Hi everyone. Im one of the developers of SwitchMe, and app that allows multiple secure logins into separate installations of android on a single device. The pr is after the break.

I really need a few people to check into some issues people on the original Tab have been experiencing. There are some warnings involved:

- testers must perform a full nandroid backup before using the app, it is not our responsibility if you start getting boot loops

- if you report results or bugs, please use the "Write to us" function in the app whenever possible, and always describe the issue in the header of the logs you send

- if you post here, be sure to include your device type and rom

- if you have apps installed on sd, be sure to mention that as well


--------------------------------------------------------------------

SwitchMe is a unique application for root users that allows you to log in and out of multiple installations of Android just as you would on a desktop computer.

The technology behind SwitchMe saves all of your applications and data, protects it and stores it as a file in memory. You can then log out of an
account and log into a fresh installation of Android or another account with its own unique content.

You may create as many profiles as the memory is capable of holding. Some of these may require very little free memory because they contain few apps,
others will be larger as they contain many applications and lots of cache and data.


Why is this functionality useful?

Privacy - the most obvious benefit is that you can securely share one device among multiple users, which gives you privacy and peace of mind.
Testing - if you are a developer, you can use profiles as clean sandboxes to test your applications and their interaction with the system.
Gaming – with multiple installations of Android on a single device, you can now play online MMOs as different characters.
Speed - the games your kids play slow down your tablet, but with SwitchMe you can easily create profiles without games or instant messengers.
Battery life - when the battery is low but there are important emails or documents to edit later, switch to a profile which only contains these essentials.

These of course are only suggestions - there are plenty of other uses for the functionality SwitchMe offers.

The Lite version allows the creation of two profiles, enough to test on.

Ok, first comment and first try with SwitchMe on Galaxy Tab P1000.

I have created profiles just as usual, then switched to the new one but sounds like SwithMe has not completely copied the whole Samsung ROM, but The TouchWiz part.

After Reboot, switched directlly back to blank profile but without Google registration process, so no Google applications at all, only Samsung applications... All previous settings are kept intact (wifi, display timeout, sounds, ...) except language settings. No Root any more and even though CWM, CF-Root Tweak Manager and SwitchMe are still there, unable to get them work.

No way to switch back to first profile.

Tried to reboot to Recovery, but no Recovery anymore... ^^

Hopefully I can flash another ROM with Odin.

Galaxy Tab P1000, Gingerbread BOJQ3 2.3.6 and JP1 base band.

Isn't working as fine as with ASUS Transformer ICS Android.

Sorry Man, but I haven't installed Superuser, as the ROM was prebuilt with Superuser and CWM, and was working fine since SwitchMe... ^^

No access to the Market as, AGAIN, no Google apps at all, and so no Market !

I just created the profiles as instructed BUT this apps did NOT copied the Samsung ROM correctly... Don't know what happens with Recovery ???

I've spent the whole night to find out a way to flash back my backup.

This is my report and I can't change it and since this is your first report with this device, I guess ???.

Then telling this is a user error, please explain what was my error except being your first beta tester with your app on this device ???

I cant explain anything to you because your description of the issue makes no sense - all i can say is that its not possible for this app to modify the recovery partition. Its physically impossible.

The lack of gapps is probably because they were bot installed in /system. Same with superuser. Check your rom for more info.

Not working on Galaxy tab GT-P1000
Hi,

Exact same problem as Arobase40.

I Installed Switchme, added 2 accounts (one for actual user and a new user). Then rebooted. No more market (and google apps) nor SuperUser. SwitchMe and Cwm complain I didn't give root permission.

Is there a solution or do I have to flash rom with Odin ?

That means there are symlinks to the /system or /data folders where the gapps and superuser are stored. That is the problem - the app does not and will never support these links.
