Install Android 2.3.1 Gingerbread on iPhone, iPod touch

The latest updates which we received regarding Android 2.3.1 is that Android 2.3.1 Gingerbread has been released for iPhone 3G, iPhone 2G and iPod touch 1st generation. Nick Pan, who earlier posted a teaser video, has released a complete set of instructions on how to install Android 2.3.1 on iPhone device using OpeniBoot. Catch the video along with how-to instructions after the break!

Those who don’t know, OpeniBoot allows the booting of unsigned code, which means developers can inject their own Linux kernels onto jailbroken Apple devices. OpeniBoot then allows you to run a dual boot on the iPhone and when you start your Apple device you will be prompted to select the operating system of your choice. Nick pack is working to port the same hack to install Android 2.3.1 into iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPad but no ETA has been cited so far.
Being an alpha release, the OS is not completely stable, if you are not having a basic understanding of OS X terminal commands, we do not recommend you install iDroid on youriPhone or iPod Touch for the time being. iDroid is NOT compatible with the Spirit Jailbreaknor is it compatible with the jailbreakme. Make sure you first jailbreak your device either using Redsn0w or PwnageTool. You may then download the binaries and install android oniPhone manually using the instructions posted below for Mac OS, Windows and Linux. For latest updates stay with us............
