Forget about upgrading to iOS4 and come get some Froyo.

08 Jun

Just about everyday we hear about Android devices getting ports of Froyo ever since the file was leaked for everyone.  Even though we’ve known about the iPhone’s ability to run Android through Linux for a while now, we thought it’d be the last device to see Froyo in any form. It Still have some bugs in it to work out but it works.

Prerequisites:

  • OpeniBoot installed on your iPhone.
  • Download this archive and place it on the desk.
  • Phoneview or Cyberduck installed on your computer.
  • Packages afc2add or OpenSSH installed through Cydia.

Transferring files on the iPhone

  1. Open Phoneview or Cyberduck and position in the path / Private / var and transferred all the files in the archive you downloaded it;
  2. Now create a new folder in path / Private / var and name Firmware.
  3. Download this new archive and place the files inside the firmware folder.

Installation Openiboot:

  1. Download this file, unzip it and place it on your desktop.
  2. Put your device in recovery mode: turn off the device and connect to the computer while holding down the Home button until iTunes recognizes the device (alternatively you can use RecBoot, Much faster and easier to use).
  3. Launch Terminal and type the following commands in sequence:

    cd Desktop
    CD Installer
    sudo. / loadibec openiboot.img3
  4. Three symbols appear on the screen of the device: move to the second with the power button, and press the Home button on the top. Wait until it displays ‘Welcome to OpeniBoot‘.
  5. Move back to your Terminal and type this command: . / Oibc.
  6. Put the device in recovery mode but this time hold down Home and Power until you see the classic iTunes logo with the cable screen. Close iTunes on your Mac and move to the Terminal.
  7. From terminal, press Ctrl and C together.
  8. Re-enter by writing OpeniBoot sudo. / loadibec openiboot.img3. Without this, the three symbols appear again. This time, do not hit the Home button.
  9. On the terminal, while remaining in the Installer folder, type. / Oibc and do not press Enter.
  10. Navigate to OpeniBoot and click on Home, then on the terminal type the command . / Oibc. Wait till you see ‘Welcome to OpeniBoot‘, Type install Terminal and wait till your iPhone 3Greboots
