Planetbeing earlier ported Android 2.2 Froyo on iPhone using open iBoot which was only limited to iPhone 3G. iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS running Android OS will soon be a Reality! Cpich3g , a member of the Dev Team who was earlier engaged in the iPhone Linux project, stated that he has managed to patch the kernel so as to accept NOR images that exceed the predetermined size limit. The phrase does not mean anything for many, but it seems that they have made significant progress in installing Android on the iPhone 4. Even Pod2g has also confirmed about iDroid installation on iPhone 4 in reply to one of the users.
Patched kernel to accept oversized NOR images, lucky there is room left – 1 step closer to userland idroid installation (for older devices)
Aligreens asked pod2g who re-tweeted Cpich3g tweet :
Does this mean we’ll see Android on the iPhone 4 soon?
Pod2g replied on a positive note:
yeah, why not ? :)
