Darwin is the core operating system that lies under both Mac OS X and iPhone OS. It is the true core foundation that bridges the kernel to the actual UI above. (SpringBoard/loginwindow/etc).

With the help of @plus_chan and his Nokia N900, I present to you, Darwin/ARM running on a Nokia N900.

I doubt this has any usefulness whatsoever, but that doesn't make it any less awesome. Great work (via Steven Troughton-Smith).

yeah with the shoddy USB port that breaks off on many units. I do still have that one sitting in a jar somewhere still.


The USB-port is easy to solder back on, though. On my N900 it's still sitting firmly, but then again, I have only used it for charging the phone anyways. Did you know that you can actually solder a 2nd USB-port on the phone, too, under the battery?
