Complete Linux Installer is an all in one solution to installing Linux distros on your Android device. Brought to you by the LinuxonAndroid project the app is designed to allow you to install a full Linux distro without touching your Android install.
Current distros include Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, ArchLinux, Kali Linux, openSUSE and more coming soon!

* Kernel that supports loop devices (see for known working kernels and ROMs)
* Armv7 processor (Debian does work on Armv6 but other distros do not)
* As much free RAM as possible (you are after all installing a desktop OS)

--------------------Included in the app--------------------
* Installer for Ubuntu 13.04, 13.10, Debian 5 and 8, Kali Linux, Fedora 19, Arch Linux
* All future Linux distros I support
* Boot widget
* Linux Launcher
* Both Torrent and Normal download options

------------------Permissions Explained------------------
android.permission.INTERNET - Used to download the image files
android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE - Used to download the image files - Used to check the donation key
jackpal.androidterm.permission.RUN_SCRIPT - Needed to run the boot script within the terminal

    I get: "error: could not open file: /etc/mtab: No such file or directory" and a couple of other errors... Kinda sucks - it'd be great to be actually able to use my device (sans Android) ... Quad-core is just pointless w/this OS. ... I'm gonna try to image SD through PC that has a working functional OS, like another person did. ... Hey - how many hours and apps does it take to install 1 distro on
