    With this application, you can install Debian 6 on your Android Devices. This runs well and you do not need Root-privileges. However, you will need 900MB of free space.

    After downloading, open the application to install it. This needs some time to install packages before being ran. During boot-time, if you click on the screen, then will you see general settings and resolution settings.

    Notes from Google-Play

    If you have Error -24 when installing this app - install this version (it’s the same app with different name):

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/libsdl-android/files/ubuntu/Debian-15.08.28-xx.apk

    Do not uninstall this app if you have Android 4.4 or older - you will not be able to install it again, because of a bug in Android, which was fixed in Android 5.0.

    Clear app data instead to save space - long-press app icon in drawer, drag it to App Info icon, and select Clear data.

    If you want to use a web-browser, open Terminal and run command sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install iceweasel

    If you want to use Eclipse or other Java applications, install package openjdk-7-jdk and restart Debian app, because default JDK

    Does not work on Samsung devices.

    To disable gyroscope, tap Change device config during app start, select Mouse emulation > Advanced > Gyroscope.

    To set 24bpp color depth or portrait screen orientation, go to Change device config > Video.

    If your favorite music player does not work - install "gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio"
