Default [Q] Dual-boot Data paths

I have a dual boot now, but I can't use my phone at the moment.
Does each rom has an own data path for apps you installed?

Like, I got real racing 3 (about 2GB) on rom 1.
If I install it on Rom 2 also, will it also download 2GB and store that data on a different place? Or will it use the same place and only install the apk?

Same for whatsapp, can I use whatsapp on both roms with only 1 phone number?
(like 1 account).

If it uses an other path, is there a trick to let rom 2 use the app data path from rom 1?

in case you already downloaded the required files to run Real Racing 3, all you need to do on your 2nd ROM is to just install the .apk file of the game. As for WhatsApp, I don't think you can use one phone number since i once tried it and I got some weird error saying an account with same phone number already exists, but it will probably work on 2 ROMs since maybe the issue was on my side only. I recommend you try and install the app to see whether it might give you a problem or not, but it should work on 2 ROMs with the same account.

Backup your working whatsapp with titanium bu. on the other rom, dl whatsapp from play and restore just data with tb. Works for me.
