    I've got a few questions:
    1. - Now that the Linux Kernel is ported to the iPhone, is there going to be a full GUI of a Linux distro?
    2. - Or is it just the kernel and OpeniBoot that let you run other OS's?
    3. - How long do you think it will take to have an GUI with the Linux kernel. With other words: when will you be able to "use" it?
    4. - Or when will we be able to run Android on the iPhone?
    5. - Which steps have to be made to make that (run Androind on iPhone)possible? Are those steps hard?

    Thank you.

    A GUI istn´t the big problem.
    The problem is that there´re no drivers neither for the touchscreen nor for WiFi nor for Sound

    I have installed it. Just for something to do.

    I found a mirror of the files on google just search for iphonelinux-demo.tar.gz and it is on one of the last results on the first page.
