OpeniBoot set to unleash Android on your iPad and iPhone 4 [video]
p style="text-align: left;">
Want to run Android on your iPhone 4 or iPad? Well hot on the heels of the release of OpeniBoot based Bootlace which enables you to run Android on an iPhone 2G, 3G and first generation iPod touch, comes this little gem of information. OpeniBoot will soon be available for the iPhone 4 and more appealing, the iPad. OpeniBoot is an open source implementation of iBoot bootloader for Apple iOS based devices. It allows booting of unsigned code such as Linux kernels on the device.
The video above shows the early stages of the hack running on an iPad and demonstrates that it should be possible. No word on when this may become available, but it looks like it is not going to be too far off. As with all of these hacks, you will need to jailbreak your device.
Take a look at the video after the break and let us know, would you like to do this? Would it not be a backward step from the safe and stable iOS? Let us know in the comments.
