The application creates a disk image on the flash card, mount it and install there OS distribution. Applications of the new system are run in a chroot environment and working in parallel with platform Android. All changes made on the device are reversible, ie the application and components can be removed completely. Installation of a distribution kit is carried out on a network from the official mirrors online. The application are required superuser rights (ROOT).

Through the interface you can manage the process of installing the OS, and after installation, you can start and stop services of the new system (there is support for running your scripts). The installation process is displayed as text reports in the main application window. During the installation, the program will adjust the work environment, which includes the base system, SSH server, VNC server and desktop environment. Also through the program interface to manage server settings SSH and VNC.

How to make a root

Don't expect it to work on all phones S3 i9300 4.3 Jellybean. I've given it 3 hours of my life, and I now hereby give up. This does not work on the above phone and firmware version. At least not in its current form. Maybe with more tweaking I could hack my way through it, but I'm not prepared to spend more time on this. Brilliant idea if it works for your phone. If not, move on.

Excellent Updates Great, I tested it ubuntu 14.10 &15.04 and they both work, my personal fav being Ubuntu vivid with xubuntu installed as the environment. You've been on a role updating frequently which is awesome, so I hope one day this app supports the installation of bodhi Linux.
