Allows you to create and launch a Debian Wheezy rootfs without rooting your device when used along with GNURoot (champion.gnuroot).

Primarily, I install packages with apt-get ( and I suggest you do the same). To use apt-get you will need to click the "Launch as Fake Root" checkbox. A good place to start is to do:
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
Then start working. If you find out that something you need is not installed, just apt-get it. To install less, do this:
apt-get install less
That is pretty obvious, but sometimes it is not. You can use a search engine (like google to help you out). For example, I found out to install R, I should do this:
apt-get install r-base
You can also search for packages using
apt-cache search some_keyword
A very popular package to add right away is this one:
apt-get install build-essential
This gets you setup to run the make and compile steps of many SW projects.

Recently changed in this version

Hard links now emulated better. All known package installation issues solved as a result.

    Thank you so much for the awesome app! If I wasn't a starving college student, I would've donated much, much more than a dollar for this! Great work! Thank you!

    A fully functioning Debian cli, working well on my unrooted Samsung Galaxy Core and Asus Memo Pad HD7. The base installation is minimal, and some dependencies are missing (e.g. cpp for calendar), but as you have apt-get you can easily resolve missing dependencies and add any extra cli applications you need.

    Man pages not updating when apt-get upgrade. mandb process trying to run as EUID=6 but doesn't work. Otherwise nice to use.
