Android is Now Available for Installation on the iPhone 3G

Android is now available for installation on both the iPhone 2G and the iPhone 3G thanks to the hard work of planetbeing and those assisting him.

You can download the binaries here: iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G

Planetbeing has also written instructions for installing Android which you can find here

The steps are basically the same as before, except you can put the firmware in a directory on the iPhone OS data partition. This means that you don't have to modify the ext2 partition as before. One thing I didn't mention is that you could perform the installation on OS X without a Linux VM if you recompile loadibec and oibc. Otherwise, the directions are the same.

Congratulations to all those who contributed to making this possible.

So does anyone know if iPod touch 3g will get this!?

i am not really sure why the hell someone wants to replace the almost perfect stable OS of the iphone with Android. I tested all , windows, Android 1.6-2.1 and palm os, nothing comes even near to the apple OS in terms of usability, speed and stability. Feels for me like taking the porsche engine out and replace it with a GM one

its still a major breakthrough... by some time it will get better obviously.. and the main reason for this an alternative choice for some one like me to mess around with.. there is no one forcing you to dual boot.. don't like it? keep it your self.

If this is some kinda 'mine is bigger than yours and I'm free to do as I please' message to Apple, Jobs & Gang, it's awesome. Bravo. Well done to the whole crew that contributed to this breakthrough & success. Great job. On the other hand, I'll hold-off this experiment until the procedure(s)' a cakewalk.

I waited for this to be released, but its just not ready for prime time. The install is quite lengthy and requires you to install Linux if your on a Windows machine.. I will wait until power management is working and the battery lasts more than an hour.

Will you guys make a Tutorial for it?

i'd be all over this if it didn't seem like such a ridiculously complicated process. i'm going to wait until it works 100% before even putting in the effort.

Yes, we might need to wait till it allows to make a call and receive. Currently as per the video, the receiver cannot hear the caller ...
