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. This Recovery hack works by looking for certain files on the SD card to boot from instead of looking in the Internal memory. This method is only in development for the Eris, but could possibly be developed for other devices in the future.

It has been tested on the following Eris Roms:

  • KaosFroyo
  • KaosLegendary
  • CELBFroyo
  • MR4
  • PlaneJane

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:

  1. Amon-RA-v1.6.2
  2. System.img on an Ext3 (recommended) Partition (170MB)
  3. Data.im on an Ext3 (recommended) Partition, any size
  4. The files located at the bottom of the post
  5. A modified init.rc

Good luck!

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...

Which Manufacturer (And Device) Made You Choose Android?

The beautiful thing about Android is that there is so much to choose from. There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?
