    An easy-peasy guide on how to install android with bootlace

    Requirements
    Device
    compatible devices
    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 2G
    iPod Touch 1G

    IOS Software
    Bootlace is currently compatible with
    3.1.2 to 4.1

    Jailbreak
    the really Obvious bit, you need to have a jailbroken device so that you can have cydia to install Bootlace
    OpeniBoot requires a compatible jailbreak; one that allows for unsigned NOR images to be run. Currently these include redsn0w, PwnageTool or Blackra1n.

    OpeniBoot will NOT work with the Spirit or Jailbreakme.com jailbreaks.

    Installing Openiboot
    Bootlace 2.0.3 does not install openiBoot at the moment. OpeniBoot can be installed using Linux, OS X or on Windows by running Linux in a virtual machine (vmware or virtualbox although runing linux natively is advisable

    Linux Preparation
    These steps are designed for Linux users.
    Type these commands into the terminal window (don't forget to enter your password when asked):
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Please note that the apt-get or aptitude command is only for Debian or Ubuntu distros. Use the appropriate command for your Linux distro, for example emerge or portage for Gentoo, yum for Fedora, and yast for Slackware distros.

    OS X Preparation
    These steps are designed for users of OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
    Download and install the following package to your computer. These are required for loadibec and oibc to run.
    Install usbreadline.mpkg.zip first then install libusb-mac.gz. Always make sure that libusb-mac.gz is the last to be installed. If you installed libusb-mac.gz first, install usbreadline.mpkg.zip then reinstall libusb-mac.gz.

    ""To be clear install usbreadline.mpkg first THEN install libusb-mac.gz""

    Download and Installation
    Download the corresponding OpeniBoot 0.1.2 package to your computer depending on your iDevice:
    2G is for iPhone 2G (not iPod Touch 2G), while 3G is for iPhone 3G (not iPod Touch 3G).

    extract the file (openiboot.img3) to a place such as your desktop
    Depending on your Operating System, download the tools to install OpeniBoot from here:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Extract/unzip the archive. You should end up with a folder named for your type of OS; i.e. Linux-x86 for 32-bit Linux, Linux-x86_64 for 64-bit Linux, and OSX for Mac OS X 10.6. Please note that the OS X tools were built using 10.6 Snow Leopard so they may or may not work on 10.5 Leopard.
    Copy/Move the files from the folder extracted (corresponding to your OS) to the same convenient location where openiboot.img was extracted to (ex. Desktop).

    The convenient location must contain: loadibec, oibc, openiboot.img, and linux (only if you are using 64-bit Linux).

    Turn off your device and place it in restore mode:

    When the device is turned off, hold down the home button, then connect the USB cable (make sure that is connected to the PC), keep holding the home button until a screen with the iTunes logo and and a cable pointing towards it. For OS X and Windows users (using virtual machines), don't forget to kill iTunesHelper or else iTunes will automatically open upon detecting an iDevice in Restore Mode.

    open terminal from Applications->Accessories->Terminal
    now type sudo then a space then drag the loadibec to the terminal window, next drag the openiboot.img3. also to the terminal window
    you should end up with a window like this
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The device's screen should flash for a brief second and the OpeniBoot menu will load.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Using the volume buttons (or power button if you are on iPod Touch 1G), navigate to the console selection (the cog icon) but don't press the home button yet.
    in the terminal window type sudo then a space and drag the oibc into the terminal window.

    NOW press the home button and wait 1-2 sec and immediately press enter on the pc
    You will know if the computer has failed to connect to the device if you receive only this output:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    if everything went well, you should end up with this.

    It's a completely different mobile operating system, I would compare this to dual booting windows and linux
