Will my primary rom's Data partition be wiped when adding a secondary ROM?

Thanks!

No your primary data partition will not be wiped, and they can't read data from a other room because the system partition is not shared. But you can seed pictures from other roms because data partition is shared. Please correct me if I am wrong because I am pretty new to this mod myself!

Not right now, but I will probably make flashable ZIPs with stock, unmodified 4.4 once it is out, same as I always make ZIPs with stock Androids for grouper.

Thanks! Just went back to Stock Rom an reinstalled MultiRom to use Firefox OS....now waiting for 4.4, Ubuntu Touch and OmniRom

Thanks for your reply, yes it's OmniRom, so I can't enable adb+apps in dev settings. Any ideas?

OmniRom does not have an effective root method yet. Check out the forum. Some say you can do it after you flash a particular kernel, others say that's a load of bull.

Either way, it's the ROM, not the mod.

That's great news!
For those using previous versions of MultiROM to upgrade to the new version- do we just "download the ZIP file from second post and flash it in recovery"?

Thanks!

Yes, but that's for doing a MultiROM update (for example v16->v16a). What you would need to to is update the recovery (using fastboot or Flashify) to get the auto-injection...

Ok, got it!
So it would be like this:

To get the new recovery utility installed....
From CMD prompt(in ADB-Tools directory):
"fastboot flash recovery TWRP_multirom_flo_20131016.img"



Then I can go ahead and flash the new MiultiROM zip from within the new recovery utility after reboot?

All went well, wanted to go back to stock kernel for a bit to see if that was the problem with the QI charging not working on my 32GB N7.

FWIW- the Franco kernel wasn't preventing the QI charging from working- there was a physical problem w/my N7 which I was able to repair.

Fix SuperSU for secondary ROMs?
Today I recognized the phrase "Fix SuperSU for secondary ROMs" added to thread title, but I've never seen any problem with SuperSU for secondary ROMs in this thread. So what is it exactly?
