    Through a userland jailbreak, soon the owners of iPhone 4's, 3GS' and maybe iPod touches will be able to run Android on their boring stock devices!

    Fake Source

    hint: link is fake, just like the website who published the original article

    Whoever wrote that article has no idea what they're talking about. He clearly says in his tweet 'for older devices'. Correct me if i'm wrong but the iPhone 4 is the newest iPhone apple has released so anything post iPhone 3G still will not work and its all bullsh*t

    Spiritjb.org is one of the most unreliable sources you can site.

    I've removed the link, just because the amount of BS is insane. Seriously, the tweet said, "sure, why not

    "

    How is that 'proof?' I mean, come on. pod2g doesn't even work on the Android project.

    Basically, this article says nothing more than this: Android will hopefully be coming to newer devices now, since they will be pwned4ever (however that goes).

    Wow, this is something nobody new! /s

    hackers has successfully patched the iOS kernal to accept oversized NOR images to be able to install Andoid on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS through a userland iDroid installation.


    What about this?

    They are the words of the author of the article, not a dev. Which have come about by grossly misunderstanding every concept of the android project. The people that write on that site know as much, if not less, than we do on the subject. Whatever they say is either opinion or wrong, unless backed up by direct evidence from a dev.

    That's the only thing that isn't purely based on speculation, taking things out of context, and stupidity in that article.

    My advice is to get news from other places. There are plenty of very reliable and accurate Apple-related sites around the blogosphere.

    As for their knowledge of the Android situation, well, I think they proved how reliable and intelligent they are with the rest of their article.
