USBDriod - HID Compliant Device

Hi,

relatively new to Arduino, and I have a USBDroid, and was looking to use it in a project idea for a controller that requires it to be recognized as a HID compliant device in Windows.

I've seen some vague how-to's on the Leostick subforum, and I've seen elsewhere online that updating the firmware on a vanilla Uno while the board is in DFU mode will make it recognizable by Windows as HID compliant, but I haven't found anything yet for this specific board.

Could someone please assist with the following:
* is the process for updating the firmware on the USBDroid with Flip to make it HID compliant the same as a vanilla Uno
* is there approved firmware/drivers for this specific board for Windows to recognize it as a HID compliant device somewhere that i haven't been able to find as yet?
* will updating the board in the same way as a vanilla Uno invalidate the USB Host/ADK components of this board?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
