    Maybe the title of this thread could be changed to something a bit more newbie-friendly? Something like "FAQ: Can I install Android on my device?" or similar.

    Also, perhaps clarify that neither MB nor MC second-gens can run Android. I can see some people being confused by that.

    It might also be helpful to note that even if your device is supported, you can only install Android if you're running 3.1.2, not 3.1.3 or 4.0.
