Creating menuentry for new rom in multiboot (boot menu) settings.ini

Since you created partitions, since you modified ramdsiks, since you created kernel (sorry I removed post entry related to kernel modification... I will instruct you later!), since you modified rom zip which you want to install... you are ready for flashing! Before flashing rom to partitions, you need to add menu entry in settings.ini of the bootmenu!

How to add new rom entry to boot menu:

For example you created all partitons in .../bootmenu/cm11 folder
For example you have system.ext4, data.ext4, cache.ext.4, initrd.gz (modified cm11 ramdisk), and Zimage-dtb (modified CM11 zImage) in cm11 folder

Ok now you can add menuentry to setting.ini:

Quote:

[rom-1]
menutitle=CM11
kernel=/data/media/0/bootmenu/cm11/zImage-dtb
ramdisk=/data/media/0/bootmenu/cm11/initrd.gz
cmdline=no_need_anymore

You are done! Title you have defined in "menutitle" will be displayed in boot menu!

Now you need to boot into cm11. When you boot into cm11 you will get "timing for recovery boot, led light!", if everything is propertly modified in all of the things you will get lucky to see led light where you need to pres volume button to get into recovery! If you enter into cm11 recovery that mean that you are in sucess , Ok now install your modified rom zip package (in these step cm11 will be installed to partitions which you have created earlier) and you are done! Reboot and enjoy cm11 in multiboot! The same steps is for all roms which you want in multi boot! Max roms is 10!
