Corellium security company managed to make operating system installation a reality Android in devices iPhone. After years of hard work, a team of developers managed to create the first beta release of “Project Sandcastle", Which allows users to run Android on Appliances iPhone 7, 7 Plus and iPod Touch via Chekra1n jailbreak.
And while this is a great achievement, iPhone users need to keep in mind some things.
First, the full Android experience cannot yet be achieved, as this is a first trial. Features like camera, audio output, technology BluetoothThe GPU, cellular modem do not work with Project Sandcastle, and there are several other issues that could arise along the way.
In addition, the storage system is read-only for the moment and you cannot install applications Google Play Store on the iPhone.
Despite the problems, and the fact that the developers they customized the build with Open Launcher which is not exactly Android, no doubt it is a great achievement.
It's not the first time the team has been able to run Android on an iPhone device. David Wang, one of the founders of Corellium, installed Android on the first generation of iPhone ten years ago.
Η Apple, on the other hand, is not too excited that anyone could run Android on iPhones.
In order to implement Project Sandcastle, developers used their own virtualization platform for the iPhone, for which Apple sued Corellium last year, as alleged software development for the iPhone is a copyright infringement.
Meanwhile, Corellium supports its belief that the users Apple should be able to do whatever they want with their devices.
“Apple's dominance allows it to decide everything from what apps are allowed on the market to the commission it receives from developers. Corellium's solution to running Android on iPhone will provide customers with a viable alternative to App Store Apple and the iOS. "Corellium CEO Amanda Gorton told Forbes.
