Kit for debootstrapping Debian Linux on Android devices. No PC required, no image download. Debian Squeeze, Ubuntu Lynx / Precise on ARM or i386 supported. Of course: devices must be rooted to install the kit later on. Installed image will be integrated to Android with symlinks and bind-mounts in order to run Linux on demand side-by-side, hence no chroot jail. Stock ROMs and customized ROMS supported.

The app currently only checks the prerequisites and displays some details about potential showstoppers. The app also includes an offline version of the readme web page. Be sure to RTFM, maybe watch the screen casts (tap video links in the readme, H.264 playback capabilities and Inet required for this).

If you have a i386 tablet (Wetab/Exopc) with android-x86.org/Corvusmod-ICS, you may want to install VirtualBox for the real fun - vbox modules are included with the kit.

I would be pleased if you send me a PM with your device details for inclusion in the tested-devices list.

    I've tried installing this manually and can't get it to start when I type 'deb'. It installs fine (through all stages). It just will not start - '/boot is read-only' or '/etc/mtab is read-only'. Pity :( Incidentally I'm running cyanogen ICS on an HP Touc

    Tried just about all the others and they fail on the first or second step. Every one. I suspect this is because they don't keep up with changes to Android but who knows / cares. This is the only one that works on 4.3 that I've found. LXDE is very quic
