iPhone Dev Team Member Gets Android Running on an iPhone

This isn’t an April Fools joke, or some kid trying to get attention. This hacker, known as “planetbeing” actually got the Android operating system running on a 1st gen iPhone. Apparently, it is still real buggy, but he was able to acomplish a “dual boot” iPhone. Upon start up, you have to choose between iPhone OS or Android. You may know planetbeing from the iPhone Dev Team. They are the team who brought us jailbreak tools like Pwnage Tool and redsn0w.

This only works on the original iPhone right now, but he hopes to having it running on the iPhone 3G and 3GS some time in the future.
