Well, hell has officially frozen over. The iPhone, which has been at odds with Google’s own Android OS, has been hacked to run its nemesis mobile operating system. What you see here is a video proving that Android can indeed run on the Apple phone, with dual-boot capabilities, no less. There have been other Android-on-iPhone videos, but they’ve been full of hot air – this one, though, is totally legit.
The video shows the Google OS dual-booting on one of Apple’s original handset by way of the dualiBoot loader that iPhone hacker planetbeing cooked up in his spare time. The Android OS isn’t completely functional, but we do see that touch inputs are more than adequately supported, as is the WiFi radio.
Now, the question is – when planetbeing polishes his Android-on-iPhone hack to the point where regular Joe iPhoneUser can boot Android on his iPhone, will anyone want to actually use it? If you’re an iPhone user, you probably decided a while ago that you’re down with Cupertino and shunning Mountain View. Or, are you more open-minded than that? Sound off in the comments below!
