iPhone 3G / Re: OpeniBoot CANT RESTORE!
« on: December 25, 2010, 01:03:35 PM »
This thread will probably help you,

Once on the console you can uninstall.

No, At that point you should connect with oibc. IIRC. Been a while thanks to the wonderful Bootlace.

iPhone 4 / Re: What can I do to get Idroid on Iphone 4 asap?
« on: December 22, 2010, 12:01:17 PM »
Can someone give me an estimate of how much of a donation the iDroid team would need to really get this project off the ground?

Maybe you could set a donation goal and a java donation counter to encourage consumers and supporters to chip in.

Until reading this thread i wasn't aware of what software/hardware you were lacking. It would be a good idea to set up newsletters and shout out emails.

for example(){

"hexrays ARM decompiler license needed. can anyone help?"

}

edit: ignore last post. Lost connection

@sjorge
thank you :-)
but one question left:
Are there some simulator for x86 or PPC architecture?
tia

Qemu may cross-compile but I didn't try. Performance would be horrible too.
I did read something about bochs but never played with it.

I may actually give that a whirl later tonight but I'm not expecting much from it performance wise.

Edit: Bochs sort of works, but only at iphone resolution. And it's pretty slow, to the point it's not usable.
It has been done, back in the iPhone OS 1.x days even, hehe. Performance was horrible though, and we were emulating Windows 98 :P. I suppose the iPad or iPhone 4 might be powerful enough to emulate Windows 98 or something.

I tried it on my iPad, wasn't very responsive. Not that I was expecting it too.
But could be awesome for some DOS games :D

... This is also why you'll never see Windows XP (native) run on an iDevice.

sorry, this one is a cloud app :-D
http://areacellphone.com/2010/04/ipad-hacks-install-windows-xp-minutes/

Notice the native, I can use firefox on my iPad, heck I can use Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Server over my Citrix XenApp server. It's not the same. You unplug the internet connection and it's gone. The OS/Application are running on a server, your ipad is just the input (touch screen + on screen keyboard) and output (display).

It's not the same as having windows run on the hardware in the iDevice.

Geeky note: I can run NX Client for Windows over Citrix XenApp and connect to a ubuntu desktop over NX and use ubuntu... as long as I'm on the wireless network at home, trust me it's not THAT great.

No and No,

Android doesn't support linux apps that you can run on a gentoo,ubuntu,fedora,...
And in theory cydia does support any .deb file, however it apps in side won't run.

-- technical mubo jumbo --
although you can copy lets say the firefox binaries and library from your ubuntu to your idroid/ios,...
they won't run. The architecture is different. Your firefox binaries will most likely be i368 (or variants there of like i686) or x86_64. The architecture of the iDevice is different, It's the ARM architecture.

It's more of a hardware issue than a OS one. This is also why you'll never see Windows XP (native) run on an iDevice.

FYI:

Running windows programs under wine (linux does run fine on ARM devices) that will be a no go also,
Unless you can recompile the application to use winelib.

iPhone 4 / Re: What can I do to get Idroid on Iphone 4 asap?
« on: December 14, 2010, 11:10:03 PM »
Lots of great post recently, I think it boils down to:
1. People hack for fun and the challenge
2. Writing drivers isn't easy, take time. But this is probably what makes it fun for some people.
3. Hosting all this cost money so donations are welcome, but even without people would hack... It would just take longer and have less of a community to bounce around ideas and get people interested.

And probably more stuff but I'm typing on my iPhone so I'll end here, may revisit at some point when I'm on a desktop or laptop.

Very good post by Zeta, hit the nail on it's head  ;D
It does, you just need 15 posts to access it, but I'll lower that to 9 for you :)

Off topic / Re: Overclocking Iphone 3g (BRAINSTORM GUYS)
« on: December 05, 2010, 12:07:39 PM »
even if it would work fstab is NOT the place do put those commands.
Your best bet would be to put the sysctl stuff in a launch daemon.

But if manually executing all the sysctl commands over ssh has no effect, making them run at boot won't either.
Not near my 3G to test atm though :(

General discussion / Re: Vote on button configuration
« on: December 04, 2010, 09:38:02 PM »
I retract my previous choice.

I would like this.

sleep = power off
single short press home = home
long press home = menu
double press home = back
vol up / vol down = vol up / down.
mute is an extra one (configurable).

This method would benefit everyone. (easy to use, works with all models including itouch etc...)

I also found that there is a button remapper app on android.
Would that work for idroid, or is it translating the presses on a more fundamental level?

I also retract mine! This sounds like a great idea! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Likewise! I love this!

Setting the router to bg-mixed does work, not what I want though :(
