    Guardian Project Installer V0.1 Alpha
    Many thanks to the people at www.guardianproject.info for their hard work!


    What is this?

    This is a flashable zip (tested with CWM) that installs most of the apps from the Guardian Project. The guardian project is a non-profit organization that is building apps and tools to help users and whistle-blowers alike to stay safe and anonymous in this day and age. This is a faster way to setup a secure/private device. I also encourage enabling Full Disk Encryption in ICS/JB settings. Quote from the site:

    • Orbot: TOR (Anonymous Web Browsing) for Android

    • Android Privacy Guard: Public Key Crypto (GPG) for Android
