I have an image file already on my phone's storage. How do I import it into DriveDroid? If I remember correctly, this used to be possible when I last used DriveDroid some time ago, but I can only find options to download images or to create blank ones. Thanks!

Download the txt file and ensure it's in your /Download (internal storage) folder. Then download the app Termux from google play store, open the app, type su and the app will ask for superuser permission, grant the permission and type sh /sdcard/Download/mountr.txt



Working for me on lake with Android 11.
i tried running this and the terminal returns
Code:
/config/usb_gadget/g1/configs/b.1/f1: no such file or directory
/config/usb_gadget/g1/configs/b.1/f2: no such file or directory
im assuming my kernel is missing something

Edit:
my pc is able to see the blank image i created after running that command despite the errors. however, it shows two portable devices in the device manager. one is the image and the other is my phone. the file explorer lists them as Moto X4 and Moto X4 (E:). this is farther than i've ever gotten with getting drivedroid to work on this device, it works flawlessly on my LG G3

Try typing "cd /" without quotes and then the command again.
output
Code:
rm: /config/usb_gadget/g1/configs/b.1/f1: no such file or directory
rm: /config/usb_gadget/g1/configs/b.1/f2: no such file or directory
ln: cannot create symbolic link from '/config/usb_gadget/g1/functions/mtp.gs0' to '/config/usb_gadget/g1/configs/b.1/f1/mtp.gs0': Operation not permitted

Same output for me After running once, just keep trying again till no errors output (except for the 'rm' ones). works great for me running linux images, i didn't test blank images tho. I have no idea about the 2 devices problem, i had that problem with another device despite the Android Version was compatible(8.1 and 9.0).

On My Android 10 this app works fine if i get an iso file and mount it but it fails to create blank image of whatever size i choose it says formatting failed even if i don't choose it to format. The file size goes to filesize i entered and then it turns to 0B image.
