Can kobo glo run android app such as nook glo?
Hi. I'm newby. I've travelled around the 4rum and see many threads showing how to up the kobo glo firmware. I'm wondering if those firmware can help kobo glo run android apps like the nook glo. There're a lot of videos showing how to root the nook, can i do the same with my glo?

Nook already runs an Android so it can run Android apps.
But Kobo runs a regular Linux, not an Android. It can run Linux programs instead, with all the corresponding difficulties of compiling binaries or trying to display stuff on screen (something Android conveniently abstracts out).
