    I was wondering....could you "wipe" an iOS from an iPhone and install an alternative O.S. such as Android? It's been established iOS has a "separate bootloader and therefore, wouldn't allow boot of another O.S.? IF (?) one could eliminate (wipe/delete/erase) that bootload, would an Android or Linux...etc. perform properly on an iPhone? OR, maybe it's better said...would an O.S. other than iOS work from the "mechanics" of an iPhone?

    P.S. To ADMIN; Thanks for "reminding" me I was subscribed to this site!!

    I know people have done that with Android and added a second OS, but I have never heard of anyone doing anything like that with an iPhone.

    I don't think that it is possible but looking all over the internet maybe you can try using Ubuntu.
