Ok... This finally worked for me but you MUST use CWM 6.* rather than CMW 5.*. If you are on CM9 use its own default recovery and it will work just fine.

Just tried on Beta1 with FF18 - not working here either - never reboots. Tried it multiple times including re-loading beta1 first and rebooting recovery.

I think I might have had the files in /sdcard/multiboot/multiboot - so I can't say for sure it wasn't user error in my case.

I also could not get it to boot with the beta.

What I did to try booting.

Currently running CM10
Mobile Odin to the CWM5 EL29 direct boot
Flashed CM9 beta 1
Flashed FF18.zip from the multiboot folder
Install from sdcard was complete
Did not reboot into temp FF18.

Strange thing. I'm on beta 1 and am unable to use either version of multiboot (el29 or ff18), whereas before I could.

With EL29, I get an error as follows:
-- Installing: /sdcard/multiboot/EL29/boot_EL29.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Installing update...
E:Error in /sdcard/multiboot/EL29/boot_EL29.zip (Status 0)
Installation aborted.
With FF18, it seems to install fine but never reboots. Same problem that others are reporting.

Note that I've used the EL29 method many times in the past with no problems. I tried recopying the multiboot folder from the TAR again just in case it had gotten corrupted, but no success.

After attempting either version, the phone reboots into beta 1 without any problem.

are you using mobile odin (or pc odin) to flash the directbootcwm then rebooting into the flashed cwm before trying to 'boot_EL29.zip'?

If you want to use this temp boot, flash the directbootCWM and then flash the tempff18 rom. Once done with temp rom, reboot back to recovery and just re flash CM9 rom. Do this for now til chris41g can make a quick stand alone kexec kernel.
