Running patcher executable on iPhone?

As I understand it, the iPhone OS is basically compact
version of the OSX. If that is so, would one be able to
run standalone versions of patchers on the iPhone?
I would love to turn my iPhone in to a portable sequencer
for capturing ideas. Any thoughts?

The current implementation(s) of Max run on Intel and PPC processors.
The iPhone uses an ARM processor. So without us creating a port of
Max to the iPhone (which we aren’t currently doing), you will not be
able to run your standalone on the device.

This reminds me Pure Data we used to install on very old iPods, the ones you could install a Linux OS instead of the original.

Where this iPods based on ARM processors as well?
