[edit] Installing NITDroid

This tutorial is specifically designed to install Nitdroid on the internal memory of the N900 (EMMC) and does not apply to installation on an external micro SD card. The main purpose of installing Nitdroid on the internal memory is that in most cases you will see an increased performance.

There are two ways of installing NITDroid:

1. Copy NITDroid's rootfs to /and in /home: Easier - Faster

1. Download the NITDroid Autoinstaller to ./MyDocs i.e. root directory of N900 and install it:
