Dev Team member PlanetBeing successfully ported a debug version of Android to an iPhone 2G.

The iPhone is set up with a dual-boot configuration. At the beginning of the video, you can see it running iPhone OS, but then PlanetBeing successfully boots Linux of his iPhone. This video shows the full boot process and PlanetBeing using Android for Internet browsing, text messaging, etc…

On his blog, PlanetBeing says:

It should be pretty simple to port forward to the iPhone 3G. The 3GS will take more work. Hopefully with all this groundwork laid out, we can make Android a real alternative or supplement for iPhone users. Maybe we can finally get Flash. 😉

Feel like having Android run on your iPhone too? You can download the pre-built images and sources here. I suggest you do not try this unless you really know what you’re doing.

Anyone will give this a shot?

    I’ve got a 3g and a 3gs. I could try it on my 3g I reckon. I have no idea what I’m doing but I’ll look at it when I get home

    @ Sebastien….I guess you took my advice and finally wrote about this Android on the iPhone thing that has been buzzing on the internet the last two days. Great article overall!!

    Oh and I will be trying this on Saturday after I come back from playing softball. I’ll hit you up and sent you a link to the YouTube video!

    • @Alex Yes, thanks for giving the advice. Don’t hesitate to email or twitter me if you want to send tips about news stuff.

  • Polemicist

    I already have my hand up to beta test this on a 3G… 🙂

  • I don’t get why Adobe don’t just release Flash in cydia.
    Just imagine the publicity Jailbreaking would get.

  • Alex

    They won’t because in their eyes Cydia is some sort of version of Napster or LimeWire. They look at it as some sort of illegal source where you can get apps/mods that aren’t authorized by Apple. Don’t get me wrong Eldaria, I would love to see Flash get released in Cydia myself! I’m tired of watch YouTube videos and not the ones I really want to see like those on HULU or Anyways, I think Adobe should give Apple an option to either let them release Flash to the iPhone or they pull their software from all Macs.

  • Wonder if you can do that with the iPod Touches 1st and 2nd gen. i have a seecond gen. i really hope. im currently scripting and taking up ALL advice for anAndroid Market and installer for the idevices. all of them.

  • i mean “an Android Market”

  • @Eldaria Because that would violate their SDK agreement. They do release apps in the AppStore.

  • Good job.
    Steve jobs dont like this app.
    May be open apple store for this app.

    Down the liine, can you also show instructions to have Android be the sole OS on the iphone? Thanks!
