    I think the CPU on iPhone 3G is really capable to run Android 2.1

    . Also, if iDroid dev-team ports openiBoot to all devices including iPhone 3G(S) and iPod touch 2G/3G.. there'll be A LOT of people who can contribute to build the code.

    So what do you think? We will see iDroid 2.0 soon on our devices?

    Its not about that, its the fact that it needs a bootrom exploit to run and replace iboot with openiboot.

    Sure, 2.1 could run on the iphone 2G and 3G, very slowly and buggy and missing a bunch of the cool stuff like animated wallpapers and that fancy app drawer. Just like it runs on my MyTouch 3G which happens to have almost the exact same processor as those two iPhones and the same amount of memory. They could add a swap partition and possibly overclock it (Like I do with my MyTouch) But its not a perfect solution. Basically, yes, they COULD make 2.1 run, but not without problems and workarounds.

    The 3GS on the other hand would handle 2.1 okay. Android 2.1 and higher is really made for next generation hardware like snapdragon or close to it.

    That said 2.1 doesn't really bring anything that much more useful to android, it's really just a spit shine. All of the useful parts of 2.1 have been backported to 1.6. So you get all the speed and light weight of 2.1 without all the useless shiny stuff, that really adds nothing, just slows it down.

    Totally agreed !!

    In fact, 2.1 just adds the graphics... that's all. It still has the same kernel. We can add animated wallpapers in 1.6 also
