Question Android OS on iPod touch 4th generation?

Is there any way I can put the native Android OS on my iPod touch 4th generation without? BTW I'm running iOS 5.0.1, and my battery still sucks. Have you heard of any ways to help save battery life? Help is appreciated! Thanks

There's dreamboard, which includes an android theme that runs ALOT like android imo.

Native Android on iDevices is possible, but only on older ones at this time. And on those older devices, Android has very, very bad battery life. I'm talking 2 hours max.

As I know the newest generation of iPod Touch can not install Android on it because of the hardware.

Agreeing with above, dreamboard is nice for android you can also download other themes like I saw a windows 7 theme.

The question that comes to mind is -- why would you want to?

What's funny is that you want to install Android to get better battery life. As someone who has had 3 different Android phones, battery life was far worse on any of those phones than on my new iPhone 4S (which supposedly has "battery issues").

You want battery issues, leave iOS and go Android.... iOS is like nirvana in comparison.
