Hacker dual-boots iPhone to run Android OS

A member of the a group called the iPhone Dev Team devoted to hacking iPhones posted a video demonstrating Google's Android operating system on an Apple iPhone.

David Wang, the 'planetbeing' member of the a group called the iPhone Dev Team devoted to hacking iPhones, on Wednesday posted a video demonstrating Google's Android operating system on an Apple iPhone.

The demo shows the boot process — complete with the Tux Linux mascot — and Wang using Android for browsing, receiving a text message, answering a phone call and playing music. The phone is set up with a dual-boot configuration and indeed the video begins with the device running iPhone OS.

"It's not really production-quality yet," Wang said on the video. "I'd say it's alpha quality. But pretty much everything works."
