Android OS Running On iPhone

Adobe to stop Flash to iPhone compiler investment

We have already seen Linux ported on iPhone and Windows running on a hacked iPhone.

planetbeing of the iPhone Dev team member who was credited for porting Linux to the iPhone has just announced that he has successfully ported Android OS to the iPhone with help from CPICH, harmn1, posixnina, jean, marcan, saurik, and TheSeven.

planetbeing reports:

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.

planetbeing has published a YouTube video of Android OS running on the iPhone 2G:

As you can see, Android OS on iPhone seems to work quite well. You also seem to have the choice of either running Android OS or iPhone OS, which is pretty cool.

This means that even though Adobe has stopped working on Adobe for Flash, we could still see Flash running on the iPhone.

Lets us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Thanks Nicholas, TimW and Karl for the tip!
