FAQ

I can't switch back to firstrom! why?
Check root access, check busybox, use SuperSU (Flash it, do not install it from store)
or you open Terminal and type in "echo 1 > /data/media/.rom"

I want to remove 2nd rom. How???!!
Wipe options in romswitcher recovery or in the App

Where are the roms?
/data/media/.2/3/4/5/etc./rom
