These are instructions on how to install Google's Android operating system on your iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G using iPhoDroid 1Shot.

Step One
To perform these instructions you must first jailbreak your iPhone. You can find instructions on how to do that using the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard. It is strongly recommended that you use RedSn0w to jailbreak rather then a userland jailbreak such as JailbreakMe.

After jailbreaking your iPhone make sure to open Cydia and make sure your installed packages are up to date.


Step Two
Download the latest version of iPhoDroid. The download link is at the bottom left of the page.

You will be informed that your iPhone is being placed into Recovery Mode.

Is Android really open source and FREE? I was just wondering about a webpage I came across at: http://www.androidoniphone.com/ These guys are selling AndroidforiPhone and I am concerned that this website might be fraudulent. Please comment on this if this website is genuine or not?

Very very nice. Only what I`ve notice is my iphone 3g is hot a little bit more than usually... Maybe battery goes more faster...But what I like the most you can always chose if you want apple or android. THANKS AND PLEASE KEEP IT UP
