However Our own range of testing devices is very limited, I myself (The Lead Dev) am a University Student and on of the other two devs is still in school, thus our income is very very limited and we are unable to get extra devices.
This has been ok as we have been able to rely on the community to test and report working devices. But it has come to a point where there are some large bugs on devices we dont have that we feel must be fixed but cant be without us having the devices to test and work out the fix!
So this is where we have decided to start a donation fund to get more devices so we can officially support them and stamp out those evil bugs!
We are aiming to raise $1500 which will get us a range of devices but any money we get will go towards new devices and helping to improve LinuxonAndroid!
Please see the Fund page here to see what we are aiming to get and the perks you can get for donating!
If you cant help by donating consider helping by spreading the word!
Ok guys time for something new!
I have kept the same old rather dated and rubbish blogspot site since the project started, simply because it was easy, which is very lazy on my part
Well! we now have a nice new shiny website!
The new site will be taking over form the old blogspot site in the week as I move the rss feeds in the app and sending stuff to facebook etc over to the new site and make sure everythings working.
However you can check it out right now http://linuxonandroid.org/
You will also notice a wiki link in the main menu, which takes you to our brand new (and very much empty!) wiki site http://wiki.linuxonandroid.org/ We will be filling in some information over the next few days. But seeing as it is a wiki the main goal is for the community behind the project (Thats you guys) to fill the wiki up, prehaps your device needed some tweaks to get it working? Write a wiki page for it! Prehaps you have a cool use for LinuxonAndroid and want to show other users how to set it up (maybe a webserver?) Write a wiki page for it!
In time we will develop it further but you are all more than welcome to dive in and start making pages, and templates for different pages etc etc.

This will be fixed shortly but I have a very slow upload speed so will not be done until tomorrow so until then simply delete the .md5 file and you shouldnt have any problems!
Its very rare for me to post about something that isnt LinuxonAndroid (and I do try not to) but as some of may know I am a university student (and there fore money is always tight).
I will have to move shortly into a new flat which will pretty much wipe me out money wise so I have started actively looking for more work (dont worry this in no way effects LinuxonAndroid it still gets the same amount of love!).
And I have restarted my Freelancer.com profile and started looking for jobs, so if there are any small projects to do with android/websites/coding etc please think of me!

This brings it a good time to ask for anyone that would like to translate the app into there own language.
If you think your up to translating then head over to https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxonandroid/files/Translate_Text/? where you will find the files to translate and how to do it!
(Note if you want to translate the new strings in one of the already translated languages just translate those in the strings.xml under 16/08/-2012)
*Allow creation of 1GB SWAP file for Donation users (kernel must support it)

*Removed SU check, caused cut error on many devices
*Added support to create a 1GB SWAP file and use it
