I'm trying to create a bootable Ubuntu USB, so that I can boot Ubuntu on my PC. But since I have no other PC left, I'm stuck with just one option. To extract the ISO file directly to the USB using my phone.
I was wondering if this is possible or not. Any ideas on how this would work?

It's possible but not the way you want. Simply extracting the ISO file on USB drive won't make it bootable.
Instead, you can use the app DriveDroid to create the bootable USB. You just need a rooted phone.
