    I was wondering if it is possible to root the HTC 8X to successfully run the new 4.1 Jellybean OS? Has there been any kernels created yet?

    Doesn't look like there is much development for the 8X. This would be the place to check: Windows Phone 8x by HTC - xda-developers

    Android on the 8X would be pretty cool, I love the dedicated camera button and phone size in general.

    Been looking for this for my 920 too, just because. So far no one has shown any support for porting android to wp8 devices.

    Due to the differing natures of the two operating systems you would not be able to have the windows phone store and google play store in the same phone (HTC HD2 notwithstanding and that is only because of dual boot, not achievable on the 8X)

    I had the Droid DNA which is essentially the bigger version of the 8x and let me tell you that is an attractive device with an ugly os. I hope I never see a 920 or 8x running android

    Though if someone wants the play store wouldn't it be better to just get an actual android phone.

    I think the same. The 8X is a beautiful phone for WP users. Just leave it to us.

    This reminds me of this Engadget test of the 8X, in which they wrote in the wrap-up something like: "The 8X is nice looking, we want it with Android" which I found just stupid.

    The HTC One X+ is a great phone that is also very appealing to the eye, so just buy this. It even has much more high-end specs, which is only good for the Android OS.
