    Droid as External USB Boot device??

    I've barely scratched the surface with trying to do this, and it may seem strange...

    but has anyone been able to do this?

    Plug droid usb into a laptop/desktop and change the bios settings to be able to boot from the SD card?

    I am having trouble getting the timing I think. Have to enable mount, but i think at that point it may be too late.

    If you root it, BB automatically mounts it as soon as its plugged in, not sure if that would help..

    also what are you booting from, you have to have a bootable image
    Got OG on launch day, Got Nexus on launch day. Only Vanilla Android for me!
