Debian Kit

Debian Kit


Kit for debootstrapping Debian Linux on Android devices. No PC required, no image download. Debian Squeeze, Ubuntu Lynx / Precise on ARM or i386 supported. Of course: devices must be rooted to install the kit later on. Installed image will be integrated to Android with symlinks and bind-mounts in order to run Linux on demand side-by-side, hence no chroot jail. Stock ROMs and customized ROMS supported.

The app currently only checks the prerequisites and displays some details about potential showstoppers. The app also includes an offline version of the readme web page. Be sure to RTFM, maybe watch the screen casts (tap video links in the readme, H.264 playback capabilities and Inet required for this).

If you have a i386 tablet (Wetab/Exopc) with android-x86.org/Corvusmod-ICS, you may want to install VirtualBox for the real fun - vbox modules are included with the kit.

I would be pleased if you send me a PM with your device details for inclusion in the tested-devices list.

Recent changes:
Added background worker for checks as well as verdict descriptions. New laucher icon.

S4 unsupported CPU I already have super-su. Installed busy box and even set selinux to passive before install..... it unpacked fine but never prompted the install..... so I look in /data/local/deb and ran the install. It says "unsupported CPU/architecture"..... The developer did a decent job you guys. At least he included a message that CPU is not supported rather than the install blasting away and ffffffing everything up.

It's wonderful having a full linux intermingled with android.. desktop through RDP is better than vnc. some problems Using Debian Jesse... copying to external micro-sd card from within debian reboots on nook stock root (ICS)... You should give an option for larger loop-file-systems for people who have exfat (large file support). I expanded the disk by hand.

Great work guys,but.... Hey guys how about adding some network supports like iw and iwconfig. Other than that works perfectly as ubuntu terminal :-). Edit: Got iw by "apt-get install iw" but still no iwconfig. Edit: Got iwconfig in wireless-tools; Changing to five star
