Linux Ported on the iPhone 3G: Wow.

We all know by now that the iPhone Dev Team does some amazing work. For example, just last week they updated the jailbreaking tools QuickPwn and PwnageTool to jailbreak the latest 2.2 firmware. Some more interesting news is coming your way because one of their members has ported Linux onto the iPhone 3G!

In a nutshell, here is the big news:

Devteam member planetbeing has done a phenomenal job reverse engineering Apple’s hardware drivers and now for the first time ever, linux is available on the iPhone and first-gen iPods.

Check out the following video of OpeniBoot in action (it’s a Vimeo hosted video, so you won’t be able to watch the video on your iPhone)!
