How to boot from a cell phone

By Recluse Freeman on May 3, 2011

For sure you have a «usual cell phone», that can call, play music from a flash drive, and be a card reader when you attach it to the Big Brother. Or you had it. Or your boy friend/girlfriend/parents/children/grandparents/etc have it. Haven’t you think about using it in a more geek way, rather than just a meaning of communication? I don’t mean firmware modification and getting a console access to the phone, no — it’s much more trite and interesting at the same time.

You will need:

  • Computer
  • Any cell phone with a  USB cabel, flash-card support and a possibility to attach it to computer as a usual USB (it's practically all modern Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Android devices, you name it)
  • Hiren's.BootCD.iso (or other similar boot object)
  • grub4dos
  • Card reader for the memory type that is installed on your phone.
  • A wish to feel yourself a geek :)
