    Hi. Just recently I have been reading up on an open source program called loadlin (for windows). What this program does is basically allows someone to load linux on a computer running windows without having to reboot (You can read more about it [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loadlin"]here[/ame].) I was wondering if it would be possible at all to port this to the iPhone (or make a program like it from scratch to do the same job.) Obviously linux wouldn't have drivers for the iPhone by default but once you have a way to load your own operating system onto the iPhone you can start coding drivers or even a dedicated linux for the iPhone/iPod touch. I would do it myself but I can't program for toffee.

    Thanks,

    There was the iPhone Linux project but that seems to have been abandoned and wasn't finished.

    Aparently someone made windows mobile run on the iPhone
    however he hasn't released his program. :-/ It would certanly be possible to run android on the iphone with a bit of hacking around if someone ported Loadlin to the iPhone.
