What is needed to dual boot a device? Some devices like the Samsung galaxy Plus have this feature. Can this work on S3 mini too? Couldn't we install the second ROM not in the root folder but in another folder and then to run it by symlinking the folder just like foldermount does?
Sorry if my questions are considered silly by some...

Not possible for us, for now. Do a little research on xda & you'll find your answer. This has been asked more than once here

This one cannot be applied to our phone

First, our partitions point to different devices.

Second, there is not enough space as described in tutorial for all mount points (/system /data /cache)
/system in our case needs minimum 500MB with only UltraSlim_Gapps package installed
/data can be enough only for few apps
/cache on our device have 840MB, 80MB from tutorial isn't enough
