I don't know what medion ppc is I looked at the angstrom site. it is not listed as a supported unit, Dell, HP, Zaurus. Each unit it is different some you can download some you have to flash from CF some sd. You have to find out particulars for you device. then reveiw the wiki for specific device. It will give you install directions. as well as downloads needed.

Fwiw: there are legit sites that collect coupons. And there are apps and plugins for it as well.

THAT above, is obviously click-bait though.

Be VERY careful with this...if you don't get it for the exact processor, you will brick it with no way to undo.
