    I am working on making Android x86 available to the masses. Specifically PhoenixOS. The Official release is contained within a Window executable: http://www.phoenixos.com/en/download
    I am not looking to replicate this, however. I have made a rooted .iso of the newest version v1.0.9. I have tried many tools in an attempt to boot and then optionally install from a USB stick. I have had limited success in this endeavor. I have found one that works great. Unfortunately, it is the tool offered by RemixOS. The competition.

    I have found that the Remix USB installation tool is based on the source code for Unetbootin:
    https://github.com/JideTechnology/remixos-usb-tool

    Tha only thing I think I would need to change is the RemixOS nomenclature which is present everywhere, it even renames the USB Drive. Is this ethically possible? Possible at all?
    There is a sort of Open source, Closed source aspect here that I am having a difficult time understanding.
    Could anybody shed some light? I'm itching to get this out.
    Thanks.

    What license is it released under? GPL 2/3, or one of the many other 'open source/permissive' licenses or is it some proprietary license?

    If it's GPL, then as long as you release your version under the same GPL license, you *should* be OK, but PLEASE read and understand the license terms so you know exactly what you can and cannot legally do.

    Thanks for the reply. I actually ended up finding Rufus. It does a remarkable job. You can check out my link in my signature if you'd like. We will soon be opening a sub-forum.
