Device running the OpeniBoot console.

iDroid is a project which goals are to port linux and Android to the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad and make a Free (free software) OS alternative to the Apple proprietary "Template:Wp".

iDroid is not actually a hack/exploit neither an unlock, but it is based on Bootrom exploits which allowing the running of unsigned code at low level.


The goals of OpeniBoot are

  • to run low-level code,
  • to have low and critical drivers (NAND and NOR driver, NVRAM...), and
  • to have a debugger and development environment (chainloading, upgrading itself and USB mass storage).


A linux Bootloader, a working linux kernel (just a question of cross-compiler), porting drivers, run wifi and command line through SSH.


On April 21, 2010, an Android distribution based on iPhoneLinux called iDroid was released.
