Device through chroot. This app allows you to mount, log in, and manage ANY full Linux system on your Android
Smartphone or Tablet. You can load from either a SDCard partition or from a filesystem image on your

as advanced error management and recovery. This app will tell you what went right, what went wrong, and even has
suggestions on fixing the rare bugs that may come up.

The Profile System allows you to set default settings for different images. Name your system so its easy to keep track of which one is mounted, set default user, home directories, sdcard use, and even automatically clear the VNC locks, without the need to run scripts or type out commands.

The Control Panel allows you to boot straight into the Linux System terminal, start VNC with one click, update different system files, or load in your home directory. A notification service also starts when Linux is detected as mounted, allowing quick access to the Linux Control Panel.
