I'm pretty sure the answer is no. Only thing you can do would be to switch between your nandroid backups

I have multirom installed on my nexus 7 and have 4 roms running. Not sure if multirom can be ported to s3.

While I am sure it can be done Orbison really no different then keeping a few nandroid backups of other roms and restoring them. Not the wisest idea but fun at times

Not exactly called multirom. what im talking about is safestrap for the droid 3. yeah backing up and restoring nandroid might be the same but this is alot faster and more convenient. I wish I new how to develop lol

Start by porting another carriers ROM for fun. Not a whole lot of steps but its a nice sense of accomplishment

boot manager doesn't work apparently. found a tutorial on how to dual bot stock with cyan mod. it says to install siyahs kernel. would i brick my phone if i experimented with other ones to? and what would the steps be to port safestrap to s3? I know I would have to get the developers permission and stuff if i wanted to attempt doing so. its basically a whole new bootloader I think lol.
