    Hello all, just wanted to give a heads up that planetbeing is done hibernating and has resumed development of iPhone Linux (mostly openiboot right now). His work can be seen at:
    http://github.com/planetbeing/iphonelinux/
    I don't know if this constitutes bringing back the archived forum or not, but the prospect of iPhone Linux is certainly exciting (to me). Even though the development site (with the road map, etc.) is down, the repository has become active and I hope for some breakthroughs!

    For more chat, join IRC: irc.osx86.hu / #iphonelinux


    P.S. Accelerometer support (recent commit to github) on iPhoneLinux?: http://github.com/planetbeing/iphonelinux/commit/25f1000910c66f1dae91558d08a393b68c9ba1fd

    I'm glad somebody took the initiative to get this started.

    Awesome. Might make me enjoy having an iPhone again if this gets completed.

    They need more developers, currently only planetbeing is "active."
