Android on iPhone

Print this post Email this post

To spare typing and posting time, I’ll post the link to the guide that I followed:
http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Installing_iDroid_(Linux)

That link is actually for a Linux, so I uses VirtualBox and a Linux (Ubuntu) image file. From there I followed most part of the guide.

However I’ll post my observation (on 2G):

  • It’s running way too sluggish
  • Call sometimes doesn’t work (stuck at the calling, but not really dialing)
  • Phone becomes really warm and battery drain is too much
  • There’s not enough button
  • Overall condition is not really usable for daily use

Couple notes:

  • If Wifi connects but browser not going anywhere, try the DNS fix
  • All “adb” type commands require the download of SDK
  • If Virtual Box can’t connect to the iPhone when doing the ‘./oibc’ portion, you may need to shut down and restart your virtual machine (including the Virtual Box itself)
  • Going to Apple’s recovery mode (for upgraders) from the openiboot would require you to hold the “Menu” button after choosing the iPhone mode
