Boot (Almost) Any PC OS from Your Android Device with DriveDroid
Enhanced uses for the Android system have been a priority for the software developers ever since the OS was first announced and among these solutions there is one that can help users to have a rescue system for the desktop PC in their pocket at all times. DriveDroid has become a highly popular solution for using an Android device for booting various images.
Developer Softwarebakery has launched DriveDroid on the Store since the app was in the first stages of development. Its purpose is to let users boot various OS images in the most popular formats straight from using their Android device. The app is designed to work with USB compatible images stored in ISO/IMG file formats. User interaction is retained to a minimum and everyone should be able to use the app without any problems.
As Linux users are aware, there are distributions out there that go only 200-300 MB in size. DriveDroid is great for having one of these stored onto your device as a backup option in case something goes wrong with the PC system. Still the app will work only on rooted phones where the user only has to use an USB cable to interlink the Android device to the PC. More advanced options, such as for creating partitions in different file formats are also available through the app’s interface. It is available in both a free and paid variant on the Store.
