DriveDroid allows you to boot your PC from ISOIMG 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.

• This application uses features of the kernel that may or may not be availablestable 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.

Google Play Reviews

  1. Daniel Brown-avatar

    This application was awesome circa 2016. It worked perfectly and I used it all the time. Now the app doesn't even work on my Pixel 3XL. I'm running rooted Android Pie.

  2. Sam-avatar

    cracked This wonder is simply one of the most useful application I know for my Android phones. Say goodbye to burning CDs/DVDs/USB keys. Saves you time and frustration if you're the curious / experimental type of user. It works perfectly with LineageOS 14, 15 and 16 on a Samsung Galaxy S4 ( SGH-i337m ) It works perfectly with Gingerbread 2.3.5 stock rom on a Motorola XT760. Also works on Linux Mint 19

  3. A Google user-avatar

    0.10.50 Had this app on my old Note 3 and it worked without any problems. Upgraded to an S9 Plus, rooted with Magisk and unable to host any images. The app works, can grant root access, find iso files but cant host them. Checked around for a kernel that supports cd/usb emulation and cannot find any.

  4. sudo skate-avatar

    drivedroid paid version apk this app is an absolute lifesaver, I have edited this review after response from developer. The app is perfect and exactly what I was looking for. I guess since I'm picky I'll request a dark theme for the next update?

  5. ZYX Rhythm-avatar

    drivedroid paid Very good Tool! But it could use some dark/black theme for amoled and people that favors dark themes and like to use their phones on the dark.

  6. Khun Tor-avatar

    download Doesn't work on Pixel OG , stock root,9.0. Gets stuck at hosting Drivedroid image.

  7. A Google user-avatar

    drivedroid paid 0.9.29 apk nothing is premium about this app. If you arent going to update or fix the bugs just remove it

  8. Nicolás Poli-avatar

    free download First app i've ever paid for. kinda got stuck checking root permission for the image folder but worked

  17. Ethan Cottier-avatar

    Love it. No more reformatting memory sticks or SD cards and taking years off their lifespan! Also a great solution to the lack of USB mass storage in newer android phones :) a great feature would be to be able to use 2 ISOs at the same time. For example, one for the live OS, and one for external storage within the live OS. Don't know if that's possible but thought it worth a suggestion.

  18. Tofi Lakhani-avatar

    I've been using this application for a number of years. It comes in handy when i need to do installation and troubleshooting and maintenance, by just booting up boot images. However, on my current LG G5 phone i haven't been able to get it going. The phone is rooted (this app is one of the reasons I root my phones). I spent a good amount of time trying various settings but can't get it to work. Any help from the developer would be appreciated to get me back to DriveDroidian.

  19. Brandon Stephens-avatar

    Brandon Stephens


    This app is awesome. Comes in handy so much. But recently since I switched to Android 7.0 the USB mode keeps getting changed from mass storage. Everytime the phone loses the connection to USB. This makes it very hard to boot properly because I have to manually fix the USB mode before I get to the boot screen. :( I may just downgrade from 7.0 if this problem persists

  20. Farzad Abasi-avatar

    I was away with only my phone and laptop. This app saved me when I had to unexpectedly reformat my laptop without any USB sticks or any other way to reformat. Getting the image to mount was a bit tricky. The sample image worked right away but I had to spend a couple hours to get an Ubuntu image to mount and show up in my laptop's boot options. May be specific to my laptop so I still give this app 5 stars

  21. Shiv Manas-avatar

    Unfortunately, looks like the dev has abandoned this app. :( No updates since November 2015... Edit: Thanks for the reply dev, I wasn't aware there's a beta version available! Would be nice though if you could update the Play Store descriptions so that people are aware of the beta and the fact that you're continuing to work on this app. :)

  22. Jorge Sandoval-avatar

    I was almost F-up the butt there for a bit until I found this app. I just started living with my grandparent because my parents sold the house and to buy a new one's. So everything I would have used to fix the missing boot file in windows was in storage lucky I found this and torrent an IMG recovery iso and now every thing is dandy and don't have to kill my self xp.

  23. Robert Gutjahr-avatar

    Carry all your bootable tools, like partitioning, memtest, linux and windows installers with you on one device. I just wish it was possible to copy files directly from the phone to the new img files (this is relevant for the ps4 update file). My first manual attempts with losetup failed unfortunately too.

  24. Steve Maxfield-avatar

    Works exactly as described. Always used this on my last three Samsung smartphones in combination with cyanogenmod OS with no issues at all. Saved the day countless times now using this utility and can't imagine having a smartphone without this ability.

    Having multiple IT certs involving networking and diagnostics, I have to say this app is baller status and makes me look like I'm legit doing sorcery with my clients machines. It's the bread and butter of the computer trade!!!!

  26. eddie565656-avatar

    Paid version is outdated. but app is still in beta so there might be a good reason for that. Plus, i only paid to support dev. Saved my keister once or twice. Love ya dev man¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  27. Sammy Wang-avatar

    Bought paid version but paid version is 9.29 while my existing version is 10.28?? Edit: My bad, my rom came with beta drive droid, didn't know lol. Thanks for the fast response

  28. FB 2-avatar

    📱➡💻✔ This tool allowed me to run live Linux software on my unbootable computer using just my phone. I was then able to use my computer to burn disks, browse the web, use Gparted, even browse/edit my harddisk which has the corrupted boot files, and much more. I plan on burning a Windows iso soon to repair or reinstall. This is a must need app! 😄 Update: IT WORKED!! I have my PC back!!😂

    One of the only downsides is switching through the setup wizard whether or not to mount as CD or USB. The other downside that is that its incompatible with USBC so make sure to have a C to USB adapter for it to work.

  30. Justin Butler-avatar

    Installed the free version many years ago, and after a couple uses bought the paid. Easily one of the best apps I've ever spent money on, and one of the first installs on new devices. App has truly been a lifesaver! As great as the basic USB type mounting of Linux images is, it's having a kernel that supports booting CD-ROM emulation that makes this app truly amazing, and one of the best tech tools I have at my disposal. You can boot a much wider range of images with it, including Windows images. Thx, dev!

  31. A Google user-avatar

    Honestly I cant begin to thank you enough for this app. Its ones like these that keep people downloading app after crapp looking for that gem. This app has allowed me and continues to allow me dive into my interest into gravitating away from ms and towards Linux based systems I had always been curious about. With your app I could take advantage of the few times I was around WiFi or something like that to the point I was eventually able to barely move out of the clueless stage. Thanks a ton guys !

  32. Ashton Stevens-avatar

    This app has become a small but critical component in my everyday workflow. Never have I ever had it do anything but work (kernel permitting).

  33. A Google user-avatar

    Can't thank the dev enough for such a handy little tool. It's saved my computer on a number of occasions, and payment just felt completely necessary.

  34. Michael Reid-avatar

    The free version is just fine for my usage, however I purchased the paid version to support the developer. This is an indescribably amazing app, and has saved my Bacon many-a-time.

    This piece of app made it possible for me boot into older laptop i had and i had no usb bootable or way to burn distro/windows because my main laptop decided take dirt nap and left me no os until found this app. Thank you!

  36. Anthony Condra-avatar

    I really like this app. The only fix it needs is to beable to resize images on external SD cards. Make that happen and I will pay for it again.

    Theres is a nasty bug on marshmellow which it does is when you download an iso it opens to stock file manager and it completes the download but its not completes. And drivedroid always says aquireing root every single time when i back out any of the menus. I WANT MY MONEY BACK

    Had this working well on my s7 but iv just updated to an s8 running Android 7 when it gets to selecting a usb system the app simply just keeps looping, other devices iv used it on have been great but if you have an s8 wait till it's been updated

  40. Nathan L-avatar

    Returned as I really need it to auto-mount on device startup. Would love it to plugin to automation apps, So location based mounting would be possible. Other triggers could be useful too.

  41. A Google user-avatar

    Please put this on fdroid! And offer bitcoin donations! I don't need the paid version. Just wanted to donate

  42. Jake P-avatar

    The only app on the market (from what I've seen) that does what it does; and well too

  43. A Google user-avatar

    Used to love it on my other older phone not working on my new one. Cannot host the image as unfortunately cannot get refund now as too late. Usb drive and cannot boot from it.

  44. chiraq-avatar

    Thank you for this wonderful app. Completely worth the donation.

  45. Florin Hrib-avatar

    This app could well replace my six flash drives for OS installation. I'd need a bigger SD card, but rooting my phone was worth it just for that. It even worked on my LG P990, which impressed me.

  69. Rob bigfuckyou-avatar

    My hard drive fried and this became my best friend until my replacement HDD gets here it gets the job done and I'll admit a pain to get working but once I figured it out, it was a huge lifesaver for me thank you so much and I'll continue to support you frozencow it is phenomenal

  70. Andrew Lorien-avatar

    Once a laptop crashed when I was on the other side of the world. A laptop without an optical drive. With drivedroid, I formatted the hard disk and installed Linux while I was on a train. The second time I was at work, in the office surrounded by programmers, Windows users, embarrassed to tell them I had broken my boot partition. Fixed it from my phone,without having to ask anyone to download or burn anything for me. Thanks drivedroid.

  71. Dan Miller-avatar

    When you download images through this app, is it done through http? When I downloaded tails,for instance, the checksum value was different than what was listed on the website for tails. Please try and make this app safer to use.

  72. Neil-avatar

    Diagnostic and hacking must have for me. Thank you Softwarebakery, cant wait to see what you cook up next.

  73. Jake S-avatar

    Linux, Windows, OS X, and more. Extremely flexible and replaced the need to carry around my recovery USB entirely.

  74. A Google user-avatar

    Must have for IT troubleshooting

  75. Mike Reed-avatar

    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.

    Bought this in hopes of getting my PC to boot after Windows Logon Black Screen of Death. No images available for such but didn't know that until after I bought it. Dashed hopes.

  77. nate Zimmerman-avatar

    Great app to download Linux distro and more. Booting a pc with your phone has never been easier. Thank you devs for an awesome program. Your work is appreciated! !

    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.

    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!

  80. Edward Blake-avatar

    Computer would not boot and required installation media to run repair to boot sector. Being an idiot I had never downloaded and made a recovery/repair bootable usb drive. Downloaded win 10 64 iso on phone and mounted iso as CD image and booted to repair installation. Saved lots of trouble.

  81. Donovan Lavinder-avatar

    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.)

  82. John Kempf-avatar

    This has replaced a pocket full of utility drives. I don't need/haven't used the resizing option, but the free version saved me so much time and aspirin that I bought the paid version.

  83. sumerixeddu-avatar

    I told ya few days ago that i want my money back becouse the program don't makes what is write in the description. How much time i have to wait for my money? To pay takes 1second to receive your money back you have to make bad description and you have to wait a hole life. GIVE ME MONEY BACK PLEASE!!!!!

  84. Dave Raymond-avatar

    This app is just plain awesome!!! It worked right out of the box and will not only download the Bootable ISO Images to my External SD Card, but it will also boot a PC/Laptop from an image there as well! Awesome!!! Thanks, Dev!!! :-)

  86. Aaron Echols-avatar

    I've been using the free version for about 3 months and it did everything I needed, but since the functionality is really good and the dev is including a lot functionality for free, I springed for the paid version. Well worth it. Thanks for the great app! :)
