Nick Pack, an
iDroid developer, has just posted a video of an iPhone
3G running Android 2.3 Gingerbread (video embedded after the
break). It’s pretty sluggish, and the video quality is poor, but the
proof of concept is clear: it’s certainly Android 2.3 on an iPhone.
The same developer went
on to add that it’s still very early days for the port, and
that the “iPhone 4 port is under way and progressing steadily.” Of
course, once it runs on the iPhone 4, the Android 2.3 on the iPad is
just the tiniest of baby steps away.
While a public release of Android 2.3
for iPhone is probably a few weeks away, a stable build of Android
2.2 for iPhone is available from the iDroid site;
installation is pretty easy, and it runs quite well too.
so there you have it. A great way to get the best of both
worlds on an iPhone 3G. I have also left a video clip of this
above for you to have a look at. Though there may have been
performance issues with iOS 4 on the iPhone 3G, I am sure that when a
stable release of Android is ready, it should be usable. As
mentioned above, all of you iPhone 4 owners out there should also be
able to get in on the action soon as there will be a version of Android
for iPhone is in the works at the moment.
However, I should warn you that you will need to jailbreak
your iPhone if you want to try this out for yourselves.
If you own an iPhone or an iPod Touch and have been waiting ages for a jailbreak, then the wait is nearing the end. A member of the Chronic Dev Team(an iPhone jailbreaking team) called P0sixninja has confirmed on his twitter that Greenpois0n will be released by this sunday 10th October 2010 at 10:10:10AM GMT
Greenpois0n has been built in such a way, that Apple could not patch it by using a software update. They would have to release new hardware to patch it up.
His actual tweet said the following:
“Things have progressed to the point where we don’t expect anymore roadblocks. ETA for greenpois0n is 10/10/10 at 10:10:10AM”
I will keep you all informed as to when this jailbreak is ready to download, so be sure to keep checking back. Remember, the date I have given is only an estimated one, meaning it could be released 1 day early. At the time of writing this, the Chronic Dev Team have been testing greenpois0n and making sure everything is perfect before releasing it.
Update as of 8th October 2010: The Chronic Dev Team has just confirmed that the greenpois0n jailbreak will be compatible with the 2nd generation Apple TV, the 4th Generation iPod Touch, the iPhone 4 and the iPad. In addition to this, greenpois0n will be an untethered jailbreak. This means that you will not have to connect your iOS device to your computer and run greenpois0n every time you want to reboot.
