Default [Q] Dual Boot

Does anyone know if any similar devices like the notion ink adam are capabile of dual booting? It would solve all sorts of problems. Because instead of having to pick a rom and do with out dual core support (froyo) or without hardware acceleration (honeycomb and gingerbread) we could conviently switch. In a perfect world I suppose. I'd pay to have someone figure it out.

Use at your own risk. Bootmanager has been know to brick some gTablets. I personally wouldn't try it.

Agree. My understanding and experience was that it just doesn't handle HC ROMS well.

sorry to bring an old thread back from the dead, but I am curious if anyone has tried bootmanager recently? Dual boot would be nice, but don't want to try if it is still bricking gtabs...

if you want a tablet that dual boots...get a nook color, it's fun and easy and thanks to the people here at XDA it's able to dual or even triple boot.

they have hacked the hell out of that thing, but I already have a gtab. It looks like the boot manager app has a lot fail safes in it now, in which I think it would be pretty hard to brick. I might give it a go...

It was meant as an FYI, given that a) aabbondanza, above, has reported that boot manager can brick the gTablet and b) the VS gTablet is not an officially supported device.

BTW, how did the boot manager experiment go?
