Introduction
Android devices are not supported by WUR IT. These instructions are merely a guide not a
complete manual. If needed you can get support (on a “best effort” base) from the IT
Servicepoint.
Preconditions
As there are multiple instalments and versions of Android available, the instructions below
can slightly deviate from the versions you are using.
In general the method should be the same.
In this case we have used Android version 4.1 as a base for these instructions.
