Enable Multi-Boot on the Xperia U, SOLA, GO

We’ve featured multi-boot methods for various devices in the past. If for no other reason, having multi-boot is just plain cool because it allows you to try various ROMs without having to lose your current installation.

Now thanks to XDA Recognized Developer munjeni‘s app Multi Boot Manager, you can accomplish this relatively easily on the Xperia U, SOLA, and Go. And thanks to Senior Member NoobCoder, there is now an easy guide for using munjeni’s creation. The guide, which is available in our newly created Sony Cross-Device Development Forum, shows you how to get multi-boot up and running on your own device.

Munjeni’s Multi Boot Manager app uses kexec and a compatible kernel to allow you to choose between ROMs. The guide covers how to configure Multi Boot Manager, extract the required images, partition your SD card, and how to get the ROMs ready to be loaded.

To get Multi Boot Manager for your self, head over to munjeni’s tool thread. And once you have the tool and wish to get started, be sure to visit NoobCoder’s guide thread.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
