To kick things off, Bootlace 2.1 is only compatible with the following iPhones and iOS’:
- iPhone 2G running iOS 3.1.2 and 3.1.3.
- iPhone 3G running iOS 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 and 4.1.
iPhone 2G users can similarly follow the steps to jailbreak using Redsn0w here, Blackra1n here and PwnageTool here.
If you don’t meet the above requirements then you can’t go ahead with the installation of Android on your iPhone 2G/3G. If you do, then proceed with the following steps.
Step 1: Jailbreak your iPhone 2G/3G using the steps given in the links above. When you’re done, run Cydia from your iPhone’s springboard, and add “http://repo.neonkoala.co.uk/” (without quotes) as repository. Tap “Add Source”, and then you need to install “Bootlace” as shown in the screenshots below.
Step 3: From “Bootlace”, you need to install “OpeniBoot”.
Please refer to Step 4 again if you want to check for Android updates in future. And it’s highly recommended that you perform the whole feat over a WiFi connection. [via The Readers Eye]
