Sorry, no idea. Probably not because it lacks an external SD-card. There has been some comment that it should be possible to do on an Aura (also no SD-card). Search the main Kobo Android threads and also angor's instructions.

But from what I've seen of android on a Aura HD is it's not worth the bother. It's slow, there is no no-refresh app, everything is so tiny it's hard to see etc. It might be better on the Glo, which you might be able to do on a Kobo Glo HD. But it's never been done AFAIK.

Better to get an Onyx or a Boyue or a root a Nook ST.

Aura lacks external microSD slot, but more importantly it has fixed memory, but it's still possible to use external microSD to dual boot Android and Kobo OS.
