If Linux thinks the card's filesystem may be damaged (i.e., wasn't removed safely/unmounted cleanly) then it will force it to mount in read-only mode. If you are fairly sure it's OK, you can remove the card from the phone and put it in a card reader, then force it to mount in terminal (assuming it shows up as /dev/sdc1, and you make a folder /mnt/usb for it)...

Not all Androids may have a PCM output device in /dev, as Vi0's answer requires. A more general solution is to setup Pulse to stream system audio to a TCP port on your device. Then you can use Simple Protocol Player or PulseDroid in your Android environment to play the stream. To eliminate chop/lag in VLC, MPlayer, and Audacity, it was necessary for me to ...

Complete Linux Installer is somewhat buggy. Try Linux Deploy. It is much more configurable and stable.

Things have changed a little bit in the years since this was posted. There are now several (though none of them perfect yet) ways to run Android apps on Linux without an emulator or VM. Shashlik features pretty nice integration with your GNU desktop environment. Lacks Google Play Services, though. ARChon utilizes Google Chrome, and lets you install ...

Fastboot is so unpredictable, ouch. Try the following steps. Check if your cable is the stock one. If not, at least make sure it supports file transfer in fastboot mode. Check that USB drivers are installed properly Try to rename the recovery file to just "recovery.img", I know it looks stupid, but it did the trick for me. Finally, * the device won't ...

The data sent by the RealVNC Server are not encrypted (see RealVNC documentation). You need to upgrade to a commercial licence to enable encryption. You can use SSH tunnelling, which will wrap the connection between VNC viewer and server into an SSH tunnel, which is (can be) encrypted. TightVNC does that, and it's the VNC server used in Linux Deploy. Just ...

I found way to do this that I'm very happy with. I used Linux Deploy. (It requires root, but here's an alternative for those who don't want to root.) Here's a nearly full version of Xubuntu 16.04 (x86-64) running on my phone. It performs really well. I had no performance issues. Note that this is not a virtual machine. Android and Xubuntu share the ...

Can you put the link to the github post in the post? I don't know a lot about to make(update) a kernel but what I do know is that it requires a lot of programming skill. One of the major problems with mediatek SOCs is that they rarely give out the source-code for their sockets. This makes it even harder go build a custom kernel. I did find one failed ...

I totally doubt if the kernel is for MTK devices because as per my knowledge goes (I too own a MT6582 device) MTK is a partially closed-source SoC manufacturer who gives out the source code by purchasing. MTK makes a standard ROM based on AOSP and gives it out to companies but no companies are allowed to edit the ROM unless they buy the license for it. This ...
