Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) Ported To iPhone 3G

Froyo ported to iPhone 3G

Last month, we had reported that planetbeing from the iPhone Dev Team had successfully ported the Android OS to iPhone 3G.

An Italian team of hackers have recently revealed that they have been able to install Android 2.2 dubbed Froyo, the latest version of Android OS on iPhone 3G.

Italian website iDroid  reports that users will have the ability to call and send text messages from the hacked iPhone 3G running Android 2.2. 

Android 2.2 running on iPhone 3G mostly works fine except for few issues. For instance, the Android OS currently does not recognize the Wi-Fi and audio functionalities on the iPhone. Also, the handset is reported to get noticeably hot within a few minutes of use. We expect these issues to be addressed in a future update to the ported OS version.
