Linux on the iPhone?

Yep, that’s right, apparently the iPhone Dev Team have figured out how to boot a Linux kernel on the iPhone.  Now dont get your hopes up, this build is very far from compleation. It currently has no wireless networking, no sound, no writeable support for the NAND flash memory and of course, no touch screen drivers yet so no way to interact with the OS.

Still this is an incrediable achevement as the dev team has had to reverse-engineer the iPhone’s boot loader so they could write their own, the result? a workingLinux 2.6 kernel on the Apple’s iPhone platform. they curently have this running on the first and second gen iPhones, lets keep a close eye on what the fokes on the iPhone dev team have coming up for us =)
