    Can anybody tell me how I would install Android on a Blackberry Torch 9800? I need somewhere to download the Android packages/OS, and instructions on how to install. If more specs/questions are needed, please tell me.

    Is that even possible? if you wanted an Android device, why did you buy a BlackBerry?

    I don't think so. I certainly can't find anything on teh interwebz suggesting that it's been done.

    It may be a second-hand bargain, a gift, or perhaps it simply suited the OP at the time but is now surplus to requirements? Regardless, it's pretty irrelevant to the question. ;)

    To put this into perspective, it's hard enough being the first person to get AOSP android working on an Android device that is open source. Imagine what it takes to get it working on a closed source, proprietary hardware only, non-android device. It takes a demi-god of a developer (whom may even need to be psychic) to get it half working. They may even need to be a god.

    If it's not well documented ont he internet already, then its not happening.

    the closest thing i have heard of (keep in mind this is when i had a BlackBerry) was the Android player for certian OS versions (often on Playbook). but it was sorta like a Wine-type compatibility layer, which did not support a lot of Android apps
