How to Run ANDROID Apps on IPhone & IPAD 2 Ways [ Pics & Video Guide]

For ages we had been porting one smartphone OS to another, and for good reasons you can already install Android on iPhone
1st way- Run ANDROID Apps on IPhone 3G-3Gs-4G & IPAD.
However, the new trend is to actually run Android apps on different platforms and Blackberry was the first one to Run Android apps on Playbook Blackberry tablet using Alien Dalvik. And the good news for the iPhone lovers is just around the corner, actual android apps can now be run on iPhone using In-the-box VM. However, its not as straight forward.
In order to run Android apps on iPhone, you would need a good understanding of both operating systems and nuances required to port applications from Android to Apple’s OS.
While the porting process may not be as smooth or as easy as one might hope it to be, the idea is indeed a good start. Anything that gives developers more time to code great apps instead of spending time writing the same one twice is a good thing.
In the box is a dalvik vm ported to iOS that can run any android app, for now just the basic apps. All you have to do is write your android code, convert it into dalvik executable (Dex) and then package and deploy to In-the-box on iPhone. Build the binary application, sign it and submit it to App Store.
You can watch it in action below and get started with a hello world app written in java (Android) and run on iPhone.

2nd way-How To: Install Android On iPhone 3G Using iPhoDroid


Yesterday we have reported the release of iPhoDroid 1Shot R13, The application for Windows that allows you to install Android on your iPhone 3G. However the many bugs , did not allow multiple users to complete the installation. The developer then has released two more updates, coming up to version iPhoDroid R13k represents a major upgrade since it includes many fixes.

Here is the step by step how to install Android on iPhone 3G using iPhoDroid R13H fro windows:
Step 1:
Download iPhoDroid R13k for windows.
Step 2:
When launching the application on Windows 7 you may have a strange error says "Apha Expired! New Release available"
you can simply solve it by clicking of the clock at the bottom right and change the current date. Just go back only a month. Try to open the application again and you should not have any problems.
Note: when I tried to run iPhoDroid 1Shot R13h on my Windows 7, I got an error message says "Your computer is blocked to run this application",  if you see this error, you simply have to right click on the iPhoDroid  icon, then choose "run as administrator".
Step 3: When you open the iPhoDroid, you will see a screen like this.
Step 4: Connect your iPhone via USB to your computer and click on "Shoot" .
Step 5: After a few seconds it will detect the iPhone then it will start the process of extracting the necessary drivers and files for the Android touchscreen, this procedure takes a few minutes but it is completely automatic, you have only to watch it.

Step 6:The iPhone will reboot automatically and will enter into Recovery Mode.
Step 7: Start again iPhoDroid.exe and click "Exit Recovery Mode" to start the iPhone.
Step 8: The process is completed and now you finally have your Android on iPhone 3G.
Note:2nd Ways guide is only for the iPhone 3G.

    wowww supperb but i have a question how did you get Mac OS X on your Dell

  2. Cool~! This is damn cool! Now apps developed for Android can also be run on iOS. Means developing for Android has become more profitable as you can sell your app on the android market and advertise it through iOS as well =D

  3. If you wanna scroll up and down, get infiniboard. You can set so that it can page up and down or you can have it

  4. will this work on a itouch 1st gen running 3.1.3 jailbroken with redsn0w? PLZ respond soon

  6. HAS ANYONE TRIED IS IT WORKING??? AND Can you run locked phones via Android even on a ios 4.3.3 firmware?

  7. I AM An Apple developer ya this above Guide Works absolutely Fine but...
    Just a small word of warning - I would not get this if you're using an iPod Touch 2G or below, or an iPhone 3G or below. Only use if you have an iPod Touch 3G (16GB or above) or 4G or iPhone 3GS or 4. If you have a lot of apps, then it it likely to crash SpringBoard when you look at all of your apps and start scrolling through them. This is a brillient app/tweak/ - whatever you want to call it, but it takes up too much RAM to be used everyday on anthing below an iPod Touch 3G or iPhone 3G.

  8. Thanks for the warning! i totally agree, and it can even sometimes slow down my 32gb iPod Touch 3G, and thats why i dont use it all the time.

  9. yeah I will. Still in the beta stages though and only one theme is available from what I saw. It is pretty sweet, but uses up a lot of RAM
