Android running on an iPhone 2G

A year after getting the Linux kernel running on the iPhone, David Huang (sp?) – “better known as planetbeing on the Internet” – has returned to his iPhone 2G hacking and demonstrates in the video below his dual-boot iPhone/Android setup. Using the OpeniBoot boot loader, one has only to hold down the iPhone’s home button in order to run Google’s OS as an alternative. Incidentally, the volume buttons function as the home and call buttons in Android! David considers this version of the hack Alpha quality but says that pretty much everything works. If you like what David has done here, check out his website and donate some cash or coding skills.
