    From what I hear on this forum [http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=310517] the jailbreak for the iPT4g is going to be a bootrom exploit. Also, a bootrom exploit is necessary to put android on an idevice. My question is, will there be a strong possibility of someone successfully porting android to the iPT4g?

    The new jailbreak is for all devices, including the iPt4.

    So yes, you will be able to put android on it because it is a bootrom exploit, so theres no reason why nobody would be willing to port it over.

    If you want working android on a smartphone/mp3 player, then buy one with pre-installed Android. It would be somehow stupid to buy an ipod touch 4g just to habe Android on it... For the older devices there is a reason to port Android over: Android wasn't available when they were released. But if you really want Android on an iPod touch 4g, just for the lulz, then go and start porting it

    . It is always nice to do something just for the fun of doing it, but in my opinion it is easier to buy an Android device...

    Can you stop feeding the people the wrong information?

    It would be nice to have iOS and Android without having 2 devices.

    The fact that it is a bootrom exploit, and there hasnt previously been one for the 3g means it will most likely happen
