iPhone 3G, hacked to run Android 2.2, is now unlocked as wellAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Remember when the iPhone 3G managed to get itself a port of Android 2.2 before most Android devices were able to? Now the Froyo-toting iPhone 3G has one-upped itself, as Sergio McFly has unlocked the device for use on other GSM networks. In order to achieve the unlock, ultrasn0w was ported into the OpeniBoot process by hacker bluerise. Now not only can you use an iPhone on T-Mobile, you can use an iPhone running Android on T-Mobile, which is sure to cause some sort of rip in the space-time continuum. The unlock isn't available as of this writing, but Mr. McFly says that he's "in a rush" to make the unlock available, so we'll be sure to let you know when the download link is live.
After Android was ported to the HTC HD2 earlier today and now this, it's obvious that the Android hacking community can achieve just about anything it wants given some time. I'm surprised, and kind of disappointed, that we haven't seen an Android port come to the iPhone 3GS. Since the 3GS is reportedly more difficult to hack than previous iPhones, though, I'm sure we'll see it happen at some point. Have any of you tried out these Android-to-iPhone ports?
