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.

A Definite Lifesaver This app have definitely saved my a** since I didn't think to burn the disc, nor install the ISO onto bootable flash drive. A huge thanks to the author. Thanks! (BTW, I would recommend CyanogenMod OS and its derivatives as it makes things a whole lot simpler.)

Darn. My device is shown to have problems... Looks great, sounds great, and deserves 5 stars. It would be incredibly useful. But, it claims to have problems with my device (Note 3) so I had to refund... Enjoy your 5 stars though, developers! You deserve it for the efforts involved. :)

Simply amazing! This is one of those apps that have no equal. The level of utility that the author has built into this app is simply incredible. I have a full system recovery (Hirens), a secure communications (Tails) and a pen test (Kali Linux) all in my always-with-me device. Small thumb-drives have been known to get seriously banged up being on my keychain, and this has eliminated that issue. With a large enough microSD, a person could carry around an arsenal-of-hackery. Plenty of guides and how-to's on his site.
