If you are a fan of some of the features the Android OS has to offer and currently have a jailbroken iPhone then you will be very happy to know that Bootlace v2.1 will now allow you to install Android on your device without even hooking up to your computer.
According to Twitter user @cpich3g:
Bootlace 2.1 Released, Installs OpeniBoot from userland! – http://bit.ly/a8ELoV Congrats to @nidawson @bluerisEN @nickpack
If you are unaware of what OpeniBoot or even Bootlace are here is a quick explanation:
Bootlace is an iOS application which allows the installation of iDroid and OpeniBoot as well as configuration of OpeniBoot settings. Also supported is QuickBoot – a way of directly booting into the selected OS without modifying normal OpeniBoot settings.
Bootlace can be found at the following repo in Cydia:
This version currently supports the iPhone 2G running 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 firmware and the iPhone 3G running 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 or 4.1 firmwares. If you are currently using backgrounder for multitasking on your 3G or even 2G iPhones then be sure to disable backgrounder to utilize Bootlace as there are known issues between the two applications.
If you utilize this feature and install Android onto your device let us know how it is running and how the entire process went in the comments section below.
