The Mobian project aims to bring Debian to mobile devices. Over time, the idea is to minimize the Mobian specific pieces by “upstreaming” customization to the original projects. It is maintained by 2 distinct (but overlapping) teams:
the Mobian team is responsible for maintaining downstream packages (containing non-upstreamable patches and/or not ready for inclusion into Debian) and non-packaging tasks, such as image generation and distribution
the DebianOnMobile team maintains packages which are already part of the Debian archive.
For a list of supported devices, along with installation instructions for each one, see Supported Devices.
See our FAQ page if you have questions.
For a list of mobile-friendly apps, see the "What applications can I use for "X"?" section of our FAQ.
For instructions on how to do common things you may want to do with your Mobian device, see How-to.
For instructions on how to tweak common things you may want to tweak with on Mobian device, see Tweaks.
