Defender (by nodevel) - updated for encrypted devices

Your rating: None Average: 5 (7 votes)

This is the original application Defender by nodevel , see:

and its (old!) repository


It was updated for devices with encrypted /home volume, on which it caused boot problems (of course it can also be used on unencrypted devices). And taken care of the new 'defaultuser'.

No more, no less.


New forked repo can now be found here:


Application versions: 
File harbour-defender-0.4.1-1.armv7hl.rpm83.88 KB23/11/2020 - 02:10
File harbour-defender-0.4.2-1.armv7hl.rpm84.19 KB02/12/2020 - 22:12


take over from nodevel and fixing the boot loop on encrypted devices

as well as taking care of new default user name 'defaultuser' or old 'nemo'



fixing the start issue of path unit which caused the infinite update loop

Installation on Xperia X still not possible. Any suggestions?

No, not really. Without any info?

Maybe this repo not enabled and still having nodevel's enabled?

And there were/are no installation problems known...

Maybe see here in case of package cache refresh necessary or some conflicts of defender (e.g. adhosts) still installed.
