Is this possible?
Question is why? And no, its not unless someone is able to port an iOS Rom to the evo, then nand backup and restore. But I see no point in doing that.
Just to run appstore apps without buying a new device. Well, thanks for answering!
No, probably not possible due to the fact we don't have drivers and whatnot for the hardware on the EVO. Also I don't think apple has even written a driver for a cdma radio yet.
You want a Hyper-Visor on top of Android, is that correct?
I think I thought I heard a litle company called Trust Digital (now McAfee) might have something like this up their sleeve. I don't believe it is 100% accurate, but I heard it from a reliable source (someone who's going to buy it).
Also, I noticed Apple iPhone xCode includes the iPhone Simulator. Mac OS is Linux and so is Android. In theory, one could port xCode dev and this simulator to Android. In theory... (and with the help of a few thousand cans of Red Bull).
ps. I SO want a handheld Hyper-visor too, whether it's HTC EVO hardware or running Android or not. I don't feel complete until I have this myself.
Mac OS X is not Linux, it's BSD Unix.
The Gods would cry if this happened.
But it would be the ultimate kick in the balls to Apple.
I thought android running on their hardware was a pretty good kick already, wouldn't you say?
No because you still had to buy their device...
if they can dual boot android on ios devices why not the other way around? if one is compatible with the other it should be the same vice a versa! i think what it really is, is that people with iphones are jealous of android and put in time to get it done. and people with android think their s/w is better and have not even bothered to try.
The iphone is now on verizon, so theres the cdma for you..
Who knows, maybe someday someone will create a rom.
I had a 3gs for over a year, and im much happier with the android.
I can see what youre saying with the apps, but most apps have something comparable for the android.
I can also see an iOS rom being kinda buggy and having problems compared to the actualy iOS on an iPhone. iPhones are way too smooth and (for me and everyone ive known) very problem free, so i think youd find it to be a disappointment.
Pick up a new iPod touch, for 199. Its got the retina display etc. I got one for a friend and she loves it a lot
Mainly because Android is open source and ios isn't.
It's not a matter of compatibility. Tell me... Where can you get the source code to iOS?
Torrents? haha jk
I'm switching to an iphone...
Im going to need a second phone soon, so i might get one on verizon, and have ios and android. best of both worlds lol
Lol I'm not actually. Gonna try and get the asus transformer today....wish me luck
Now that we have a CDMA iPhone, do we have the proper drivers to write the ROM?
Personally, I would like the iOS operating system ported over to my Evo for lots of reasons.
-I want some of the iOS apps
-I don't want to buy an iPhone/iPod Touch
-I'm on Sprint with no iPhone option and I don't want that ZTE Peel thing
-I like to show off to my iPhone friends who think they're the shit
-I love to try new things
iPhone owners can port Android over to their phone, how about us for a change? I understand that there are licenses and drivers and all this but is there anyone out there even trying to do it? Can we let go of our hatred for Apple for a few moments to make something awesome to show up Apple?
man u just blew my f-n mind
that is hard to do when your house mate is such a apple fan boy.
No. The main problem here is that iOS is completely closed. If you want to write a kernel that iOS can use to interface with your Android phone, you need to know how iOS is written.
Last I checked, Apple didn't offer iOS code as open source. So... you're more likely able to put Android on an iDevice (it's been done already) than the other way around.
I do not personally own an EVO, but I believe it has a different (larger) resolution than the iPhone does. Therefore wouldn't all iPhone apps (which are all written for the iPhone resolution) work (or perhaps just look) like crap on the larger display of the EVO?
meh, still don't see the point...
lol it would show him up.
Okay, well that makes more sense. I just thought it was people who refused to do it.
