DriveDroid (Paid)


This application requires root

DriveDroid allows you to boot your PC from ISO/IMG files stored on your phone. This is ideal for trying Linux distributions or always having a rescue-system on the go... without the need to burn different CDs or USB pendrives.

DriveDroid also includes a convenient download menu where you can download USB-images of a number of operating systems from your phone (like Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Arch Linux). Around 35 different systems are available at this moment.

You can also create blank USB-images which allows you to have a blank USB-drive. From your PC you can store files onto the USB-drive, but also use tools on your PC to write images to the drive.

Notes
• This application uses features of the kernel that may or may not be available/stable on your phone. Tests have shown most phones work without problems, but please keep in mind yours might not (yet) work out-of-the-box.
• Most kernels support emulating USB drives, some support emulating CD-rom drives and kernels with the right patches support both.
• Most Linux-related ISOs can be booted from USB drives, but some ISOs can only be booted from CD-rom drives or require some kind of conversion.

Paid version
• No ads.
• Resizing of images.
• Add your own download repositories. Nice for companies or groups that want to share custom or licensed images.

Instabuy This. Bought this after just 5min in the free app, no more fiddling with crappy usb drives... I can honestly say, I can no longer function properly without this app... Why are you still reading these reviews... Buy it! Use it! Support it!

This app is insane This is the single most useful app for computer repair. I stopped carrying an easily damaged USB drive on my keychain and now have a multi distro live USB environment on my phone. Haven't tried persistent changes yet but mounting images as writeable and being able to change the image size implies that I can....... Works great on galaxy s3 running CyanogenMod 11.

Must have. I use this on my phone and as a dedicated boot device with my old galaxy player. Works great on both. I use a 128GB sdcard to store tons of isos to boot from. Never without the tools I need.
