Yeah, that works, as long as the host computer has the proper version of Java installed.

So you would need a Doctor for deviceX, a Java installer and the Universal Novacom Installer on a USB stick?

I could maybe see the benefits...

But why are you needing a Doctor away from home so often? I suppose it would be a good toolkit if you were a traveling repair service for others.

I wonder that too. If you're prone to Doctoring for every somewhat nontrivial problem, you're overdoing it. (I did write that piece about why you shouldn't Doctor.)

I was at my inlaws when a hard reset turned into a full reset somehow, I was just showing some photos and had some that were there, but not showing up , and they have no internet . They do have a computer .Yes they live in the hills , 5 miles from town . I do keep a thumb drive of portable apps and got to thinking if this would be possible. I don't doctor it as a rule but I wished I had access to it so to make it a clean reset , even though I could not restore anything without internet . But I saw a comment about wether Doctor would always be available . So it is a thought , but what other tools could be put on a drive to assist in any issues that could pop up ?

I see. It's not really running Doctor from a flash drive, but sneakernetting it.
