- debdroid – starts the debdroid chroot without the apk wrapper.
- debshell – wrapper for passing commands to the chroot. Example – “debshell “apt-get update”
- debkill – kills the chroot in case anything goes wrong
- /etc/debdroid.conf contains options such as img location, dns servers, loop number and shared directory.
- Note: The shared directory is mounted to /mnt/share in the chroot environment.
- Apk: com.afrosec.debdroid.apk – apk wrapper that essentially launches “bash debshell”

Debdroid comes preinstalled with nmap, ettercap, ssh, g++ and gcc. With a chroot environment you are able to install software with the native package manager and completely avoid cross-compiling.
You are able to drop to a bash shell in the chroot by executing “debshell bash”
In order to get ssh up execute “debshell sshup”
In the previous release of Debdroid I showed its capabilities of WLAN sniffing using your device, this is still an applicable use.
Script Manager Compatibility:
Because debshell can pass commands directly to the chroot sub-system you can use a script manager app to launch commands as well.
Debdroid provides the user with a full Linux environment you can ssh into. This may cater to the needs of the of the individuals who need to perform device-related linux tasks without an actual linux workstation.
Debdroid supports any Android device with loopback devices and ext2, flashable zip works on ICS/GB.
