Whats MultiROM
Multirom is a ROM manager created by Tasssadar with the ability to load multiple ROMs without the need to remove your older one, giving you the ability to test/run multiple ROMs at once, you can also restore TWRP backup as Secondary ROMs allowing you to look at your backup to choose the right one, or maybe just have 2,3,4,5,6 working OS on your phone... just because it's cool.
Warning!
It _is_ dangerous. This whole thing is basically one giant hack.
I Nuked my SDCard twice in porting this tool over, I'm not entirely sure what caused it, but I reverted few changes which might have been the reason, so I hope it wont happen again.
Still, I'll highly recommend you make backups and keep them on your computer. Always.
I've been using this for 2 weeks now with no serious problems, but just as well, don't be blaming me if anything goes wrong.

keep the "i cant get this to work" messages out of my PM i wont bother replying to them,
as almost anyone on this thread can help you.
you have a problem, read the main OP and if you still cant get it to work... post your problem here...
and be specific... "this is not working" will get you nowhere and no answers.

Special Thanks:
@Tasssadar: For The MultiROM Source.

Requirements:
  • S-off/Unlocked Bootloader
  • Understand How KL Zeus Work*

By Flashing That Kernel, you'd need to flash a 2nd kernel to go along with it..
if you don't follow those instruction, the main ROM wont boot.
To Install MultiROM:
  1. Flash Zeus Boot.img
  2. Flash Multirom-20140831-v28-UNOFFICIAL-endeavoru.zip normally trough recovery.
  3. Reboot
To Uninstall MultiROM:
  1. Flash multirom_uninstaller.zip
  2. Reboot
To Add ROMs:
  1. Reboot Into MultiROM
  2. Boot Into TWRP --> Advanced -- > MultiROM --> Add ROM
To Remove ROMs:
  1. Reboot Into MultiROM
  2. Boot Into TWRP --> Advanced -- > MultiROM --> List ROM --> Select the ROM To Remove --> Delete
To Change Kernels:
  1. Boot TWRP --> Advance --> MultiROM --> List ROMs --> Flash Modules Zip*
  2. List ROMs --> Remove boot.img
  3. List ROMs --> Add boot.img
* The Modules must be flashed 1st, as the boot.img is replaced with each flash.
ToDo:
  1. I'll Update Both My Android & Recovery Flashers For KL Zeus To work with this. but this might be a while :/

It'll be better if i answer this here,

during boot, after flashing MultiROM, MultiROM starts and prompts you to choose what to boot,
Internal (Main ROM), TWRP or other ROMs you installed.

if you want to change kernel of a secondary ROM,
You boot TWRP -->Advance --> MultiROM --> Select ROM --> Remove boot.img
Select ROM --> Add boot.img, then you get to select the kernel you want.

To Flash the Zips/Modules
TWRP -->Advance --> MultiROM --> Select ROM --> Flash Zip

Ill update the OP with these now.

I have a silly question do I have to reflash my current Rom or it will be updated in Boot List Automatically after following above instructions.

The main ROM will remain untouched..
but you'll need to know how KL Zeus works to boot it.

Great! I do not have important data in the internal storage, so I can test it.
