I was wondering if this is now possible and if not when? I think it would be awesome to be able plug in your mobile device into any pc and boot any linux distro. Also from there you could run Virtual Box and boot Windows.

I'm a phone tech and I don't know if what you want to do is possible but webOS is Linix based. This might be a good place to look for more info. www.webos-internals.org...

Perhaps with a distribution that is more cloud-centric, like Jolicloud?
I don't know, just tossing out an idea. If you figure this out, please share.

Jolicloud I recall seeing that on revision3 very clean, simple system would like to see some thing like this on cell phones not a huge fan of the cloud. Though maybe some one could dual boot android and Jolicloud on their phone that would be cool.

Edit: Sorry Missed your post.

You can run Linux from a Flash drive or CD, and if there is a way to use your phone as a Flash drive then that should work.

Here is the Ubuntu websie

See step 3.

FIRST.. YOU DONT UNDERSTAND TECHNICALLY WHAT IS REQUIRED TO OPERATE SOMETHING LIKE A
CELLPHONE, THERE ARE PROVIDER BASED FOLDERS THAT CONTAIN THE NETWORK ACCESS FILES FOR YOUR DEVICE.. IF YOUR BOOTING FROM ANOTHER OS..AND IT EVEN WORKED...THE DEVICE COULD NOT BE USED AS A PHONE BECUASE THE OS COULD NOT ACCESS THE LOCKED FIRMWARE..

SO NO... YOU REALLY CANT....REALISTICALLY


THE BEST YOU CAN DO NOW IS TAKE A WIN SMARTPHONE AND THERE ARE KITCHENS AVAILABLE
TO WIPE THE PHONE, REINSTALL YOUR OWN CUSTOM WIN 6 OS ON IT... IVE BEEN DOING THAT FOR
SEVERAL YEARS WITH MY APACHE 6700 SMARTPHONE ...

MOST CELL PHONES CHIPS ARE DESIGNED FOR THEIR PROPRITARY OS... NO..YOU CANT DO IT..

Why not? You can add external memory to some cell phones.
