PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The "In the box" project aims at porting the Dalvik VM and the Gingerbread API on top of iOS, so that Android applications may be easily turned into iOS ones. Unlike the Alien Dalvik project, it is community-driven, and the source released under version 2.0 of the Apache Software License. Recently, this project has published its first result: a "Hello World" Android application running on top of iOS.

I think they have changed their mind about this lately, in order to allow things like Unity3D or single-game emulators to exist. The thing they remain adamant about is interpretors which can be fed third-party code to extend their functionality.

Have they actually changed their rules, or are they just turning a blind eye?

If memory serves me, they officially banned any code compilers/interpretors other than their own because they wanted to explicitly stop cross platform development.

I remember them doing so, too, but I think they also have changed the terms later to something that allowed third-party frameworks.

Ah, if only Apple weren't Apple and freely disclosed their licensing terms so that everyone can check them instead of putting them under NDA...

No, they changed the rule after the protests.
