After I installed F-Droid I noticed that Debian was available to be installed, although I did not do this (yet, anyways.) 

 

Here you can learn how to install Firefox OS : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox_OS/Installing_on_a_mobile_device 

Again, I didn't do this yet either.

Hi folks...

After some back and forward i managed to install Puppy to my Android phones 8 gig SD card.

My first experience was that I could not just do a normal install as in making the SD card bootable. It made the SD card into FAT16, that my phone did not read. So it needed to be FAT32.

Here is a short description of my way of doing "IT".
