Flashing Android Jellybean to my Nokia N9 :-) Advice Sought :-)


I've bought a Nokia N9 near new with the sole purpose of flashing Android to it. I find the idea absolutely fantastic, from the first ICS hacks, and now Jellybean.

I'm new to flashing Android ROMs, NITDROID etc. I've installed operating systems before on Mac and PC's, and jailbroken my iPhones before many times, although not in the last year or so. I'm a little rusty :-)

I'm planning on booting my Mac into Windows, so I can then install the bootloader etc to dualboot my Nokia N9. Lots of dualbooting all round :-) Do you believe the instructions here are clear and easy to follow? I'd appreciate any help from seasoned Android flashers ( :-) ) possible :-)
