Hacking Android into an iPhone; sort of

It is more of a bootloader, in that a custom 3D printed iPhone case hides a device based around  LG Nexus 5 which plugs into the iPhone and allows you to launch Marshmallow 6.0.1 on your iPhone.  Once you unplug the lighting cable connection between the iPhone and the case your phone reverts to iOS, thus avoiding having to flash the protected innards of the phone.  The interface is described as somewhat laggy but it has a functional USB port, HDMI out and room for a microSD card.  This is the same fellow who managed to get Win95 running on an Apple Watch so we may read more about his rule breaking modifications at The Inquirer.

That's just the iPhone acting like a dedicated display, what he needs to do is create a hackintosh that can link up OSX to an iPad pro and make it a real professional Tablet. Maybe use an AMD Bristol Ridge APU SKU when that becomes available.

But reallistically it would be much better to try to hack an OSX install onto the iPad Pro's ARMv8A based A9X CPU, that or a maybe That Debian based on the freeBSD kernel build that is out there and getting some apps to run on that.
