Prompt [Q] Bootable Linux Distro on USB with ADB installed

Hello All,

I have a specific question here - I use a program called Sardu to boot into various distros/install windows/troubleshoot PCs. What I would like is to have an ISO of any linux distro (linux mint or DSL comes to mind) that has ADB previously setup and working in a persistence file (very basic linux knowledge here, not sure if it's possible).

Basically I want to be able to choose said linux distro from my bootable USB - launch it any PC i have access too and be able to run ADB commands for the purpose of troubleshooting/rooting of friends/colleagues android devices etc...

If this is at all possible, I am willing to learn the steps needed. I'm not looking for someone to do the work for me (however that would be awesome too :P) but I am out of my depth and would love for this to be possible.

TIA for any and all help,

Josh

Look up how to mount an iso read write.
Then mount the iso and add your adb files.
Then write the iso to usb.
No need to download the whole android sdk or put adb in your path anymore!
Just extract my tool and run the adbClientLaunch script.
