I haven't even got to installing android yet. I haven't been able to install openiboot. I have followed so many tutorials and i complete each step and all of them just stop working half way through (ie the commands i am typing in the terminal just stop doing anything) I have tried doing this a few times over the last few months, and i have just upgraded my 3g to ios4 and is beginning to become unusable so i want to try android out on it. So is the installation of openiboot the same on ios4? I have openiboot.img3 on my desktop, also linux/loadibec/oibc. i have libusb and libreadline5 installed and when i type "sudo ./loadibec openiboot.img3" it gives me this open_device: unable to connect to device. your device must be in recovery mode. or send_file: invalid status. My device is definitely in recovery mode. i just installed ubunutu 10.x only to install openiboot. its a brand new installation, so is there anything else i need to do? thank you.
