The prospect of a dual-booting Apple iPad, iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS capable of loading iOS or Android is one step closer, with a new version of OpeniBoot
that can apparently run on the newer Apple devices. Arch modder Hexxeh
has been demonstrating the updated tool, which allows booting of unsigned code such as Linux kernels on devices.
Until now, OpeniBoot has been limited to the first-gen iPhone, iPhone 3G and first-gen iPod touch. We're not quite at stable dual-booting stage yet, but if you've always liked the look of Apple hardware but miss your Android fix, this could be one way of achieving it.
