    You can't. Android has to be built exactly for the device model. Fake models like that don't get Android built for them apart from what came out of the box. You're stuck with what you have now.

    You've been told wrong. Well, theoretically you can MAKE your own Android version on it, but if you're even asking how to wipe it, obviously you don't know how to do that. That would require you to know how to program Android.

    The phone probably can be erased to blank (except for the bootloader - once you blank that out, you have a paperweight unless you have the hardware built specifically to program that specific phone). But, as chanchan said, the HAL (the hardware abstraction layer) has to be written for the specific hardware. AOSP (generic open source Android) is available for download but unless you have at least a full schematic (including the internals of any ASICs) of the phone, it won't do you any good.
