Complete Linux Installer, is an application for the Android operating system that enables users to boot a desktop Linux distribution from an Android device via chroot.

The secondary operating system installs from a loop-mounted image file, and is able to access the Android filesystem. The user interacts with the secondary operating system via VNC. Complete Linux Installer functions only on rooted installations of Android.[1]

Complete Linux Installer was developed by ZPwebsites; it is the premiere product of their LinuxonAndroid initiative.

In December 2013, ZPwebsites launched a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to subsidize development of firmware similar to Ubuntu for Android, which would integrate the secondary and host operating systems.[2][3]
