Fixable on android 5.1 I'm using this on android 5.1 - there's a patch for linker on xda that will make this (and other executables 5.0 broke) work again. After patching linker this works like a charm

looks nice, but not working on 4.3 Update: Problem apps2sd implementation causing Android to run out of available loop devices. Not fault of app itself. Buggers :-( ******************************* Loop device handling no longer functional, thus image can't be mounted.
