music, no camera. it just seems pointless to port it to the 3g and 3gs when its still useless...

    Well I always thought it was strange why a person would put Windows XP or any Microsoft OS and that chime on a MacBook etc its just cool to do! Bring it on Android/iPhone

    Well said.

    This is no skin of your back, it doesn't cost you anything or take up any of your time, if someone else wants to spend their time doing something like this it's their prerogative.

    Personally its software. Although it is very limited, a jailbreak makes the iphone incomparable to anything else out there. So im confused why people want android on their phone. Pretty cool though.
    Exactly right and you don't even know it. Android IS part of the software that makes the iPhone platform so cool. I can do what Apple wants me to do through the App store, and I can do what they don't want me to do through Cydia/Rock etc.

    This is one of the many pieces of software that are available that make the iPhone so cool.

    Hats off to planetbeing for doing a knock out job on the android os so far. I personally can't wait to see it up and running. But with that said I really be pumped if he was doing this with WebOS instead. But that's just my thoughts.

    Hurrah! The light at the end of the tunnel is much closer...really, the major kick up Apple's *** would be for this to work on the 'yet to be released 4G'...

    This has already paved the way (as have a few other stuff) for what can and can't be done on the iphone, bringing it to closer to true jailbroken freedom!

    For those wondering why we would want Android OS on the iPhone, let me ask you this question:

    why does a dog lick his balls?...

    ... because he can ^_^

    This is awesome. The people who do this kind of thing (porting, jailbreaks etc) are pure genius!

    I can't to go up to my mate who works at the Apple store (and worships Jobs) and say "mate, check out this new app, its about robots and ****..."

    so then if so, why are you here in a jailbreak community where its all about mods and changing everything of that perfect software and hardware to something even greater?
    is your phone jailbroken? why did u do that and not leave it plain?

    Because your opinion is the same as everyone's? .. Actually I know a lot of people who install windows on mac because they have to for some reason or another.

    I dual boot windows on my mac because as a long time musician there are some software packages I've gotten used to and I'm just more efficient at in the windows environment. I'm moving away from it slowly, but still .. we all have our reasons.. Why do I want to install Android on my iPhone? because I can...

    EXCELLENT analogy my friend! I'm personally dying for this to come out of alpha into beta before I try putting it on my 3G.

    I love my iPhone, but I highly dislike Apple. Tell me, how many times has Microsoft busted down a blogger's door when he wasn't home because he had leaked some info on the next Windows OS?

    When I first got my iPhone, I was an Apple fanboy. Now, ever since they've been making the leash shorter and shorter, its been suffocating.

    To be honest, I'm waiting 'til AT&T releases a subsidized version of either the Google Nexus One or the HTC Desire (not everyone can afford the unsubsidized version). The hardware specs stomps on Apple's iPhones, and Google's "Developer Freedom" sounds very appealing to both developers and tech savvy consumers like myself.

    So in the meantime, I plan on porting to Android as soon as possible, atleast until I can have the N1/Desire.

    As for anyone that has a problem with this - this is merely my opinion. To each his own. LoL remember the war between Berry users and iUsers!?!

    I completely agree with your sentiments. I still love my iPhone, but I've grown less and less fond of Apple (and my carrier AT&T). The more I learn about them, the less I want to support them as a company. As far as the iPhone OS having superior software, everything superior about the software on my phone has come directly from the jailbreak community, whether it be current jailbroken apps or jailbroken features Appple has incorporated into its operating system.

    If we could take some of the amazing minds we have in the jailbreak community and apply them to developing on an open platform like Android, the iPhone to Android comparison would be like dial-up to broadband.

    Take the JB out of the iPhone what do you have? A limited, boring device that will never realize it's potential.

    Very true mate, I agree completely. I still think the iphone does what it does brilliantly, but I don't think I could live with a stock 3G on 3.x. If I removed my jailbreak now, I'd miss SBSettings, backgrounder, winterboard, music controls etc - I'd have to jailbreak again!

    OTOH, even though android is much more open and less restricted, I can't help but feel it is just a fancy phone. OK, I now the iPhone (duh) is a fancy phone, but it feels more like an all in one device with a phone as one of the many features. I just don't like the look of android, but I will without a doubt be dual booting it onto my 3G when this comes out so I can have a proper play around with it!

    AGREEEEEEED!!!

    I'll give it to you- iPhone device beauty= Yes; A+++++

    OS Software= Android eats it alive in just about every category!!! - customization, speed, looks, etc, etc...
