Linux on the iPhone

That’s news some really smart guy from the iPhone Devteam managed to get Linux running on the iPhone.

What works so far:
– Framebuffer driver
– Serial driver
– Serial over USB driver
– Interrupts, MMU, clock, etc.

What does not work (yet!):
– Write support for the NAND
– Wireless networking
– Touchscreen
– Sound
– Accelerometer
– Baseband support
