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.

Saved my a$$ This app is great. It has some stability issues, but on my Nexus 4, it absolutely did what it's supposed to do and allowed me to revive a Windows machine (w/rufus) while traveling, on a machine with USB as my only external media option. Once that was done, I created a blank writable image, and used that to move the ethernet driver onto the new image so I could get the machine online for the rest of the drivers. Brilliant. Great app. I bought the pro version even though I only (probably) need it just this once. This developer deserves it.

Great app. The only gripe I have is not being able to save the downloaded image to the sdcard or open the image from there. If this problem is solved, this app would be one of the best app I have ever used. EDIT : I can use iso from sdcard when I used paid app. Before I am using the free version unconciously because the paid version does not remove or integrate the free ones. This causes confusion for me. Great app by the way.

Great stuff Was short a USB drive when reinstalling a machine, or so I thought. This app saved me a trip to the store, thank you. Seems to work well on 5.1 N6.
