    Just wondering, I think it would be kinda cool to be running a different OS.

    I think it's technically possible, but it need lot of work to be more usable then iPhone OS is. Theres lot of problems to be solved first

    -How to install such OS
    -How to boot it (Current Bootloader might not handle other system)
    -Drivers (well this one is easier but need a lot of work and experimenting)
    -Etc etc etc

    Linux supports ARM architecture so it's not a problem

    With current possibilities of iPhone OS theres no need for new system.... but there might be pop-up an reason to do that... it's called Android :>

    Yeah, your right about the drivers and stuff, but I just think it would be cool to get a custom OS to match what people want
