DriveDroid 0.6.2 released

Since the first release of DriveDroid (version 0.5) much has changed. This post summarizes the changes from 0.5 till 0.6.2.


A number of new distributions are now available in the downloadlist:

  • Arch Linux
  • Crunchbang
  • Debian
  • Fedora
  • FreeBSD
  • GeeXboX
  • Gentoo
  • Grml
  • OpenSUSE
  • SliTaz
  • Tails
  • Ubuntu

For a recent list of distributions take a look distscraper, which retrieves the different downloadable image-urls.

The downloadlist now also includes logos of the distributions. The logos are retrieved and slightly altered using a script in distscraper.


Support for the different devices has been improved greately by adding support for hosting iso/img files for 5 new devices/ROMs. There were also a lot of different little incompatiblities between the different Android versions, which now show appropriate messages when a particular feature is not supported on the device.

Paid version

Last but not least, there is now a paid (no-ads) version available on the Play Store. No extra features are added to the paid version at the moment, though it always helps development.
