iPhone running Android OS

Computers & Mobile Technology

From the folks who brought us Linux on iPhone comes Android OS booting on iPhone. Master iPhone hacker planetbeing and crew have managed to dual-boot a 2G iPhone into what appears to be a mostly functional Android 1.6. The obvious hardware limitations aside, they’ve got Wi-Fi and GSM working on boot. It’s still fairly recent, but it looks like it will become fairly solid sooner rather than later.

It’s nice to know that there’s an alternative upgrade path for the first generation hardware when Apple decides to drop support for the 2G. [via Gizmodo]
