This app will install Debian Wheezy.
You do not need to root your device, it will work fine with any stock ROM.
You will need 600 Mb free on internal storage. This app cannot be installed to SD card.
A mouse or stylus is highly recommended.

Please use apt-get in root terminal to install packages, because Synaptic sometimes crashes.

Audio is not supported yet.

This app is NOT full Debian OS - it is a compatibility layer, which allows you to run Debian applications.
Your phone is NOT rooted during installation.
This is NOT official Debian.org release.

If you have Error -24 when installing this app - install this version (it's the same app with different name):
http://sourceforge.net/projects/libsdl-android/files/ubuntu/Debian-xx-14.05.02.apk

Do not uninstall this app - you will not be able to install it again, because of a bug in Android: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=68310
Clear app data instead to save space - long-press app icon in drawer, drag it to App Info icon, and select Clear data.

If you want to use web browser, open Root terminal and run command apt-get update ; apt-get install iceweasel

If you want to use Eclipse or other Java applications, install package openjdk-7-jdk and restart Debian app, because default JDK does not work on Samsung devices.

Linux at it's best. Great work. If you get a black screen after installing go to the app manager clear the data and run the app again. It worked great the second time. Installed LyX from the root terminal and it runs well. Very responsive on Nexus 7 - much better than Ubuntu on Android on a rooted Nexus 7.

TimingPower RK3188 This works great on the TimingPower RK3188. The terminal font can be increased by using CTRL+Right Click and you can select a larger font from the menu. If you have a physical mouse you'll have to enable it at the start up configuration screen. SSH installs great and works great also. I've just started using the app but so far it's really worked great. Also the available configuration in XFCE are very handy. I'm using a Brookstone HDMI pocket slim projector and it looks and works great on it.

Nothing Really excited about this app downloaded it and set it up. When it loads nothing! Just a blank screen! I would appreciate if you could shed some light on why it is not working and/or fix the problem.
