    Hey guys.

    I basically want to know if I can change the O.S. on a 2in1 TabletPC from Windows10, to Android6.0 Marshmallow?



    I came across this article on the site the other day:

    http://www.tabletpcreview.com/feature/rca-12-2-inch-android-2-1-hands-250-tabletlaptop/

    As it turns out, about a year and a half ago, I did buy a Tablet that I think this article was talking about. The specs information for it is right here:

    Pro12 with WiFi 12.2" Touchscreen Tablet PC:
    Technical Specifications:

    • 1.30GHz quad-core processor
    • 2GB DDR of system memory

    Additional Features:

    • 1 x headphone jack, 1 x microUSB 2.0 port, 1 x miniHDMI port, 1 x USB 2.0 port

    I had come to LOVE it. Especially for the screen-size. It was perfect for ebook reading, web-reading, and I could use it to interface with my normal PC using teammvier and software like that.

    Unfortunately, a couple of weeks ago, it broke after being badly gouged by a wall-plug.

    I had been looking around to buy an IDENTICAL copy, but haven't had much luck. So I've been pretty bummed about that.
    But... a day or so ago, I did come across this new Tablet-device that is -- in terms of hardware -- actually pretty similar to mine.

    12.2" Windows 2-in-1 Tablet with Travel Keyboard by RCA

    • Windows 10 Home
    • Microsoft Office 365 (One-month trial for new Office 365 customers)
    • Intel Celeron N4000 with 2GB RAM
    • 2GB DDR of System Memory
    • 64GB Flash Memory
    • 12.2" touchscreen, 1920 x 1200 IPS display
    • Front 2MP Camera, Rear 2MP Camera
    • Bluetooth 4.0
    • MicroSD Card Slot Supports up to 128GB
    • Up to 6-Hours Battery Life

    In fact, if anything, it's even more powerful hardware-wise than my old one. The big difference though is that it runs Windows10, not Android6.0 Marshmallow.

    So, what I want to know is that if I do buy this new one, can I replace the built-in software with Android 6.0 Marshmallow? And, if I did do that, how differently would the new one function compared to if this new one had come pre-installed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow?

    I'm really dying to know!
    THANKS IN ADVANCE!! :rolleyes:

    Very few chance that you can do it.
    Often devices are specific for an os.

    In the old old days Intel actively sought Android builds for thei Atom schlock. And many Chinese venders sold dual boot Windows/Abdroid Atom tablets. But good luck finding tgat exact build for that tablet, even if its the exact tablet that the Android build wad made for. Chances are it is not.

    There are Android OS folks you can install on X86 devices but ymmv and most of them have stopped active development anyways.

    Also, its stupid idea. Nothing to be gained from doing that anyways.
