Is it possible to install android on the iPad now that it has been jail broken?
Best thing you can do is download dream board, there's a few android themes.
Fasten your seat belt, I hear an army of "Apple worshipers" with fully loaded rocket launchers headed your way
Well OpeniBoot works on some devices but I don't think the iPad is supported quite yet...
Here's the link:
From what I could grasp, it doesn't look very easy or straighforward by any means. It could even mess up your device.
Try at your own risk I guess.
Bummer.. would have been neat to play with android on Apple hardware.
My understanding is that the few projects that were started were plagued by optimization issues.
For instance, Apple does a really nice job of conserving power, letting your iPad run for hours on end . They obviously do not release the source code for these drivers, so when they put linux on an older iPhone, man, that thing got hot as heck and basically went from full battery to empty in an hour, despite having the display turned off.
You can probably understand why there hasn't been any real serious effort... best case scenario maybe you could get 70% battery optimization but it will never be nearly as good.
For a while I ran Cyanogen Mod 7 on my Samsung Galaxy S - despite being half open source Samsung's phone also suffered from some proprietary drivers that were hacked together by Cyanogen and I only had about 2/3 battery. And that required a lot of effort. Kinda sucks.
No drivers = no optimization.
