Boot Multiple Roms on the HTC Droid DNA with Unofficial MultiROM Port

It seems like XDA Recognized Developer Tassadar‘s MultiROM seems to be quite the popular method for different devices to boot multiple ROMs nowadays, considering that MultiROM was originally developed for only the Nexus 7 and has since been ported over to a number of other phones such as the Sony Xperia M and the Optimus One. And the community doesn’t look like stopping any time soon, as the HTC Droid DNA, a.k.a. HTC Butterfly, has recently received an unofficial MultiROM port.

This comes thanks to the efforts of XDA Senior Member jamiethemorris, making it possible for users of the Droid DNA to run multiple ROMs (not at the same time of course) without the hassle other devices must go through. The installation process comes in three parts:

  1. flashing the provided MultiROM zip through a custom recovery
  2. flash the provided modified recovery through fastboot or with Flashify
  3. install a kernel with the kexec-hardboot patch (currently only supports two kernels with more to be added in the future)

Installation will not wipe or affect the sole, primary ROM you’re using right now. Additionally, you can run ROMs installed on a USB drive, which has to be connected to the phone with an OTG cable. To boot another ROM, you simply choose from those installed on your device or a USB drive from a menu at startup, and you’re good to go.

So if you’re interested in booting multiple roms on your Droid DNA, or would like to find out more, check out the original thread for more information.

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
