call me a little bit realistic, but hardly seems worth any dev working on this when we only really have 3 different based roms ICS + sense/ ICS built on htc framework and Stock GB based roms....

Takes 2 mins to flash a rom......

When in recovery with CWM go to back and restore and back up

It will backup your current ROM as it is. You should do this as common practice before installing new ROMs.

Dual is not for booting different android builds but for booting different os on same phone. This is not a hd2 capable of running multiple os at same time. No need for dual boot for purely android builds flashed to nand partition. If we had an sdcard slot could boot android off nand or sdcard via dual boot. Can't flash 2 different android builds to one nand partition
