Cool utility. I've tried Debian Kit, but this is more powerful and flexible.

Does not work This installer provides just for an endless progression of 'permissions denied', 'invalid users', 'No such file or directory', 'failed installation', a.s.o. - completely independent of where on my Samsung Note 10. 2014 Eds.'s internal or external SD card I tried to install, independent of the installation path, independent of the installation type, and other options in the setup. I could never get as far as making a proper initrd, let alone getting any distro installed. Upon removing the app, not even Titanium Backup was able to fully wipe away all the stuff left behind, like several corrupted img files and tons of files of type L12345.GRANTED.ru.meekfi..., where 'GRANTED.ru.' probably means that you just had the SVR checking your machine.
