Project Sandcastle Lets You Install Android On iPhone And You Can Try It Right Now

Project Sandcastle is now available to download and it lets you install Android on iPhone. Here are the details.

Corellium is already in Apple’s bad books. The iPhone maker is locked in a legal battle with the cybersecurity company because it claims Corellium is breaking the law by creating virtual iPhones. And now it’s really going to be upset, with the startup announcing a new way to run Android on an iPhone.

Project Sandcastle is the name of the new hack and it’s based on the popular checkra1n jailbreak. You can even take it for a spin yourself if you like, but be warned, it isn’t for everyone.

It is important to know that this hack isn’t going to work for everyone. Because it’s based on checkra1n it won’t work on Apple’s latest phones, although those using compatible phones should be good to go forever because of the way the jailbreak works. Apple simply can’t plug the security hole it uses.

Note: Android for the iPhone is in beta and has only had limited testing. Any impact on battery, performance, or other components is unknown. Please use caution in installing and using this version.

Currently, these builds are only supported for iPhone 7 and 7+. Please see below for a full list of supported features.

While APFS has experimental write support, it’s currently set read-only for your safety.

So, what’s next? Well it isn’t clear what Corellium’s end game is here, whatever it is we’re sure that Apple is going to have something to say about it. The same technology that Apple has an issue with – the one that allows for virtual iPhones – was used to make Project Sandcastle possible. And we all know how Apple views that.
