Hi people.

I'm a total newbie as far as android goes. I've had a android phone for a while but I only use it as a phone. I have an old HTC Desire A8183 that I'm interested in using not as a phone but just for apps. However its so old I am unable to install anything, the browser is too old to work with the play store, etc..

Is it possible to upgrade it to a newer version of android? If so how hard is it? If it helps I'm pretty experienced with using various linux distros, I just have no idea where to even start with hacking android
