    Default The iPhone Clone Project
    We all know the iPhone has many limitations, and that's why people have made clones. But all these clones always have something missing too. I'm not trying to make another clone that basically IS another clone, but a complete new phone that has more features from the iPhone, but still runs the Firmware. SO this is how it works:

    1. Somebody (probably me) comes up with a design
    2. We see what features we need to put in too make this affordable
    3. Either build a prototype or find a company to do so
    4. Find a manufacturer that can mass produce this product

    Current team members:

    Jikoo

    (looking for more)

    The people that we need, have to be quite open and hard thinkers.

    I'm pretty sure the people with this sort of knowledge won't share their secrets with some noob on MMI! Good luck though

    I might be a noob on MMi, but I've been in this Jailbreaking community since the start, under a different name. I have the first Edit ready, and im going to make some more.

    Apple can't touch the clone makers in China because well, they're in China. You try making a clone, and Apple will would wipe the floor with you. Remember Starmax? Probably not. They made Apple clones in the Mid-90's, until Steve came back, and they were gone.

    Eurisko, go easy on the kid, we all had dreams to become famous, rich and lead something big when we were all younger. Obviously, when we were younger, the since of reality isn't as vivid. Jikoo failed to realize the cost that goes into such projects, especially production costs. Apart from the costs, comes the legality issues.

    Most clones run the a stock firmware, or a modified version of Windows Mobile. Jikoo, you outlined broad steps for the clone you are attempting manufacture, however you left out many steps involved.

    Don't do government laws? Your idea will fall as faster than it can began. Obviously, you are very young and naive. How would your company start, if you do not have a single investor. Who would invest into an idea that a promised dead end.

    If your company does start, are finically prepared for the legal phases.

    Chances that this 'project' gets further than a couple of photoshop mock-ups for posting to digg? ZERO POINT ZERO
