Programming designer Winocm has figured out how to port the core elements of Apple’s iOS operating system to non-Apple devices. The code name of the core is the “XNU Kernel” and this is the thing that Apple improved over a decade prior to make the establishment of Os X (and later, ios). As might be seen in the picture above from Steven Troughton-Smith, the system is effectively running on a Nokia N900 smartphone.
The port does not has any of iOS’s or OS X’s graphical interface elements and cannot run as a functional OS. Here is some additional hardware that can run the system:
- ARM RealView Emulation Baseboard (ARMPBA8_ALT)
- ARM RealView Platform Baseboard for Cortex-A8 (ARMPBA8)
- Texas Instruments OMAP3530 (BeagleBoard/BeagleBoard xM) (OMAP3530)
- Texas Instruments OMAP3430 (Nokia N900) (OMAP3430_RX51)
- Texas Instruments AM335x (BeagleBone/BeagleBone Black) (OMAP335X)
