Video: iPhone to run Android
Ok, so Apple aren’t rolling out Android to their new iPhone heading our way this summer, but you will soon be able to run the Android OS on your old iPhone. For real! iPhone hacker and Dev-Team member Planetbeing has been “working on this quietly in the background” but now he has Android successfully working on the iPhone (well, for the most part).
In order to get this to work you need OpeniBoot on your iPhone, which enables you to boot linux. This too is created by Planetbeing. It goes without saying that this is a great achievement, but given the iPhone’s hardware, the only real thing it had going for it was the Apple iPhone OS. Now this is gone, there really isn’t a good reason why one wouldn’t just buy a cheaper device that already has Android running on it. It is likely that this cheaper device will still offer better hardware specifications.
