But this is not a general rule, and you still need to know which devices have been extensively tested and reported to work well with Android, as well as what are the easiest and most reliable installation methods. After all, you don’t want to brick your device. Here are five devices you can easily install Android on.
When HP decided to drop the price of their webOS-based touchpad tablet, everyone jumped on it, and pretty soon the internet had a way to install Android on it. Over time, the process has been fine-tuned to be stable enough that there are no problems with the device, and the CyanogenMod staff is constantly updating it with new versions. There are still bugs in the KitKat build, so we would suggest moving to Jelly Bean.
