Bootstrap a Debian system in a file, mostly for deploying to Android.
This tool uses Multistrap to bootstrap a Debian (or Debian-based) system into an image file as well as adding an Android-targeted launcher script to chroot into the system.
Requirements on the host system:
- Python 3.3 or up
- Jinja 2.7 or up
- because of Multistrap: a Debian (or Debian-based) system
Requirements on the target device:
- root access
- Busybox (this might be pre-installed on your system or you could use one of the various installers on the Play Store)
- a kernel that supports loop mounts and whatever file system you wish to use
Installation with pip:
# pip3 install android-debian-builder
Installation from the source tarball:
# python3 setup.py install
Simply running android-debian-builder (as root) will start building a Debian image in the current directory. To see possible command line options, run android-debian-builder --help. Usually, you’ll want to customise the configuration; the easiest way is to dump the default configuration with android-debian-builder --print-config and build your own based on that.
Additional example configurations are included. These can be found in android_debian_builder/examples in the source distribution or in the examples` subdirectory of the installed package. To include one of these examples in your configuration setup, prefix the file name with ``builtin:examples/ on the command line, like so:
# android-debian-builder --config builtin:examples/jessie-armhf.cfg
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
