iPhone users and Android users can stop fighting. Your iPhone can run Android (as if Steve Jobs didn’t already have enough on his plate with the iPhone prototype leak).

Yeah, you heard me right. iPhone Dev-team member Planetbeing uploaded a video to YouTube Wednesday evening that shows him successfully running Android on an iPhone 2G.

In fact, the iPhone doesn’t just run Android – it also had dual-boot capabilities, by way of Linux 2.6 bootloader OpeniBoot, which is also a Planetbeing creation.

Planetbeing‘s video shows him starting out in the regular iPhone OS and then booting to Android-albeit, a somewhat sluggish, not fully functional version of Android, but Android nonetheless. By the looks of it, Android on the iPhone plays music, browses the Web, and makes phone calls with no problems.

Planetbeing admits that Android on the iPhone is still in “Alpha,” but notes that “pretty much everything works.
