THIS TUTORIAL IS NOT YET FINISHED




Quote:

This will be a tutorial for people who want to Triple Boot on their Nexus 4. I will not explain how to unlock/root or install a newer or older version of TWRP.

The tutorial is based on having an Android ROM as a base. I will be using the PSX rom as main.



Quote:

Step 1: Download the following files for MultiRom support on TWRP:

MultiROM: multirom-20131005-v16-mako.zip
Modified recovery (TWRP 2.6.3.0): TWRP_multirom_mako_20131006.img



Quote:

Step 2; Flash a Kernel that supports the Kexec Hardboot patch. Or of course built your own.

Franco Kernel
Trinity Kernel
Faux Kernel
I will eventually add more



Quote:

Step 3: Installing FirefoxOS

Download the following files:

System (Build September 30)

User Interface (Build October 5) FirefoxOS 1.3

Install the Mako_FFOS-20130930_system.zip as new ROM in the MultiROM interface. When it is installed go to List ROMs.
Then Flash ZIP the Mako_FFOS-20131005_UI_1.3.zip User Interface.

When you reboot your Nexus 4 you will be able to boot into FirefoxOS



Quote:

Step 4: Installing Ubuntu Touch

For Ubuntu Touch to boot you need at least the 9-10-2013 built. This can be found on the Ubuntu website: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...-preinstalled/

You will need the saucy-preinstalled-touch-armhf.zip as a base.
And saucy-preinstalled-touch-armel+mako.zip as the second thing to install.

In MultiROM there is a seperate menu for adding Ubuntu Touch to the MultiROM list. This will take a while.
You will now be able to boot Ubuntu Touch when rebooting the device. Please know that the latest nighly's take a very long time to boot. At least 1,5 minutes.

Here is a Youtube video of it all. I also included a second Android ROM with a different kernel. The Main android ROM has the Franco Kernel and the second one has the NEO kernel.

Just a query, as I'm not well versed in dual booting. Will dual or triple booting cause throttling, heating or performance issues. Oh and also will it provide battery for a day's use, since it's booting three OS?

Not that I have experienced. You will boot each OS seperatly and not at the same time, so it should not cause any hardware issues.

I am trying to help people direct them to the right download links for each operating system. If you want to multiboot the latest stable UbuntuTouch version you will be stuck at the Google logo. Just pointing out the nightlies downloads.

Also I will add pictures to make it easier.

Yes it does. When I first starting using MultiRom I used PA 3.99 too. The only problem is the kernels. If you wish so flash another kernel on a second Android rom you will get graphic problems like you would have with JSS or JWR differences.
