    Would it be possible to flash a WP7 to Android? My wife bought herself a HTC Arrive and she hates it, but she broke the glass cover of the screen. It still works perfectly fine but is shattered, so we cant find anyone to trade it. Just curious if it would be possible!?

    Almost certainly impossible to install WP7 itself - i think the hardware requirements for WP7 are pretty well locked down by microsoft. However there are several WP7 style launchers on the market which would make the front end at least seem like a WP7 phone:

    https://market.android.com/details?id=info.tikuwarez.launcher3
    https://market.android.com/details?id=opengl_es.aphone7
    https://market.android.com/details?id=chrisman.android.home.metroui.stable

    Installing one of these probably wont fix the broken glass though. ;)

    I think OP meant he wants to flash Android on his wifes WP7 phone, not the other way around. That is at least how I'm reading it.

    OP, someone would have to work on a port for that phone for the specific drivers. I'm sure that it's possible but I doubt anyone is working on it. Why does she hate WP7? I actually liked it quite a bit when I used it.
