To sum up what happened: I had copied all the data to my iphone using ssh, but could NOT get openiboot to work at all! Then it hit me: Why not use DFU instead of Recovery, uhhhh major fail! But all hope is not lost, as iHsn0w created one piece of awsome software! Google around for the download of iH8sn0w's iReb, it will make things soooooo much easier if you are on 3.1.3 trying to finish the installation of Android! DO THIS: ->>>>> (1) Place the iphone in DFU (2) Hook the iphone upto a Windoze computer and run iReb and select iphone 2G. //if your trying for another device then select that device, for ipod touch 3G click 'ipod touch 2G' to get the white screen Please Register or Log in to view images But your on your own there// (3) Wait for the iphone to get a white screen! (4) Now unplug the iphone from the Windoze machine (5) Plug it into your Linux box which you are installing from (6) Run the openiboot installation as normal from your Linux box EDIT4: Be careful not to choose install on openiboot unless you know how to restore a 'bricked' idevice. Also, if anyone would, try following these steps on a iphone running 3.1.2 and post back what happens Please Register or Log in to view images Now enjoy running android on your iphone, and reply back if this fixed your issues Please Register or Log in to view images ------------------double post merged------------------OKAY! thats not good! for the sake of not having to do a restore, do NOT choose to 'install' openiboot; heedth my warning: "There is a bug somewhere that prevents the iphone from doin a boot once openiboot is installed, the end result is a restore, and a clean setup! Edit2: I managed to get openiboot to come up on a ipod touch 3rd gen(uhhh oops, i mean 2nd gen, typing to fast), boot Android never booted... well not until a hard reset and using iReb again, but no getting past where it says "ANDROID" while booting, just seems to stop there... Edit3: Just to cover myself: If you do any of what i have listed here, understand that you are doing so at your own risk, I will NOT be responsible for any damage, corruption, or bricking of anybodys' device. Understand this before you attempt to do anything with my tips! Cheers!
