Dual Boot ROMs on the LG GT540

Dual booting is just fun. Being able to show your friends that you can boot into two different ROMs is bragging rights enough. However, dual booting can also be useful. Perhaps one ROM for business, one for pleasure, for example. In any case, when a phone gets the ability to dual boot, it’s worth trying at least once.

For owners of the LG GT540 Optimus, you now have the ability to dual boot ROMs thanks to work by XDA Senior Member Sardonis. Using his method, one ROM is loaded from internal memory, while the other resides on an SD card.

As with most dual booting experiences, the method can be a little complicated. So if you’re thinking of giving this a shot, be sure you back up everything, and pay extra attention to the instructions. For the time being, the selection of bootable secondary ROMs is small, but you can still flash whichever ROM you want as the primary.

For anyone who’s looking to try out some dual booting love, you can find all the download links, the full tutorial, screenshots and a nifty, helpful video in the original thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
