    Hello all,

    I was just wondering if it was possible to install, say Android OS on a jailbroken iPhone. On a similar vein, is it possible to run iPhone OS on a hacked Motorola Droid?

    Not that I am looking to do it, but was just curious to know..Haven't jailbreakers thought of this already?

    Interesting

    Interesting idea and it has been done. Just a couple catches the wifi, 3g, cell, and touch capabilities are lost but they are working on it.

    Has there been any progress on that project since that article's November 2008 date?

    You can emulate other OSes.


    I installed windows 95 and windows 3.11 through an emulator for kicks. Neither are really usable. They have tried windows xp through emulation, but it hasn't been successful.
