I got only a quick question before I actually try to do this thing myself. HTC phones with Android can be used as classical USB mass storage sticks, so I'm planning to use one as a live Linux USB stick (for gentoo minimal or something so). Question is, before I try to install grub on that and possibly break something, does anyone have such setup working, or are there any caveats I should know?
I have a Motorola droid that I use as a bootable AV disk. Mine acted just fine as a usb stick, however I have seen it not work on other phones. I know that the samsung galaxy S was having problems acting as a mass storage device on windows 7 64 bit, I needed to find a driver for it. However I have not tried booting to the samsung.
