Multi-Boot Now Available on the Droid RAZR
Not long ago we brought you news about the Multi Boot Manager for the Motorola Defy, which gave users the opportunity to boot multiple iterations of Android on their devices. There are other, similar boot managers out there that allow many other devices to do virtually the same thing. Now the same can be said for the Motorola Droid RAZR.
XDA Senior Member [TSON] has brought the Boot Manager application over to the Droid RAZR for users to take full advantage of booting multiple ROMs. The only thing holding anyone back is SD card space. For the free version, unfortunately, users are restricted to only two ROMs, but dual booting is better than single booting.
Users need to be rooted with a custom recovery and on a 2nd-init main ROM. Also, the ROMs they flash must have the same radio and kernels. Other than that, users can flash whatever two ROMs they want with Boot Manager and still take advantage of a nice list of features including:
We have a beautiful UI
A nearly completely fail-safe system implemented
Boot Manager can automatically sync your SMS and your call logs as well.
Included in the thread are also some pro troubleshooting tips and even an altered version of GAPPS that work within the boot manager installation system. Everything is wrapped up in a nice, neat little bow—much like Christmas.
Check out the development thread for additional details, download links to everything you need, the troubleshooting tips, and instructions on use.

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
