If you are new to Maru OS, read the Installation Guide first! If you are running an older version, read about your options for Upgrading.

This release is for the Nexus 5 (hammerhead) and Nexus 7 2013 Wi-Fi (flo) only! See the device port thread for upcoming device support.



  • Update Mac installer binaries to fix hang on MBP 2016 (installer#2)
  • Fix invalid URL in Linux installer (#73)


  • Disable sshd by default on Maru Desktop (#76)
  • Lock root account on Maru Desktop (blueprints@89195ff)
  • Use secure Maru APT repository for Maru Desktop (blueprints#8)

Note: Even though sshd is disabled by default now, it is still highly recommended to change the default password on the default maru account as soon as you log in to Maru Desktop. This can easily be done by opening up a Terminal, typing passwd maru, and following the prompts. Step-by-step instructions can be found on our Tips wiki page.

Upgrade Notices

When upgrading Maru without a factory reset (see Upgrading Guide: Option 2), you will need to manually upgrade your desktop system to receive the desktop security updates listed above.
