Hi

Thanks fot those infos will definitively look into this.

Here is my setup :

I'm runnig under rootbox 4.2 with dorimanx kernel 9.43 which will never be updated anymore
...but it is for the moment still my preferred rom

I would like to test some kitkat roms (pa, c-rom for example) as dual boot

would it be possible to have those two roms in dual boot ?
Which order would be the best, KK as first or the stable one as first ?
Is it also possible to restore a nandroid backup (of the rootbox) as rom or do we need to clean everything and restart both roms from scratch ?

Sorry for those questions. Thanks for the help

edit : hummm ok was a bit lazy this morning ^^ ...should probably find my answers trought the pages of this topic

yes you can dualboot a kitkat rom with a 4.2 jb rom
you dont need to factory reset your current rom..you can keep it as it is
also you can keep any rom as 1st or 2nd (it doesnt matter)

Hi,

So if i folow you right i can start at step 5 ? (assuming i flashed the KK recovery before) and start flashing the 2nd rom
This will leave my actual rom as it is and as 1st rom and give me the possibility to flash whatever rom i want as 2nd ?

5) Flash Dorimanx v10.43.xx Kernel you downloaded earlier
6) Go to advanced in CWM recovery and Reboot Recovery
7) Go to dual boot options in new CWM and select Wipe 2nd ROM data/cache (takes 5-10 minutes)
8) Then select Wipe 2nd ROM dalvik-cache
9) After that Install 2nd ROM from Internal SD card or External SD card and flash the 2nd ROM.
10) Reboot System and Enjoy

Ok i started and i ran into some issues
...impossible to boot the 1st rom (i think this is due to the 10.43 kernel) i get the dorimanx start page and then the phone turns off
second rom is booting fine

Any ideas ?

edit : ok i reflashed my nandroid backup and now i able to boot the first rom again but i went back to 9.43 kernel... Now second rom refuses to boot ^^ (not so dramatic for the moment)

Hi Everyone

I'm currently running SlimKat KK on Dorimanx 10.43 ver. 113.
I would like to try a second ROM which is SlimKat Reborn 4.3.1.

Can I just flash Reborn as the second one or I have to do something like downgrade Dorimanx, flash some patch or some version of Mali driver?

How can I get back to just one ROM? For example if in the future I would like to change kernel for Apolo for my main ROM SlimKat KK. Does nandroid backup will work and will restore backup from today or I would have to do a clean install after everyone wiped?

thank you!

no boot menu
1st ROM - Linaro SaberMod (4.4.4)
2nd ROM - AOSB (4.4.4)
Kernel Dorimanx 10.44RC2
Everything installed correctly, I can switch between ROMs by STweaks but have no boot menu during start.

Will anyone can help me to fix it?
