    Back in 2008 I used to boot my laptop from a quite simple Nokia, booting a Retro Puppy 4.**, where the entire point was to be able to run the Puppy Linux in RAM only and the freeing the phone to be replugged, but then in modem mode. Quite handy.

    Since the Linux files probably are to large to be in internal memory, I must assume your software installs to external memory, such as a removable SD.
    I did some test with installing various Linux distros to the external memory of a android phone, gave it boot flag and then treated it with Grub4Dos. Works perfect

    But there is a hatch. You must leave your phone plugged in to run the OS....

    The benefit off adding various distros like Puppy Linux creating a ram disk, is that you can release the source memory of the OS. I think that will work for Slitaz and Tiny Core as well.

    The operating system in the menu does not have the ram disk feature. Its dependent on access to source to run.

    Go for Slitaz, Puppy and Tiny Core and you have freedom to unplug the phone/media, without interrupting the running OS on PC.
