Just got a safe vault running on my Nexus 6. It was a bit of a hack and requires root with Linux Deploy. If there is any interest I will do a tutorial on how to set it up.
EDIT: Tutorial (root is required). There are a few other options for linux on android that don’t require root but I was not able to get them to install successfully.
Sorry to keep you all waiting!
