LUKS Manager 2.4 Reviews - by Softmenu Mobile Editor

LUKS Manager is an app for Android Apps. With the latest version of LUKS Manager, you can have your mobile worked better.

Driver Description - by Publisher

Apps description is given by Nemesis][ - the apps publisher/developer, and it is made no changes by softmenu.

Apps Full Description see below:

*** Note: Your device MUST be *ROOTED* for this work. It will not work on non-rooted devices! ***

LUKS Manager provides on-the-fly encryption (AES by default) to virtual folders on Android devices.

These virtual folders can be dynamically mounted, unmounted, created and deleted as needed. Similar to Truecrypt in functionality.

Note: Truecrypt and LUKS Manager volumes are not cross-compatible.

Note: Maximum volume size is limited by the filesystem it is created on. Most SD Cards are formatted as FAT32 and FAT32 only supports file sizes up to 4GB. This is a limitation of the filesystem not LUKS Manager. If you want volumes larger than 4GB you must create the volume on an EXT2/4 partition.

**** If the application does not work for you, please visit my forums and let me know! I'm just one person, I have one device I test on; simply telling me it doesn't work for you doesn't help me at all. ****

If you have any problems, questions, comments or concerns please visit my forums and speak up!

The Android device must:

* Be rooted *

* Have a kernel that supports secure dm-crypt modes (CONFIG_DM_CRYPT) and loopback devices

* Have BusyBox installed

* Have SuperUser installed

Most stock kernels do NOT work!

This package contains:

* A statically compiled and stripped version of cryptsetup for the ARM7 using the tools provided by The Guardian Project.

* A statically compiled and stripped version of mkdosfs from dosfstools package for the ARM7.

* A bash shell script called "luks" that does volume management.

* A native java app that provides a GUI interface to the luks script and a basic file explorer.
