    Downloaded Windows 7 LITE in the market and its a blue screen with an error message. Its supposed to be a joke. Hehehe!

    If there is a launcher, I haven't found it.

    It's not ditching it it's just an app to allow you to have windows 7 on there.

    download a file explorer onto your phone from off the android Market either e strongs or Astro (I prefer E strongs I find it simpler to use and it has more options). grab your phones usb cable and hook your phone to your computer. Drag and drop your windows 7 file onto your phone. Once thats done Safely remove your phones usb attachment from your computer.

    Now on to file explorer that you previously downloaded, open it up and scroll down to your newly added windows 7 file open and install :)


    Or you can skip all that and just email the file to your self

    Ok, so I emailed it to myself and downloaded it. When i went to open it I get a message saying "Install Blocked! For security, your phone has been set to block installation od applications not sourced in Android Market."

    Is there a way to turn off the block??

    Because your on AT&T and they block the unknown location setting. You either got to run a custom rom or sideload it from your pc.

    It is a home replacement. The guys at XDA have been converting it from chinese to english for the past couple weeks. If your gonna install it you need to grab it from XDA not the developers site.
