Default [EXPERIMENTAL][PORT][RECOVERY][MULTIBOOT]Tassadar's MultiROM v11 for the Optimus V

Okay, this is up now for you brave people to test!
Here's the original thread.
[EXPERIMENTAL] MultiROM v11 (Touchscreen support) - Boot ROM from sdcard

All the important info and how-to-use instructions are in the first two posts of that thread.
If you like it, please go there and click on thanks for Tassadar.

I've given it over a week of testing between v10 and v11 and haven't found a single glitch myself.
So, here you go!
The ported recovery has a kernel compatible with either novatek or hitachi screens, if you're wondering
CWM-based MultiROM recovery for the Optimus V (flashable zip)
md5sum: 3113af2b52db9532717ab8d38e82e6e8

MultiRom v11 for the Optimus V
md5sum: 3f3523ffe17158d3ff5b8e3b662c76bf

I'll post more info later (I'm short on time but said I'd get this uploaded today.)
all you really need to know to make it work is in the original thread. Just use these Optimus V files instead of the ones in Tasssadar's post.

I'll edit this and the second post later with more specific instructions.

FYI: This is not a ROM. This is a recovery, and flashable overlay for your boot.img which allow booting from roms on sd-ext or from internal memory.

Please read the original thread before using.

More later! Enjoy.

Oh, yeah.
Standard disclaimer: Flashing your phone may cause bricking.
Don't blame me, or Tasssadar... Just take proper precautions. As the original thread says, BACKUP! Also, never flash a ROM and recovery at the same time, make sure the first works before you flash the second.

extra info:

you can't mix froyo and gingerbread ROMS unless you flash a Xionia or Xionia Redux anykernel over your boot.img first.
The multiROM uses the boot.img kernel for all the installed ROMs, and most kernels are made for either froyo or gingerbread but not both. Xionia kernels are the only exception to that rule I'm aware of.

I'll link to the xionia kernels later, for now it's just a short warning.

Thanks alot for porting this over to the OV! I'm going to test it out as soon as I have an hour or two. Should make things easier when debugging new builds.

unfortunately I'm even wordier than Tasssadar, so when i eventually get time to rewrite the directions and add them to post 2, they probably won't be much more user-friendly.

and it may be a couple days until screenshots and directions show up.

mostly i just wanted the thing up for others to play around with.

True having it up is most important I'll try it sometime today and possibly try making a noob friendly guide if I have some time.
