I havent had any experience with dual boot or anything similar to this. So do I understand this correctly both custom and stock roms will have to be running at the same time, I know this was kind of asked a couple posts ago but just wanted more clarification? If so will this cause any noticible lag or reduction in performance?

They will both exist on your device, but you will be able to choose which one loads. There is no lag from this at all.

For now, my focus is getting a custom recovery to allow for custom ROMs.

If OTG isn't setup in the stock kernel, then I'd have to work on a kexec kernel loaded during the boot. But that's very involved.

Will this work with the KindleFire2 when done?

The backup/restore process doesn't work for the KindleFire2. It saves the system.img as the same size as a KF HD.

If you're referring to the backup.sh script posted by kinfauns, I think you may be mistaken. The script reads each partition bit by bit, creates a disk image (.img) based on that information and compresses it using gzip. Whatever it's saved as is relative to the size of those partitions.

I don't want to hijack this thread anymore than I already have, so if you want, you can PM me and I'll see if I can't help you find the root of the problem.
