You can certainly install any application you want on a jailbroken iphone, yes, but you can't install a kernel-mode driver because you simply can't... you don't even have access to the kernel in order to compile a driver for it...

I know what i'm talking about, I did some reverse engineering on the iphone and let me tell you that it's not an easy task to make it do what you want!

Also, try googling for "iphone linux" and see how much work and how many *years* it has taken groups of developers to be able to get some kind of semi functioning linux system on the iphone...

The iphone is a closed system and it's a piece of crap in my opinion, and I think the only reason it has sold more than 10 units is because the world is plagued by stupid Apple fanboys that will buy anything Apple throws their way...

haha, cool, I'll try it out tomorrow!

@veggav: no way, you can't, the iPhone is a crappy piece of hardware that is extremely closed because Apple loves to control everything in their products, so you can do nothing with it, you can't even install an application if it's not pre-approved by Apple!

With the N900, you are free to do whatever you want with it! Nokia gives you even instructions on how to flash it with your own custom firmware if you want to.. and now people have already been able to install different operating systems on the N900 : Android in a dual boot! Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Debian in chroot, and Mer (custom linux distribution specific for Maemo devices) and even Mac OS X 10.3!!

IPhone doesn't come close to being able to do anything like that...
