A group of hackers managed to successfully install and run the latest version of the Android operating system, version 2.3 labelled “Gingerbread”, on an old iPhone 3G. This is not the first time the 2008 iPhone gets Android and Linux ports, as the OpeniBoot software tool allows hackers and developers to inject any other OS into the device’s memory and execute it.

As you can see in the video below, it all looks pretty slow and definitely not ready for a public release — we’re not even sure actual functionalities such as Bluetooth or WiFi are working on that. Still, if you have the required patience to install it, wait for it to boot and use it with laggy multitouch gestures, you can show your non-geek friends that you have an iPhone that runs Google’s Android.
