Hi All,

first up credit to Z for recovery and providing PoC of dualboot images.

I have worked on base image provided by Z and have removed most of the crap or not so necessary stuff keeping following thing in mind.
1) if we want to use 2.1 that's coz of its camera...
2) we need a basic features to be working on Phone.
I am right now testing this slipstreamed bare bone ROM will upload by tomorrow.

you can expect following from this tread

1) Collection of system.ext2 which you can use for various ROM.
2) Basic guide on how we achieved this size reduction.
3) Instructions + scripts on how to do the same in xrec .0.3 also.

Instructions to make it runable on Xrec .0.3

1) chargemon editing

1) open chargemon file
find "/system/bin/charger" line in it

replace the line with below code.

Code:
/system/bin/charger
if [ -e /data/local/tmp/dualboot ]
then
    rm -rf /data/local/tmp/dualboot
    sh /system/kernel/boot.sh
fi
Now your chargemon edit is done

if using adb push do remember ot set the permissions for chargemon again to 04755
i.e. chmod 04755 chargemon

now open the zip file of Z's dualboot..

copy system.ext2 to /system/dualboot/system.ext2
copy data.ext2 to /data/dualboot/data.ext2
copy all files from /system/kernel folder of zip to /system/kernel/ folder
now people here will to the very least post various system.ext2 which you can use as needed.

Once all files are in place you can write a simple gscript for dualbooting.

Code:
touch /data/local/tmp/dualboot
reboot
place this in gscript and add a shortcut on your desktop and you are done with the work.....

hope this helps

hey guys,

i have tried to convert existing ROM backups to working ext2 images... these can be made to work on the proof-of-concept as shown by zdzihu...

basically my aim is to be able to run ANY ROM inside ANY OTHER....



here is the first test release:

dualboot_DooMLoRD_MOD_rdannar_2.1.B.0.1 (for baseband 2.0.xx)


here is the second test release:

dualboot_DooMLoRD_BB67_EWJET_2.1.B.0.1 (for baseband 2.1.xx)

I am really looking forward to this. Untill we get a full working camera/videocamera on 2.2 or 2.3 (i.e comparable with stock 2.1 camera/videocamera) this will be an excellent way to get the full functionality of the camera.

Thanks in advance for all your hard work
