We all know Android 2.2 Froyo has been ported to many devices including HTC HD2, iPhone 3G etc. But, imagine iOS being ported to devices other than iPhone. Yes, you heard me right. Recently, some hackers managed to port iOS on an HTC device, HTC Magic. All the features of iOS works absolutely find including folders, quick app switching etc.
Everything seems to be original but it has been reported that the performance of the device is like iPhone 3Grunning iOS 4.0 and is really slow. But still this is an excellent developer in the process of reverse engineering.
According to iSpazio, the people who managed to clone iOS on HTC device said:
The operating system is perfectly identical to that of Apple, in every particular. The language set should be Chinese and is so well reproduced that seems to be a sort of port, as with Android Frøya iPhone. Technically, however, think they can not be true then porting the hypothesis of “cloning” IOS 4 remains the most plausible. Despite the enormous slow, everything works the right way.
Anyways, here is the video showing HTC Magic running iOS 4:
