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.

it works IT WOOOORKS!!!! YAYYY!!! great support. not that easy to get it working since it can crash and leave you with a half-installed system. but then, you just tell it to install everything again, and hope this time it doesn't crash. and then, you have a full debian system inside your phone.
