Default Cyanogenmod 11 RUU

I recently got my first Windows phone (HTC Titan II / HTC Radiant), so I am very new to the Windows phone world. But over the past few days I have read a researched as much as I can to remove Windows phone OS and replace it with Android. So far I haven't found much at all that is what I am looking for.. But I am starting to get the idea that Windows phones use these "RUU"s to update everything from the computer and I used one for myself to upgrade my WP rom.

From my understanding, a RUU can do these things:
  • System (the /system mountpoint)
  • Boot (the /boot mountpoint)
  • Recovery
  • User data (the /data mountpoint, this means you lose all of your personal data)
  • It may update your radio image (if newer)
Source: http://android.stackexchange.com/que...what-is-an-ruu

And since all the hardware is compatible with Android.. I don't understand why someone can't make a RUU that will over wipe WP and replace it with Android and maybe in time even install CWM so you won't need to use these RUUs and just use a .zip?

Sorry if this in posted in the wrong thread;
Thank you for reading!

You're living in Sydney. And you baaadly want to live in Washington DC. So - why shouldn't someone just remove Sydney for you and replace it with Washington?
Because it's not possible.
That's the answer.
