Default Multi Boot Menu for Xperia Z1 Compact

Multiboot for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

How its look -> http://i58.tinypic.com/35346bt.png

Quote:
  • How to install boot menu
    • download bootmenu_amami.rar, extract folder "bootmenu" to the your internal storage
    • put boot.img or kernel.elf to the mainrom folder, make sure thats the same kernel like your primary rom (aka main rom)
    • download bootmenu.img from attachment, flash bootmenu.img using fastboot commnd: fastboot flash boot bootmenu.img
Quote:
  • Since your bootmenu folder no contain settings.ini (you runing bootmenu at a first time), settings.ini will be created easily. You need to complete main step aka main rom creation:
    • (mainrom creation)
      • reboot into bootmenu, chose "patch rom package", navigate to the bootmenu folder on your internal storage, navigate to the mainrom folder, select mainrom.zip package (make sure boot.img or kernel.elf is the same like your current main rom kernel, and make sure boot.img is in folder mainrom), select mainrom.zip and click "yes". Main rom will be added into boot menu entry. Now reboot again into boot menu and you will see new menuentry, chose these menu to boot into your primary rom!
    • (other roms creation - you can do only if you completed main rom step)
      • reboot into bootmenu, chose "patch rom package", principe is a bit diferent than main rom step (we have 3 steps):
        • (step 1): make sure seccond rom package is on your external storage ...see this post -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1&postcount=45
        • (step 2): chose rom zip you want to patch, patch them
        • (step 3): reboot again into boot menu (new rom entry will be displayed), select these rom to boot, on led blinking press to boot into cwm, now you are in cwm of these rom, now navigate to the same folder where is your package, you will find zip with appended name "patched.zip", chose these patched zip to install trought these recovery, you are done!
Quote:
  • WARNING:
    there is possibility for your partitions of the main rom to get overwriten if multiboot.sh fail to patch these rom you going to patch, just to let you know! Two click solution is in testing stage so there is probably a lot of bugs! I am not responsible if you lost your private data! So guys if you willing to help, I am waiting. Things need to be improved in multiboot.sh !

Can you not disable CABL and enable taptowake as any and all searching shows them to be kernel related?
