Debian noroot


This app will install Debian Jessie.
You do not need to root your device, it will work fine with any stock ROM.
You will need 900 Mb free on internal storage. This app cannot be installed to SD card.
A mouse or stylus is highly recommended.

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-15.06.27.apk
Do not uninstall this app if you have Android 4.4 or older - you will not be able to install it again, because of a bug in Android, which was fixed in Android 5.0.
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 Terminal and run command sudo apt-get update ; sudo 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.

To disable gyroscope, tap Change device config during app start, select Mouse emulation → Advanced → Gyroscope.

To set 24bpp color depth or portrait screen orientation, go to Change device config → Video.

Pretty good, but.... This a really cool and good app! The loss of one star is that you cannot ping anybody. When I try to ping google, it says that creating an icmp socket takes higher permissions. What?! I was running as root! Also, when I manually created an icmp socket via the python interpreter, and then tried to connect, it would not. Please fix this.

Dude yes! It's great. At first I thought it would have some limitations since it's on top of android but it's just like a regular Linux distribution. Installing KDE plasma right now to see if it can handle it. And it's not entirely outdated.You should do this with other flavours
