It is all well and good stating figures, but what does $20 million of crowd funding mean for a company? The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000. This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs. Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
Multiboot in Progress for the Sony Xperia Z1
As we’ve mentioned quite a few times in the past, multiboot is quite the interesting feature. Not only is it cool due to novelty, but it is also useful in case you need or want two separate instances of Android on your device.
In the past, we’ve seen XDA Recognized Developer munjeni bestow the gift of multiboot to devices like the Xperia P, as well as bringing it to the Xperia U, Sola and Go. Now, munjeni is back at work. And this time, his goal is bringing multiboot to the Sony Xperia Z1.
Currently, the multiboot boot menu works, but this is quite far from a plug-and-play affair. Rather, it’s only meant for experienced flashers and tinkerers, as you not only have to create the appropriate partitions, but you also need to update your recovery’s ramdisk, ROM’s ramdisk, and ROM’s updater_script. And once that’s all done manually, you then have to create the appropriate menu entries in the multiboot menu.
As you can tell by reading the above, the procedure is neither quick nor painless. Luckily every step is described in complete detail, but as we mentioned earlier, this is currently for experienced users only. If you feel like you’re up to the task, grab a cup of coffee and head over to the original thread. Multiboot awaits you.
