Android 2.2 ported to the iPhone 3G

We’ve already seen Android 1.6 ported over to the iPhone 3G, but now Android fans with questionable tastes in hardware can load up Android 2.2 on the hottest device circa 2008. In its present state, Froyo on the iPhone 3G runs about as well as a crippled gazelle, but with a bit of time and a lot of elbow grease, things should pick up. We’ve got a video of the hack in action, but if you’re feeling rather adventurous, all of the instructions and materials you’ll need to get the job done are awaiting you after the break.

Android gets ported to the iPhone 3G

Android fanboys with a fetish for Apple hardware should pay close attention to this one, as Google’s smartphone OS has been successfully ported over to the iPhone 3G. Much like the OpeniBoot Android port for the first-gen iPhone, most of the OS’ features and functions are working properly, although at this time audio has yet to be ported into the Linux kernel. No worries though, as all of this and more, including backlight controls and power management, are nearing completion. Desperate to try it out? Sadly it will take a few days before all of the binaries are posted, however in the meantime we have the video after the jump to help pass the time. More →

Listen: We’ve been doing this for a long time and it’s incredibly hard for a single story to make us drop our jaws, but this is something special. A functional version of Android has been successfully ported over to the iPhone, complete with the ability to dual-boot. It’s still alpha quality despite most features working, but if you have a spare iPhone lying around and don’t mind putting in a little bit of work, hit up the jump to watch one of the greatest videos uploaded to YouTube and then load OS on your iPhone.
