You can install Windows XP on iPhone or iPad utilizing the BOCHS tool available from Gerard’s own Cydia repository and iFunbox on the PC.
While the opportunity to try out this OS on the iPhone or iPad is indeed an exciting prospect and the end result is hardly one that can be called productive. Thanks to Gerard for his effort, and obviously he must be facing some limitations as far as the hack is concerned, hence the sluggish UI and performance. BOCHS is a 32-bit emulator for iOS and given that Windows XP is being emulated in real-time, the results are actually not surprising at all.
This opportunity is exclusive to users with jailbroken iPhones or iPads. And jailbreaking is currently limited till iOS 8.1.2, so if your device runs anything higher, you will have to cross your fingers and hope for a quick-fire solution from TaiG or others jailbroken team.
