Ever wonder if Android users are having more fun? iDroid gives iPhone users the power to run a full Andorid OS on the iPhone hardware. Untill now the process of installing iDroid was tedious and very geeky. Now thanks to Nick Dawson’s BootLace it’s just a matter of a few taps here and there to get iDorid installed. Your device must be already jailbroken with Cydia. This setup works with 2G and 3G iPhones running iOS 3.1.2 to 4.1.
Steps to install iDroid with BootLace:
1. Add http://repo.neonkoala.co.uk as a new Source in Cydia
2. Install BootLace
3. Install OpeniBoot
4. Install iDroid
Now just reboot your iPhone and Voila! You’ll see a choice of operating systems too boot from: Andorid OS & iOS – in the QuickBoot tab.
Once you’re done having fun with Android, if you wish, you can remove BootLace from iDroid and your normal iPhone bootup process resumes.
Note: You can also install Andorid on your iPhone using another Cydia app called iPhodroid, although that process requires connecting to a computer and is more complicated.
Here is a video demo of the BootLace app installation on the iPhone
