You may recall a video last month that showed an iPhone 2G running Android. If not, let me refresh your memory.

Needless to say, all of us here at McCrunchables thought it was pretty freakin awesome. Well, you know what’s awesomer? Android running on an iPhone 3G!

That’s right, the buy-that-man-a-beer hacker responsible for the 2G Android port, David Wang, has managed to get Android running on the iPhone 3G.

The 3G version isn’t as complete as the 2G version was when it was shown to the world, but it’s nearly there. Right now it’s missing audio support, but it should only be a few days away.

In the mean time, you can browse the web, send/receive text messages, and use any apps that don’t require audio. Well, just as soon as it’s made available, that is.

David himself has said that the necessary instructions and binaries will be available “in a few days”, so keep your eyes on his blog for the announcement.

If you’re interested (and you should be, coz this it’s awesome) David has written an article for PC World about the current status of the project.

But enough from me, check out the video embedded below!
