MultiROM Ported to the Moto E
Few categories of Android development are as intrinsically interesting as the ability to boot into multiple operating systems. Multiboot, as it’s most commonly known, allows one to do exactly this. The most popular implementation of multiboot that we’ve seen on the Android platform comes in the form of XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar‘s MultiROM. MultiROM has been officially and unofficially ported to a wide variety of devices. Today, one more device has been added to the list, the popular and wallet-friendly Motorola Moto E.
The unofficial MultiROM for the Moto E port comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member percy_g2. As is the case with other implementations, users are able to boot into any Android ROM, as well as other OSes that may eventually be ported to the device.
There are unfortunately a few issues with the modification at present. For starters, touch support does not work yet, so users must use the volume keys to navigate and select OS choices. This, however, will be fixed in an upcoming release. In addition to the lack of touch support, it’s currently unknown if booting from SD card works. Internal has so far been tested successfully, but external may not work as planned.
As always, make sure you have a solid backup before messing with this experimental modification. But if you’re willing to take the risk, head over to the MultiROM for the Moto E thread to get started with your multiboot fun!
