I am pretty good at basic Windows stuff, ie, finding which directory something's gone into, to make the correct paths, (only saying this b/c sometimes I see people asking questions who do not even understand something that basic!) but for example, when i use Calibre, I just "plug and play" - no manipulating anything on my books other than editing metadata LOL!
So, I hate to be a bother, but could you possibly explain the directions at XDA for someone as ignorant as I, or should I just give up and wait for n2a (I understand your dislike of them taking a freely given code that someone worked out, and making money off it, but for people like me, we need more thorough instructions or else just need to be able to purchase it already done). Thanks!

edited - OK, I see what I did wrong - when I downloaded the Win32Disk Imager it actually downloaded the source file rather than the binary I needed to install it. Once I did that it was easy to write the image to the microSD. I haven't been brave enough yet to try it out but plan to today. Please advise if I've done anything else wrong!
It is reasons like the above that drive people to the N2A site.
I don't WANT to fiddle with my device; I want to plug in an sd card [at most!] and have it work...
