Linux AutoLoader

Linux AutoLoader


-This app REQUIRES a rooted device AND busybox installed-

Welcome to Linux AutoLoader (LinLoad for short), the tool for COMPLETE Linux management within your Android
Device through chroot. This app allows you to mount, log in, and manage ANY full Linux system on your Android
Smartphone or Tablet. You can load from either a SDCard partition or from a filesystem image on your
device.

This app comes with built in support for swap usage, transportable and interchange-able home directories, as well
as advanced error management and recovery. This app will tell you what went right, what went wrong, and even has
suggestions on fixing the rare bugs that may come up.

The Profile System allows you to set default settings for different images. Name your system so its easy to keep track of which one is mounted, set default user, home directories, sdcard use, and even automatically clear the VNC locks, without the need to run scripts or type out commands.

The Control Panel allows you to boot straight into the Linux System terminal, start VNC with one click, update different system files, or load in your home directory. A notification service also starts when Linux is detected as mounted, allowing quick access to the Linux Control Panel.

- Built-in automatic VNC screen size setting, detects proper screen to set for ANY device

- Provides a Profile system to help manage settinhs across multiple Images and partitions
- Runs ALL ARM-based Images and filesystems

I am aware that the system does not mount properly on the first or second try, it is very high on the list of things to fix, as I use the device as well.
