Easily Install Android on iPhone 2G and 3G with iPhoDroid

Posted on June 6, 2010 by

We had reported a couple weeks ago that the Android OS was now available for both the iPhone 2G and 3G, but now it is much easier to install thanks to iPhoDroid.

From Redmond Pie:

Thanks to iPhoDroid, you can now install Android on your iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G faster and easier than ever before. We have already covered detailed guides on how to install Android on your iPhone 2G and 3G, but they were long and complicated. With iPhoDroid, you’ll be able to install Android on your iPhone with iBoot within minutes.

The installation instructions are pretty straight forward. Follow the instructions below to get Android and iPhone OS running on your device in a dual boot combination.

Step 1: You’ll need to have a jailbroken iPhone 2G or 3G on OS 3.1.2. If you are jailbroken onOS 3.1.3 with Spirit then you will need to downgrade back to OS 3.1.2. To make it more clear, you must be jailbroken using either redsn0wPwnageTool or blackra1n on OS 3.1.2, not Spirit.

Step 2: Download iPhoDroid version 0.6 from here, MacFuse from here and install them on your Mac.

Step 3: Make sure you have connected your phone to a WiFi network and that you have OpenSSH installed on it. Instructions for installing OpenSSH on iPhone can be found here.

Step 4: Run iPhoDroid and simply follow the onscreen instructions, install iBoot when you are asked to, and within next few minutes, you’ll be running two of the best mobile OS (iPhone OS and Android) on your iPhone.
