XNU (Darwin) for ARM now available

Tue Aug 13, 2013 6:33 pm

A developer that goes by the name of winocm has published his port of XNU for the arm architecture on his github page (https://github.com/winocm/xnu). This port supports the ARMv6 and v7 architecture, and provides basic support for the Beagle and ARMPBA8 boards. He has also provided a minimal skeleton for RaspberryPi board support (/pexpert/arm/pe_raspberrypi.c). Currently this project can still be considered to be in it's alpha stage, as there are still several bugs to be fixed and functions to be implemented - but the kernel does apparently boot.

I can't wait to see what comes out of this! :D

I think what comes out of this would be a iOS 4 port at most, technologically, if stock iOS 4 libraries and binaries for original iPhone or iPhone 3G can work on Raspberry Pi.

Legally, this would be a dead end.
