    there is only one os, Yes in the past there was a linux kernel that was uploaded but it had few commands.

    open iboot command ( oibc ) is only a little terminal and not a full linux command line.

    Can you please stop making useless threads? If you would read the sticky, you would see that the android compatibility is listed.

    This is actually a useful thread because people are always asking if you can boot openmoko or some other mobile operating system. People can check here first before they make a useless thread.

    EDIT:
    This is actually a thread for compatible operating systems with the iPhone not iDevice's compatibility with Android.


    EDIT#2: Made links

    EDIT#3:
    The Linux Temrinal comes with OpeniBoot

    Because it seemed a lot of people wanted Android on there iPhones. Plus you can't say having Android on the iPhone wasn't a good start towards having many other Open-Source OS's on the Phone

    open iboot console is NOT linux terminal. Its a self made console purley for debugging and installing reasons. You cant do any linux command on it what so ever
