    Hello,
    I'm an iPod Touch 3g user, and as I'm decepted with iOS 4, I saw that is possible to put the greatest OS for mobile devices that I ever saw(Android), but as an Android phone here in Brazil is too much expensive I don't want to buy it and also I'm waiting a Nokia N8 that is getting shipped. Anyway I just saw that is possible to put it on the 1g version of the iPod, then I want to know if there is any version for my one. Also, I want to know if there is any way to do a Restore after the OS is installed, in case of any problems at the installation, since I've already bricked a HTC Touch Pro 2 when I tried to update my ROM to a newer one(non-official).

    Best Regards,
    Nathan Paulino Campos

    No.

    Unfortunately, to install OpeniBoot, which is required to boot Android, you need to be using a bootrom-exploit based jailbreak.

    And they don't exist on your (or my

    Sorry, I'd love to be running Android too.

    How can you be disappointed with it?

    People have put countless hours in on something they don't even have to. Let alone release to the public. Just be patient. New progress is being made every day. Plus, it's not even the people porting Androids fault that the 3rd gen doesn't have a bootrom exploit. I'm pretty sure there is one though, it's just not released (correct me if I'm wrong).

    @dunuck I may be wrong, but isn't Android available on the 2nd gen? On iPhoDroids site it says for 2nd gen users to be excited for Sunday. Or is it just the port that isn't all that great? I really have no clue. I just saw that on iPhoDroid.

    its honestly not worth it for the common people yet, I have it installed on my phone. It's a nice toy but not worth it when the battery dies in an hour. Once there's power management set up, I'm gung ho(sp?) on it, all the way.

    I know how it is. I'm a developer too. But why there isn't any BootROM exploit for 3g and have it for 1g and 2g, as I think, the motherboard of the 2g is the same of the 3g.

    The motherboard may very well be the same (which I doubt), but the motherboard doesn't have anything to do with a bootrom exploit (I don't think, lol). I don't really know much, but I do know how a jailbreak works.
