Run Deb Files on Your Android Device

A guy from the androidfanatic forum hasw created a custom Debian Shell for Android.  It’s only a few simple steps, a small firmware flash and voila! You should now be able to run deb files on your rooted G1.  Below are the steps and downloads needed to complete this hack.

  • You need to download a modded firmware update if you are using G1. Get it here.
  • save the file on the SDcard
  • Boot into recovery mode (home+power) then press alt+s to apply changes
  • Download the installer for Debian Shell here.
  • unzip the file and copy the folder debian to SDcard’s root.
  • Go to /sdcard/debian through the terminal
  • Type su
  • Type chmod 4755 *
  • run the installer by typing
  • Type bootdeb to mount and boot the debian system.
