Boot Android Rom’s From SD (Beta)
Thanks to XDA member Punk.Kaos, Eris users can now Multi-boot different Roms without wiping their old Rom or Data.

The recovery modification is not for the average android user and as posted in the thread is still in early beta, if you feel confident then feel free to try it out.
You will need these to have these requirements met to use this method:
- System.img on an Ext3 (recommended) Partition (170MB)
- Data.im on an Ext3 (recommended) Partition, any size
- The files located at the bottom of the post
- A modified init.rc
