In today's video, we tackle an interesting topic which seems almost impossible at a first sight: can you possibly run real android on a current or slightly older iPhone like the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 6S, iPhone 7 and so on? It used to be possible back on the iPhone 2G and the first iPod Touch, through a project called iDroid and OpeniBoot, but that was almost 10 years ago. We are about to experience another revolution in the iPhone modifying community with the release of the CheckM8 BootROM exploit by developer @axi0mX a week ago. This combined with a ton of work, would enable once again Android to run on iOS devices.

So yes, it is definitely possible now that we can control what runs on our devices we paid for, thanks to @axi0mX's very generous release, but that doesn't mean it is an easy task whatsoever. Android has a ton of drivers that need to be re-built or completely ditched. You see, Apple doesn't always use standard components for their devices, and this is especially true for their ICs. The A** chip, for example, the A10 in the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7, is a proprietary Apple chip that simply doesn't exist on Android. So Power Management, Memory handling, NVRAM, States, NOR, NAND, etc have to be tackled from scratch at low level if we were to create a new bootloader to be able to load Android. 

It takes more than a tweak developer to port #Android on #iOS devices. This is very low-level programming and requires a solid understanding of Apple's hardware and possibly a ton of research, but it IS possible. Until the release of #CheckM8 the answer would have been a resounding NO because even with all the research in the world and all the drivers ready, there would have been no way to load those files on the device. Today, thanks to @axi0mX's historical release that made headlines on all major news outlets, it's once again possible!

Finally we can do whatever we want with our iPhone without restrictions.
