USB Mountr
Use your device as a USB flash drive

A helper application to set the Mass Storage Device gadget up in Android kernels

Android kernels still include a USB MSD component in their device gadget nowadays, though it is mostly unused since Android started using MTP. Some OEM ROMs still use it to provide a drivers installation "disc", but it is otherwise useless.

This application leverages the module in order to let you use your device as a standard USB thumbdrive for the purpose of, e.g., booting a distro ISO.
