AFTER AN HP TOUCHPAD running Android appeared in Ebay last week, it was only a matter of time before Apple's devices that run IOS were hacked.
According to Macworld, Droid Project members Patrick Wildt and Ricky Taylor have hacked Apple's mobile devices to run Linux, meaning the OS will run on an Ipad, Iphone or fourth generation Ipod Touch.
There isn't much detail as to how the hack was done, but it's apparently a very exciting step for developers because it is difficult to root devices built around Apple's A4 chip.
Right now, the Droid members are working on getting Linux to work on the Ipad 2, which is apparently proving difficult.
Last week, we reported that an HP Touchpad running Android had tipped up on Ebay after it was mistakenly sent to a buyer.
The buyer claimed that his cut price Best Buy US Touchpad turned up running Google's Android 2.2 operating system. Bids reached more than ten times the cut down asking price for HP's tablet. µ
