Complete Linux Installer v2 – BETA 3

A new (And final) BETA for the v2 of the app is now ready for you to download and test.

This will be the last beta before we hit the final stable release so this version should be pretty much stable now.

If you would like to give feedback or if you find a bug that isnt on the below list please email and in the subject include [FEEDBACK] or [BUG] (This also includes any spelling mistakes in the text etc.)

You can grab the apk from HERE

Below is the complete change log from the first beta onwards but the big change for this version is the introduction of a in app file manger.

If you have placed your img file in a different location, up till now you have had to manually type in the complete location of the file, now there is button next to this text box which will open the file manger, then simply navigate to the img file and click it.

All that is left for us to do now is clean up the code, and improve layouts for larger screens. We will also plan to be releasing Ubuntu 12.10 images, bring arch linux to stable and bring fedora/openSUSE to beta to be ready with the stable release. This is going to be one huge stable release!
