It is fairly true that there are tons of tools and software available to create a bootable installation media for Windows as well as Linux operating systems. PowerISO, UltraISO, AnyBurn, Nero Burning ROM, Rufus are some popular media creation tools and software to create a bootable USB or DVDs. Though some of them are free (open source) and some are premium to create an installation media to reinstall Windows and Linux as well.
Moreover, our modern operating systems have built-in and powerful media creation options, but technically speaking, they are not so easy to use to create a bootable installation media.
The traditional ways to reinstall the operating system with CDs and DVDs seem out of fashion now, which are full of a headache to burn and also need an additional CD/DVD drive hardware. USB drives are in full swing to reinstall corrupted, virus-infected or laggy operating systems in a hassle-free way.
But creating a bootable USB on Android is a much faster and more secure way than other conventional methods in case you don’t have your own computer. For this, there are some apps available on Google Play Store which allow you to create a bootable USB drive in a few minutes. However, ISO 2 USB is one of them, which is the best and it does not require root permission to create a bootable installation media drive.
The ISO 2 USB is free to download but it is supported by ads. This application is very straightforward to use and the ads aren’t interrupting while interacting with it.
