Android: Lil' Debi
« on: November 15, 2014, 07:37:13 PM »
Just tried out Lil' Debi on a few devices with some success:

Quote
The aim of Lil’ Debi is to provide a transparent and tightly integrated Debian install on your Android device. It mounts all of your Android partitions in Debian space, so you see a fusion of both systems. Its even possible to have Lil’ Debi launch the normal Debian init start-up scripts when it starts, so that all you need to do is apt-get install and any servers you install will just work.

The aim is to make it work with as few modifications to the Android system as possible. Currently, it only adds a /bin symlink, and a /debian mount directory. It does not touch /system at all.

Highly recommend checking the "Using Debian" section in the related Wiki:

With additional work, it's even possible to run wireshark...

For a minute there, I thought it was a new version of Android OS, named after the snack cakes.  ;D

I was so hoping it was a flavor of Debian that would run on Android devices.  No such luck. :(
Cool concept, though...  :Thmbsup:

That would have been cool along with Edvard's wish especially :)
