Default [MOD]Dual-Boot Roms[New ROM Added][OxygenRC3, PCF v5, more coming after weekend...]

Hi, I'm making a dualboot mod for our poor GT540 So we can change ROM with one click.

Now I'm able to boot from second os from sdcard. Now i have to optimize some things(e.g. installing rom from zip, installing update zips from recovery, ...)

Installing;
1) Creating Partitions;
Open up a partition manager then delete all of your partitions then create new 3. First partition will be fat for sdcard data music, picture etc. Second will be ext2 and will be used for /data partition and third one is for /system partition.
Video tutorial:



2) Download ROM from below(more roms will be added soon!) and place it in your sdcard.

3) Install it like usual rom installing...


ROMS:
Utopia v1:http://d-h.st/bw2
SDSL v2:http://d-h.st/XjS

Wupload deleted the other roms I'll try to upload all of them...

ZIPs:
Gapps:http://d-h.st/HKV
LG_Ime_Keyboard:http://www.wupload.com/file/2629890007/lg_imedual.zip

Credits:
Thank you nutterbg!(For giving me the idea of mounting.)
Thank you Pcfighter!(For making that great rom!)
Thank you Mikegapinski!
Thank you DevSwift!
Thank you Miroslav!

P.S:I think second OS is booting faster but im not sure. I will test it later.

It would seem it fails to provide a shell. Maybe searches for it in the new location, and it's not there? Make sure it's accessible in both places. Otherwise maybe try to mount system so it can use the shell, and then try to remount the new one from sdcard. I don't know...

I moved my all system files to the new partition so there is /system/bin/sh. I'm gonna try the mount the original then the sdcard one now.

Edit:

I did and now i get "- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: I/O error (5) -" what should cause to this?

Edit 2:

Now i can get shell. But not going then. I have to work out...

Ok i made it Now i can boot as normal. I can use it normal. But installing script must be changed. When installing a rom with recovery you must change a line. So this is not ready to use

If Windows mobile can dualboot android using Haret, I believe Android can do something similiar Keep up the good work guy
