Can’t wait to get a taste of Google’s Linux-based Android OS? Well, Nokia N810 Internet Tablet owners are in luck. With Android getting ported to handsets like it’s going out of style, it was only a matter of time before an easy-as-pie Android Installer came to light.
Enter the Android Installer for the Nokia N810 Internet Tablet. The new installer makes the previously hair-raising Android-port no more intimidating than a couple file-saves and an installer execution.
You’ll need to make sure your Nokia N810 Internet Tablet is running on the latest firmware (Diablo) and that there’s at least 110MB of free space on your device (internal memory or miniSD card) before you proceed (there are reports that an N800 “kinda” works with this installer, but experiment at your own risk).
Then follow these simple steps:
- Download and save the android.img.bz2 image file to your device (internal or external storage).
- Download and save the android-installer.deb file to your device.
- Install the Android Installer file.
- Reboot device.
- Start Android from the “Extras” menu.
That’s it – easy-peasy, wasn’t it? Of course, Android Installer or no, you’ll be proceeding at your own risk.
