Step 1: You’ll need to have a jailbroken iPhone 2G or 3G on OS 3.1.2. If you are jailbroken on OS 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 redsn0w, PwnageTool or blackra1n on OS 3.1.2, not Spirit.
Step 3: Make sure you have connected your phone to a WiFi 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.

some hackers managed to port Android on the Apple iPhone. For those of you who were a little hesitant on trying it out because of all the advanced instructions; here is a simple step by step guide for you (courtesy of Android A Alot) which will enable you to dual-boot Android with iPhone OS on iPhone 2G.
The process involves 5 stages: from downloading all the required stuff, to preparation, configuring Virtual Box with Ubuntu, to getting Android on iPhone and so on. Each stage then has lots of steps which you will need to follow. The reason why the guide is long is because everything has been detailed, and broken down so that even a newbie can get it to work on ajailbroken iPhone 2G.
Disclaimer: This guide is for testing & educational purposes only. Follow it on your own risk. We are not responsible for any loss of important data, malfunctioning or bricking of your iPhone.
And here are the instruction for installing Android on your iPhone. Note: This guide is for the original iPhone 2G (EDGE) only.
UPDATE: Video guide for all the instructions has been added at the bottom of this page.
Here’s a bunch of stuff that you’ll need before you start:
- IMPORTANT! Jailbroken iPhone 2G. Jailbreaking guide can be found here.
- VirtualBox (link). Get the right version Windows/Mac
- VirtualBox Ubuntu Image (link). Download number 10, Ubuntu Linux 9.10 codename Karmic Koalax86
- iPhone Explorer (link). If you’re on Linux you can use FTP such as FileZilla instead.
- Android images and sources (link)
- Patched images (link). Courtesy of Geekoid.
Let’s get some of the basics out of the way:
- Open Task Manager
- Kill the iTunes Helper process
- Install iPhone Explorer
- Connect your iPhone to your Mac/PC
- Run iPhone Explorer
- Click the Change Root button
- Select “/” Real iPhone Root Directory
- Browse to private/var
- Copy ramdisk.img, userdata.img, cache.img and zImage from Downloads#5 (Android images and sources) to that var directory
- Copy system.img and android.img.gz from Downloads#6 (patched images) to the that var directory
- That’s all the Android files on your iPhone, now to make them run!
Setting Up Virtual Box

- Select “Use existing hard disk”
- Select the ubuntu-9.10.vdi
- Click Next
- Click Finish
- Select that new machine to start up Ubuntu
- The password to login is: reverse
Setting Up Ubuntu
Almost there – if this feels a bit long, just consider how short and simple each step is!

Getting Android Working!
Well done on getting this far! This is where the fun beings (credits to WinX Blog for these instructions –link)
- In VirtualBox, the Ubuntu Window, go on Devices > USB Devices and select iPhone (Recovery Mode)
- In the terminal type (without quotes): ’sudo su’
- Enter the password: reverse
- In the terminal type ./loadibec openiboot.img3
- You’ll see the OpeniBoot screen appear on your iPhone
- Hold down the power button a couple of seconds (iPhone)
- The bottom option, openiboot console, will become selected
- Press Home (iPhone). You’ll see a bunch of text appear and stop at “Welcome to openiboot”
- In VirtualBox, the Ubuntu Window, go on Devices > USB Devices and select iPhone (OpeniBoot Mode)
- In terminal type su ./oibc
- Enter the password: reverse
- If this doesn’t work just type: ./oibc
- You’ll see the same text from the iPhone in the Terminal
- Type (without quotes) ‘nor_read 0×09000000 0×0 1048576′ and press Enter
- Wait for it to say Done
- Type (without quotes) ‘~norbackup.dump:1048576′
- This creates a backup of your NOR memory – save a copy on USB stick, or email it to yourself or something
- Type install, press Enter. When this is done you’ve got openiboot installed on your iPhone. You’re done!
What you’ve achieved up til now is Android files on your iPhone, and then installing openiboot so that you have an option to start iPhone OS or Android when you turn on your phone. Openiboot was necessary because that’s the only way right now that you can boot into Android. Here’s how to finish off and get into Android:
- If you still have Terminal open with the oibc still running, just type ‘reboot’, press Enter and skip to step 3
- If you don’t have Terminal open, disconnect your phone, turn it off and back on
- When openiboot appears press Power button to switch to openiboot console (bottom option)
- Hold down the Home button
- Android will start to boot, but it might take a while
And here is the video, with all the steps in visual detail.
Once you are done with all this, you should now have dual-boot configuration with Android 1.6 and iPhone OS on your iPhone with working calling, text messaging and WiFi. Camera wont work as of now, and there probably would be a few crashes here and there.

Im Sure you guys know bout Apple releasing a beta of iPhone OS 4 yesterday at the Apple Keynote. Unfortunately you have a Apple’s developer account to download it. Also you have to pay $99 to get one. So I’ve provided download links to the files for the guys who don’t a developers account, but you still have to get your UDID registered to use the new beta firmware(I can’t help you there ). below are download links for the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 2G, and iPod Touch 3G. Enjoy
To Upgrade using iTunes: Your iPod should show up in iTunes when plugged into your PC/Mac. Click on your iPod’s name. Press and hold SHIFT then click update, now find the OS 3 file. For the iPhone it should be “iPhonex_x_4.0_8A230M_Restore.ipsw”. For the iPod Touch 2G “iPodx_x_4.0_8A230M_Restore.ipsw”. Choose Open and now iTunes and your iPod/iPhone should be doing the work for you.
iPhone OS is the operating system running on the iPhone (both original and 3G models) and the iPod Touch. It is based on a variant of the same basic Mach kernel that is found in Mac OS X. iPhone OS includes the software component “Core Animation” from Mac OS X v10.5 which, together with the PowerVR MBX 3D hardware, is responsible for the interface’s smooth animations. The operating system takes up less than half a GB of the device’s total 8 GB or 16 GB storage. It is capable of supporting bundled and future applications from Apple, as well as from third-party developers. Software applications cannot be copied from Mac OS X but must be written and compiled specifically for the iPhone.

The Spirit Jailbreak released today works with Windows and Mac, but the Cydia software on it is buggy. I’ve tested it on iPhone, iPad WiFi, iPad 3G + WiFi, and iPod touchand it works perfectly! It jailbreaks in seconds. The Spirit jailbreak download has got to be one of the easiest and quickest jailbreak software since blackra1n.
If you’re using Windows, you may run in to an error with the Spirit Jailbreak software. See my Spirit failed to jailbreak (error code: c0000005) post. It’s important to note that many applications in Cydia may not work, and some may even give you the Black Screen of Death, requiring you to restore your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. The Spirit Jailbreak is fully untethered so you won’t need to jailbreak each time you reboot your device. It uses a userland exploit which Apple will be patching soon, so be sure to try it before it’s too late.
The Spirit Jailbreak software for iPhone 3.1.3, iPod touch 3.1.3, and iPad 3.1.3 was originally going to be released on Friday, but it had to be delayed by comex because of the iPad 3G. The Spirit jailbreak uses a userland exploit that Apple can easily patch so enjoy this jailbreak while you can. I’ll post up instructions on how to keep yourself safe from future updates in another post, for now if you get a firmware update from Apple don’t push that update button.
The Spirit Jailbreak for Windows can be downloaded here (install toolbar, works with Firefox/Internet Explorer/Safari). Just click on Downloads and click on the “Download Spirit for Windows” link. The latest download link for jailbreaks will always be added in that section.
The Spirit Jailbreak for Mac can be downloaded here (install toolbar works with Safari/Firefox/Internet Explorer). Just click on Downloads and click on the “Download Spirit for Mac” link. The latest download link for jailbreaks will always be added in that section.
