While we all sit back patiently waiting for Gingerbread (2.3) to come out for our Android devices we have had a lot of time to get used to Froyo (2.2) and I have to say I am very impressed with the software all around. Perhaps an unlikely scenario, yet a very real one is that The latest build of Froyo (2.2.1) is now available for download on your jailbroken iPhone 2 or 3G using Bootlace 2.1 from Cydia. That was not a typo, iPhone 2 and 3G users who are jailbroken can now hit up the links below for a step by step guide on how to install Froyo 2.2.1 on your devices. This is gigantic news if you’re into technology as much as we are and love seeing all the possibilities that are out there. The question is, will any of you iPhone users out there admit to trying this out? Drop us a comment and let us know how happy you are with Froyo on your iPhone.
Yes, that headline is no mistake! You can indeed install the latest version of Froyo, Android 2.2.1, on a jailbroken iPhone 2 or 3G, and you can do it all without a computer. Redmond Pie has put together a nice step-by-step guide to getting Android on your iPhone with Bootlace 2.1, but in short: it’s as simple as installing Bootlace 2.1 from Cydia, running it, and firing up iDroid. The rest is done for you, and frankly, it seems incredibly user friendly. Funny how the jailbreak community has made the process of installing Froyo on an iPhone easier than updating many Android phones.
