Default [Q] Android on idevice

Hi everybody

I'm an andoid user. I have a galaxy s4 on 4.3.2. and an iPad 2 with ios 7.1.1.

I hate ios, because it is not as free as android. So, is there anyway to install android on ipad?

Two years ago there was iboot, but I think it doesnt exist anymore

Sell my iPad and buy an android tablet is really not an option

I have seen lots of people asking for it across the forum, but everytime the answer was no, so I would assume there is no option for that. But Im not 100% sure, maybe someone will come up with solution the main problem would be bootloader which is locked, what makes it impossible to flash amother kernel, and Android kernel is needed to boot android, it would not work on apple kernel.

ios sucks. there is no freedom. you can't use tasker, you can't connect to some bluetooth devices, you can't do anything

I really don't understand how can people like apple

Anyway, I think everybody would appreciate if a dev comes out with a solution, if it is possible of course.

I don't think the bootloader is even compatible. Hey, the kernel needs modifications to work on Apple hardware too. Without the source codes, it's impossible.

What? Some Bluetooth devices don't work with Apple devices?

P.S. People who like apple=they dislike customization/too noob for advanced customization.
