This projects aim is to bring a range of linux distros to your android device through a method known as 'chroot', see it has running a linux distro within a virtual machine on your phone. You can access this virtual machine and run it on your phone without causing any damage to your device, or having to overwrite anything. Why might you want this? well my apps are designed to make the install and set up process as easy as possible (more so in the paid apps) while still giving you some flexibility. Once you have the distro up and running then you can pretty much run and install any linux software you like (so long as there is a arm port or it is not architecturaly dependent).

  • It seems good with one huge caveat I can't get my tablet to showw the linux desktop except in portrait mode, it needs landscape!

  • I could not figure out how to extract 2.1 gigabyte from a 150 mb file.

  • Hello guys please help me installing kali Linux on my android. I have already downloaded the file from above but how am I supposed to run Linux on my phone. Hellp

  • I completely agree with darkmath24! I gave the worst marks not because I tried it or I don't like the idea but because it uses the review for unethical advertising.
