updater script in rom zip modification

For example you want to install cm11 in multiboot, ok, download an rom, for example download CM11 by FXP or one by Cyanogenmod, open zip, find, open and modify updater-script and change all lines:

1. for system:
Code:
.........."/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system"............
change to:
Code:
.............."/dev/block/loop1"..............
2. for userdata:
Code:
............."/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/userdata"............
change to:
Code:
..........."/dev/block/loop2"................
3. for cache:
Code:
........"/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/cache"..........
change to:
Code:
..........."/dev/block/loop3"...........
4. for boot:
Code:
.........."/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot".........
change to:
Code:
............"/dev/null"...........
Note:
To understand this step. You doing these modifications since you going to install rom to partitions which you created on your internal sdcard! For example: if you not modify ramdisk, your rom will be installed to your phone partitions instead of one created by you! So to install rom to partitions which you have created, you must modify updater script to point installation to install rom into partitions which you created earlier instead of intalling them to regular partition! If you install rom to regular partitions that mean you will overwrite your main rom and bootmenu, so you will boot into cm11 on reboot instead of buting into multiboot! Hope thing clear?
