This application requires root

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.

    hey it's very useful app, very minor issue that i faced with Android 9,10 is that if i didn't manually set usb to recognize as File Transfer (instead of "use usb to charge this device", which is the default ) then after the save and exiting the BIOS with linux ISO's (not with your default test iso, which works without problem) the system won't retrieve data from phone, so it dies in Blinking "_" The issue is it's difficult to notice that my phone's setting is causing this mess

    ohne root I used this to boot ubuntu mate, and although it was slow (probably due to my phone or usb itself) it did work, and it did successfully install it onto my SSD. Thanks to the developer who made this, i didn't have a usb at the time.

  3. guest-avatar

    apk Doesn't work with Zenfone 6. Just says "No hosting devices". The accompanying error message is not very clear or useful and doesn't give any path toward debugging or trying different options. There should be clearer explanation of what is required for a device to be supported and what actions a user can take to modify their device so that DriveDroid will work.

  4. guest-avatar

    without root Great app. I've been using it for years. The only downside I've encounter is my phone disgarging when connected to my computer while mounting a image.

    ios Good app. Needs root. Build-in image downloader can't download Monjaro, thelisted version of it is quite outdated, but the app by itself is awesome. Thank you.

  6. guest-avatar

    no root This is undoubtedly one app for Phone or PC that is truly truly like a true friend which may not be around in gud times but surely n always thr in bad or crisis times to help. My PC suddenly wudnt boot and i dint hav a booted usb pendrive. Tried many apps like ISO 2 Usb and Etchdroid to make a bootable OTG pendrive thru phone and to make my phone bootable but nothing worked. Finally decided to root my phone and try this gem and it truly saved my life. Can nly wish fr blessings for d developers

    windows 10 This app works great. I've had some problems with ISOs, but imgs work great!

  8. guest-avatar

    paid apk This App isn't as good as we needed. Cause it is unable to host file larger than 1 GB.

  9. guest-avatar

    alternative DriveDroid 0.9.29 Works great on my LineageOS 15.1 device but the most recent update does not ever complete initial setup. Love the app besides latest version breaking functionality. Pro version purchased! UPDATE: When doing a fresh install of DriveDroid 0.10.50 setup wizard would hang and never work. After installing and setting up with old version, the new version upgrades and bypasses the setup wizard allowing the latest version to function as intended.

    i'm changing my review, because previously i had used a faulty usb cable - coupled with the oddity that my BIOS is very peculiar about how it actually discovers the mounted image, this DOES WORK but it requires a fair bit of patience and experimenting. for anyone reading, i've found the following to work most of the time: choose "cd rom" for .iso images (in particular important for non-linux images), and usb for most other. once mounted, you may need to boot into your bios several times.

  12. guest-avatar

    most Linux distributions missing but it's a really cool app. I would definitely buy it if the Linux packages were there, all but a couple say missing file. manjaro was one for sure missing, the app won't load anymore. it starts up but won't display anything it just has a spinning loading icon. it says it's being granted root, but not working anymore. that's too bad, I used it to boot into mint last night and it was awesome.

  13. guest-avatar

    No, just no. It doesn't work and I rooted my phone again for no reason.

  14. guest-avatar

    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 perectly on my Galaxy S4 (Lineage OS Nougat 7.1) and even on my really old Motorola XT760 which runs on Gingerbread 2.3.5. Works with Linux distros and Windows. I regularly use this app and I'll never go back.

  15. guest-avatar

    Used on all of my previous devices and I rooted my Pixel 2 specifically for this app. Unfortunately it isn't compatible with my device. Google Pixel 2 (Unlocked) Android 9.0 The mass storage will not show up at all on the computer. Thank you, this app works wonders and is much quicker than writing a flash drive.

    Not working galaxy s8 plus, says no hosting devices... Dev options set usb debugging, usb-mtp. Does it just not work on galaxy 7,8 and 9 models. Disappointing. Beta is the same result. What phones does this work for if not any Samsung models? To reply: OK thank you, look forward to suggestions. May help to know I've currently rooted it and don't mind using various kernals if you can recommend ones that may work. Currently on newest stock. Thanks, again.

    Can't Load Writable USB - Help?! When I try and mount an image to the writable usb, it fails and says "DriveDroid failed to change read only state from enabled to disabled. The kernel blocked the request." I have read, write and execution granted to the .img file, and the folder it is contained in. the app has been granted super user permision too, but I can't get it to load. Can someone please let me know what I need to do to get this working?

  18. guest-avatar

    Does NOT work on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (Android 8.0)! It detects magisk root fine, it can see my desired recovery directory on my 200GB MicroSD card, however once it gets to connecting to my computer, it isn't able to detect something. What do I need to do to get it working!? Please and thank you.

  19. guest-avatar

    amazing app. for $2 saved my day when bitlocker locked me out of my windows pc and i could not retrieve my key or able to reset my pc. i didnt have any other pc and usb nearby to get windows or any recovery. so i got this app, transformed my phone storage into a linux usb boot, installed linux, then using it downloaded windows 10 and changed the phone storage to a free usb image, created the windows 10 boot on it using a tool on linux, and then booted into win 10 and installed it!

    It works....when it wants...Ubuntu works fine but other OS not

  21. guest-avatar

    I've used this app for years on my Galaxy S4. Now it is not working on Galaxy S9+ Pie stock rooted with Magisk, no hosting device found. I have hope that the dev will fix this issue. If you need help testing or debugging issues I'd be glad to assist.

  22. guest-avatar

    After a bit of trial and error works perfect on pie lineageOS16 on Mi5s. Config: USB system - standard android automatic USB mode - Mass storage android debugging (without debigging had problems in later stages of boot) note: downloading image from drivedroid repo did not work at the time

  23. guest-avatar

    Thumbs up to Android USB. Myn is OnePlus5T. First read or see tutorials clearly on how to use it and then use the application. I m sure it will be very useful to people. Exactly makes your Android to act USB/pendrive /storage. Tried installing window, linux /img /iso file. works good.

  24. guest-avatar

    using drivedroid i was able to mount blank file made by dd command (by writing zeros to file) and on my computer i was able to format this file and use it as usb to achieve my goals.. , now i can only mount the file and cannot format it using windows or linux!.. this application is so useful please fix this problem , i am using now old version of drivedroid which is 0.9.29 and have no problem with it. i want to use the latest version of drivedroid without problems.

  25. guest-avatar

    Been using drive droid for a long time to speed up my development as I tend to move distros fairly often, but can't find a redibly available flash drive to do so, but have my rooted lineage device available. Also, love the new update. Fits an pie based device pretty well.

    Works as expected, but with windows images you have to flash them into a blank image with the windows media creation tool.

  27. guest-avatar

    Not working.. i can't access the writable.. gets my hopes up for nothing :(

  28. guest-avatar

    Works on my galaxy s8, had to flash nx kernel though for it to work. If you know how to root and install twrp you just have to find a suitable kernel. If not, this app is probably not for you. Blame samsung for it, not developer....

  29. guest-avatar

    Great app. Used it for years. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be working with my new pixel 3 xl. I'm running the stock os and kernel. I'll do whatever I can to help this app. It has saved me so many times.

    This app has been a life-saver for me for the past few years since I've discovered it. The app works perfectly if you know how to use it.

  31. guest-avatar

    DANG!!! I cant believe I haven't seen this before. Time to either 1. Break out the ancient Droid3, or 2. Find out which phones can be rooted now, and get one, since I can't root my current POS. This app looks fricken awesome....

  32. guest-avatar

    just about perfect. the only thing I'd like to see is the ability to store load *img.gzip files directly to save room on my phone. Right now these dont work.

  33. guest-avatar

    A great and very convenient app... I'd never gave any apps i install any remarks or feedbacks. But this is the first app which deserves a gud feedback. Thanks for making this wonderful app. Helped me a lot.

  34. guest-avatar

    Really great tool for those that don't have an USB drive at hand. Working on an Axon 7 from a 256GB Samsung MicroSD. I Installed Windows 10 and many Linux distros.

  35. guest-avatar

    So, the only problem with the app is that you can't use Microsoft Windows images, tho I managed to fix my laptop with the Debian i386 given in the app. Thank you for creating this app!!

  36. guest-avatar

    Says the boot-repair file is missing even though it spent about 15 minutes downloading something. Also doesn't seem to be an option to use my own ISO as many tutorials show in screenshots (I'm using rooted Galaxy S5 running KitKat, maybe it's not possible?).

  37. guest-avatar

    It doesn't work with DriveDroid test file, but successful with other img, so any iso or img file should work regardless. I am using OnePlus6T LineageOS Rooted. Also, software bakery is down.

    Pubudu De Silva


    It works only when I use the droidtest image. None of the images worked I downloaded from the app. Hope you can give me some suggestions. Thanks.

  39. guest-avatar

    Straight up refuses to work on Android Q with my Pixel 3. I get the error "No hosting devices".

  40. guest-avatar

    i cant use this app anymore cause wizard set up asks for image folder by opening recents where theres nothing to select. so i can't set image folder and move to next step anymore. also ther is no skip wizard anymore.

    ROOTED / everytime im trying to create a blank img file it always fail and just give me a file that is just around a few bytes size, this is probably because of my phone but it would be helpful to people if the devs will include some other specs the app need /

  42. guest-avatar

    Using for about 10 years, work on all my phone's with Android.

  43. guest-avatar

    wont work on my laptop, it doesnt want to boot via usb mode but only can boot in cd rom mode, but got stuck in windows 10 installation at driver selection. EDIT : Boi i use wrong step to install , now it's real work, i think i don't need to buy flashdisc anymore to install os 😂. Step : Create blank space, give it a name and 3999mb size, create, from your computer burn iso to the storage with rufus, done :)

    seemed to be working fine until it was time to reboot my PC. my entire OS was gone when rebooted. several attempts for an hour, with nothing to show for it. The worst app I've come across ever.

  45. guest-avatar

    nice. im currently trying to fix my laptop using this, its stuck in bios mode. wish there was a way to reset the app. good instructions.

  46. guest-avatar

    Awesome app! Works fine on my laptop, but on my pc I get a USB malfunction error on Windows. Both are on Windows 10.

  47. guest-avatar

    Not working in htc one m7 stock sense rom on 5.0.2. When selecting storage path it shows location in legacy instead of 0 directory,so i cannot even go on the main screen of the app because it cannot find the storage location

    Doesn't seem to work on my Moto X4. Tried it on the stock ROM and LineageOS 16. I have sent a support email.

    10/10, great job! One quick question: Does this app inject spam apks? Usually when I root device just to use this app, random ads starts to display on device.

  50. guest-avatar

    Why does this stupid app use /dev/sdb as flash drive by default?! My HDD with important data has erased. Thanks a lot

  51. guest-avatar

    "Failed to find image directory", unusable. Was great when it worked.

  52. guest-avatar

    awesome work done by developing this app... very useful for you to instal any operating system without a USB stick...

  53. guest-avatar

    Great and a must-have when it works, but very device specific.

  54. guest-avatar

    Saved my life when my windows failed to boot and don't have usb. Thanks to developer who really made this awsm software. Well never going back to unreliable windows again..😅

  55. guest-avatar

    A short little app with great use. I'm in love with app..Thanks to the developer for creating such a great app..

  56. guest-avatar

    Hasn't been updated in a while. There's various issues that need to be addressed. Tried the paid version, it's worse.

  57. guest-avatar

    At least it says "requires root" clearly in description..... No custom recovery for this phone or I'd be root. Is there not an app with this functionality WITHOUT ROOT?

  58. guest-avatar

    Best app if your device is rooted and you don't have usb use it as usb emulator

  59. guest-avatar

    lets you test various different Linux distros by using your phone as a USB drive to boot IMGs of the Linux distros. many distros are available for download from within the app as well. really cool

  60. guest-avatar

    Revived my pc from death. It was the last hope for me. Thanks I have a question when i install w10 a error comes *a media driver is missing* i think it can not be used for that but for linux distros i am currently on wxp

  61. guest-avatar

    Awesome application. I was able to install Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 from my OnePlus device to my MSI Laptop. My days of making a bootable flash drive are gone. #MagiskPower

    Lack of options to choose a custom ISO file and a bigger list of available OS. You should consider making the app open source so that people can contribute.
