I have a truly awful device called a mobiwire ogima, the hardware is nice but the software is some of the most shocking I've ever seen - and I used to program in access.
The soc inside is a mediatec mt6739, with nice big physical buttons but no touch-screen.

What I'm wondering is could I put a rom with another OS, hopefully something easy to use like Symbian or a standard android version. This is for an elderly user, so simpler is better ( instructions with more than 3 steps are pointless - and one of them is usually 'stop holding down the power button - that will tun it off' )

I'd like some input on if this is -
a) possible and
b) a good idea

If this isn't possible, my only other option is violence towards electronics possibly featuring power tools, followed by teaching a 90 year old how to use a touch screen without pushing so hard it cracks (true story, which is why I'm so attached to physical buttons for this)

AFAIK you can't replace existing Symbian OS by Android OS, because the Android OS is targeted specifically by the device manufacturers.
