for the multi-boot part you only need to change the NativeSD to ICS in the switch script.

but I don't know how can you enter CWM and install the ROM?

All roms will be installed to a separate folder on your EXT partition so you can safely use your EXT for any NAND a2sd script you like... they are doing fine together ..

Also we don't want to mess with current general setups which maybe use the 3rd partition as swap..

Securecrt even made it possible to share the app folder on the root folder of your EXT partition with different EXT Roms... but I left it out on purpose for the 1st release.

Oh, not for WP7 dual booters? Sad story Are we going to be supported in future? Or... well, I can see a workaround (make ext partition -> install CWM -> install ROM -> make backups of partitions -> install WP7 -> restore backups with WP7 space), but that would mean so much time used just for this, especially for people with WP7 already.

What about EXT partition images with ROM just installed, so we could just insert them? Would that work?

Just noticed that, wasn't expecting considerations for other builds to be made from the very start, personally if i can't get nand android to run properly again i might try Win7.* now that we have this.

Edit. Have also just seen that we now have rich notifications fully working(?) - ( On other roms i only seen them with system apps (phone, text etc)) Download tunein radio to see what I mean, have had the notifications from it on my tab for a while now, so it's not due to an update.

I never use WP7 on my HD2 for now I hope some one can tell me how the WP7 use the SDCARD.

Seems very nice, I would really like to try it. I've been using ph03n!x's solution from the start but found that sometimes system becomes a bit unresponsive (my guess is multiple read writes), so really looking forward to trying this one.
@ Xylo Any chance of uploading JB_PA build? Or is initrd.gz same for both?

seconds; max 2 minutes (?), there isn't any data file to build or anything, first boot shouldn't take long

WP7 encrypts the sd card and uses it for operating system space as well as for storing data. Most HD2 WP7 ROMs allow the first 200Mb of space on sd to be used as FAT storage, which can be resized. They also use the last 24Mb nand space in magldr menu.
PPL dual booting either partition the sd card with the enlarged FAT partition (primary) or (as I do) use a separate card for WP7.

I am trying to see if i can port this ATM...
It boots with original initrd.gz.....Now to see where it is running from

Nope he would miss out on important permission and symlink settings which will likely make the ROM unbootable..

Guys, not so sad.. it's a 1st release and a work in progress.. I am sure we'll eventually find a way for all users to make use of it..

Next step I will work on is compatibility for haret and cLK users..

Not to long... You also had issues with Phoenix EXT method didn't you ?
Maybe the mount ext partition delay needs to be increased for some users... Don't know..
