With so many ROMs available on XDA, it’s incredibly difficult to find the one that suits us most. We must choose between modified stock firmwares, AOSP-derived ROMs, or alternate OSes like Ubuntu Touch and Firefox OS. There are solutions to make the choice a bit easier, and one of them is multiboot. XDA Recognized Developer Tassadar‘s MultiROM is the ideal perfect solution for all you folks that can’t decide which ROM should be used as a daily driver.
In the last few weeks we have been seeing MultiROM popping up on various devices, but it’s certainly nice to see its debut on the popular Samsung Galaxy Note II, a device that was released nearly two years ago. Kernel and device tree imp. . . READ ON »

Multiboot, or the ability to select between multiple operating systems on a single device at boot, is an inherently interesting concept. Not only does this allow users to try out new ROMs without losing their data, but it also allows users to keep a particular ROM for one purpose while using other ROMs or even operating systems for something entirely different. We’ve recently covered quite a few multiboot solutions for various devices in the past few weeks, and now we have one more to add to the list, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 i9505.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen quite a few flagship (and former flagship) devices get to enjoy multiboot goodness. And as can be expected, the vast majority of these come in the form of unofficial ports of XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar‘s popular MultiROM multiboot solution. Now, we can add one more notch to MultiROM’s metaphorical belt, as the LG G2 has just been added to the list of (unofficially) compatible devices.
This unofficial MultiROM port comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member patrik.KT, who brought Tasssadar’s multiboot solution to the LG G2. This implementation works on both the D805/6 and D802 models, as well as LGD and JDI panels, but there . . . READ ON »

Android is a beautiful platform, full of surprising and interesting ideas. Without a doubt, one of the coolest projects that has been introduced to the community in recent memory is MultiROM by XDA Recognized Developer Tassadar. This project allows you to boot many various ROMs and even operating systems from the SD Card of your device.
Not so long ago, MultiROM was ported over to the Moto G and its wallet-friendly brother, the Moto E. Those two devices aren’t the only non-Nexus phones that have gotten a working port. There are two new members in the MultiROM family, the OnePlus One and the Sony Xperia Z.
The port for the Sony Xperia Z, which was recently updated to Android 4.4.4, has been mad. . . READ ON »

Just yesterday, we wrote about how XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar‘s MultiROM technology had been ported to the Moto E. As it turns out, the Moto E isn’t the only budget-friendly and critically acclaimed Motorola device to receive a port. The popular Moto G has also received a port, and now it too can enjoy all of the multiboot fun.
This unofficial MultiROM port for the Moto G comes courtesy of XDA Forum Member montamer. And in the roughly half month since its official release, the port has made quite a bit of progress. It works both on standard and GPe devices, WiFi connectivity works in both ROMs, touch selection works, and of course the core multiboot functionality is fine as wel. . . READ ON »

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.

One of the most popular methods of booting multiple ROMs on an Android device we’ve seen in the past few years is through MultiROM, a program originally developed by XDA Recognized Developer Tasssadar for the Nexus 7. With a number of unofficial ports to multiple other devices such as the Sony Xperia M and the HTC Droid DNA, it’s with no surprise that we see another device has followed suit.
This time, an unofficial port arrives to to the HTC One X courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer and Contributor Thunder07. This port allows owners of the One X to load multiple ROMs without with the need to backup, wipe, and restore previous ROMs. It also allows you to restore backups of individual ROMs you’ve . . .
