Thanks in advance.

Yes, a timeout with a configurable default boot is a must also for me.
Hope it will be implemented.

yes GB is compatiable with Multiboot provided you have both GB kernel in Nand + sdcard (virtual rom )

Set 2nd-system as default boot . It should take you to the multiboot list menu

Can you tell me then why am I unable to get it working? I'm on Quarx's latest Defy+ CM7.2 nigtly, installed multiboot 0.5.5 via stable recovery, created VFS with Multiboot Manager and when I boot to recovery (CM9 VFS) I get errors:
E:Can't mount /cache/ Can't open /cache etc.
Tried with both CM9 and DHT-22 kernel - same errors. Few other members reported the same issue. Can someone look into it?

I guess your VFS is corrupted . Please use the fsimages Dont create VFS via multiboot manager and check it again if its causing you the trouble .And also the kernel in VFS should be a GB kernel rom ( since you are using Defy+ build) you should use the kernel-gb-234-451-134-signed.zip , Its GB kernel for CM9 . So you should flash that kernel into virtual rom before you start using CM9 from VFS. If there still are any problem .Follow the tutorial in my link . I think that should clear any problem for you .

No matter which fsimages I use the same error is printed. About this kernel, my phone is Defy with Bayer module and I'm on Defy+ CM7.2 nightly by Quarx (+DHT-22 kernel) are you sure I need to use kernel you mentioned?

well I mentioned that kernel should be for CM9 . albeit not CM7 defy+ ... I m still not sure abt ur setup .. if you are having a problem pm me stating you setup for Nand and virtual system . and how did you proceed .

I am experiencing the same error..
"E:Can't mount /cache/ Can't open /cache etc."

I'm on Green lens froyo.. CM9 (CM7 kernel)

So should i flash the froyo 222 kernel frm http://defy.wdscript.fr/kernel/ ?? N try again??

Hope it doesnt mess the stable CM9..
