Thread: A weird idea
07-06-2010, 01:21 PM #1A weird idea
would it be possible to dual-boot the iPod Touch OS on to my laptop? it is an operating system after all

Lol why would you want to? You can use vnc to make your idevice comeup on the screen.. Like in it's own program, but not booting straight from the os..
Main reasons being iOS won't be compatible with the cpu, hard disk, flash memory.. Basically everything on your computer will be incompatible

VNC loads from the touch, i'd want to be able to have my 300GB, faster ram, the camera function linked to my webcam, etc etc.

All things design and media including themes/skins, questions about media like ringtones and video, along with some wallpaper thrown in.

Porting it to x86 (or any CPU of your choice) is not a big challenge, since Google makes all the core system freely available.
iOS is is a closed-source operating system based on Darwin (a partly open, ASPL'd OS).
Porting it to x86 (or anything else) will not happen without the source, which Apple has no incentive to release.
See the difference?

Apple likes to have control over their stuff They will most likely never make it open source.

Eventually, possibly. Apple would probably sue them to death for something.

People who steal and "leak" commercial source code tend to spend years in jail. That's the industry norm.
Apple comes down pretty savagely on people who make much more innocent errors.
The Carrot isn't big enough, but the Stick is pretty huge.
BTW, this isn't how ports (or leaks) work.

Still, we all know Apple would sue you for it. I'm sure nobody is willing to go to jail over a freaking source code.

that's a valid point, but some people have bad intentions with source codes...

I never said someone would, I just mean that they COULD have bad intentions.
