Android 2.3 Gingerbread: iPhone 3G Port – Download Now

By Updated on

Have you always wanted to try out Android OS on your iPhone but never got round to doing it? If so, you may be interested in this latest port, which brings Android 2.3 Gingerbread to the iPhone 2G, 3G and iPod Touch.

As reported from RedmondPie, we have a video to show you now, which confirms that this does indeed work and Android 2.3 Gingerbread – the latest version of Android for smartphones, can run on Apple’s iPhone and the first generation iPod Touch.

In order to perform this nifty trick, you’ll need to have a jailbroken handset, on either iOS 4.2.1 or 4.1 if you used the previous LimeRa1n method from hacker of the moment Geohot. If you want to give this a go, you’ll find the download links and instructions via this link.

Judging by the video below, we can see that the build is running pretty slow, which is why the download has been dubbed a ‘preview release’ only. We’re guessing that a much more smoother version is next on the cards, and you’ll be pleased to know that an iPhone 4 and iPad version is coming soon too.

If you have a iPhone 2G, 3G or iPod Touch 1G, try it out now by visiting the link above. For those of you who have previous experience trying out Android ports on iOS, is it worth the hassle or not?
