EtchDroid is an open-source application that helps you write images to USB drives, no root required.

You can use it to make a bootable GNU/Linux USB drive when your laptop is dead and you’re in the middle of nowhere.

Features
  • Supports raw disk images and most GNU/Linux distributions ISOs
  • Supports most DMG disk images (beta)
  • No root - everything is done within the bounds of the Android API
  • Free as in freedom

Planned features
  • Write common GNU/Linux distro in streaming from the Internet without storing it on the device
  • Supports most DMG disk images (beta)
  • Support for Windows installation ISO (will likely require root) (update: seems actually quite feasible)
  • Support for macOS installer creation from app/InstallESD.dmg
  • Support for Unetbootin-style image flashing

Downloads
(note: latest version on Play Store is currently v1.0, while on GitHub you can find version v1.1. There's no functionality change between the two, v1.1 is a new build that includes some project structure changes for F-Droid compliance).

Support the project

If you like the app and would like to support the project, you can send me a donation through XDA, or check the website for more options.

Any chance to create a iso repository where we can download the iso files?
Many thanks for your great work

It's a planned feature, I'll work on it as soon as I have some time.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for this tool. It just saved my ass. I somehow ended up with a corrupt linux install on the Chromebook (only PC I had on hand) I use for work, and had to reinstall while in the middle of nowhere South Dakota.

I'll definitely be donating when I have the chance.
