How Hacker Manages To Port Android To IPhone

This is not a dream folks. A hacker has actually managed to port Android 1.6 OS on the original iphone. Now! it can do everything from making calls to browsing the web etc.........

The hacker who goes by the name of planetbeing has demonstrated the hack in a video using OpeniBoot which is a tool developed to dual-boot the iPhone with the Android OS.
The hacker created Apple-hardware specific drivers for the Android OS to function properly. And to come around the obstacle of lack of physical buttons in iPhone, the hacker re-purposed the volume up and down controls to serve as the call and home buttons for the Android.

Here is what the hacker has to say about it:
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. Maybe we can finally get Flash.
For those with an iPhone 2G, they can head over to planetbeing's blog and follow his progress; even read instructions on how to load the Android OS on their iPhone.
