Concept Summary

Using a modern mobile phone or tablet, it should be possible to boot an entire mobile operating system, user data space, kernel, etc, from an external USG-OTG or SD Card. This would allow users to have a secondary instance of their mobile OS that would be entirely separate from the internal instance stored on the devices internal flash memory. There are numerous reasons and motivations for this which we will document separately.
