This is the old thread:
Please note that the multiboot-feature will be removed if you update your real system.
The virtual systems will stay on the sdcard so just reinstall the mod and you can boot your virtual systems again
v0.8: - addon.d (Multiboot will be kept on ROM-Update) - working reboot recovery inside multiboot-rom(will boot directly into the recovery for that rom) - working reboot into bootmenu inside multiboot-rom - security-fixes - TLS-support - fixed sdcard-problems for NAND-system v0.7: - added integration in touchbootmenu. This is no compatibility-patch - since now multiboot can only be used in combination with touchbootmenu v0.6.1: - fixed some memory-leaks in kernel-module - fixed stupid bug which prevented creating backups on first start v0.6: - new hook-method with kernel-side code which should be the solution to most rom-problems - fixed a bug which prevented mounting cache-partition inside recovery - fixed installer-bug when TouchBootmenu is used on NAND - reboot to recovery/bootmenu does not work for now. will be fixed in future v0.5.5: - support for Stock-roms with Greenbreadmod - added version-file(for updater which comes soon) v0.5.4: - fixed problem with install-script v0.5.3: - support for TWRP recovery - fixed problem with virtual systems with names longer than 9 chars - don't change 2ndBoot-script for bootmenus with 2ndSystem-support - show graphical error-message when error was detected and copy log to "/cache/multiboot/error.log" - experimental support for booting stock-roms v0.5.2: - more configurable(via config-file) - fixed error-detection. On early errors you will get back to bootmenu - fix boot-problems for some roms v0.5.1: - fixed crash of GUI when choosing recovery - fixed bug which prevented creating important images on first boot - virtual systems now are using nand-backups with real data so you could install backups of virtual systems on NAND - installer sets default bootmode to 2nd-boot - added recovery-option for NAND - patch background-image of virtual recovery so you see if you are flashing real or virtual system - reboot system if you click "Go Back" in virtual recovery(until I found a solution for going back to multiboot-GUI) v0.5: - better protection against unwanted changes on real partitions(thanks wizwin) - fix Phone for for GB-kernel(thanks quarx) - set props so apps can detect if phone started with multiboot or not(for future versions of multiboot-manager) - reboot into bootmenu/recovery now works ATTENTION: reboot into recovery will open recovery for REAL system!!! - added GUI for choosing which (virtual) system you want to boot v0.4: - replacing all references to real system with stub-image(will be automatically created at /sdcard/fsimage/stub.img). Now the recovery for the virtual system should be completely abstracted and it shouldn't make any changes to the real system - a PDS-backup will be created and injected because it's needed by android-system and above change removes the reference v0.3/v0.3.1: - moving original system-partition to another location instead of lazy unmount so she will be accessible in 2ndBoot-system and will not be busy - fixed recovery to improve installer-zip compatibility. MIUI works now - internal script-changes v0.2: - "Install zip from SDcard" works now - changed hook-method so it works with more ROM's(including ICS) v0.1: First release
1. Download zip-file and copy to sdcard
2. create 3 filesystem-images in ext3-format and copy them to /sdcard/multiboot/NAME with the names system.img, data.img and cache.img.
Please replace NAME with the folder-name of your virtual system(you have to create this)
You can download ready-to-use images from here:
2. install zip-file in CWM
- The menu-entry "Lastest Recovery" is no longer supported and will affect your real system!
- boot the System-Chooser with the 2ndBoot-option in bootmenu
- Data-Wipe deletes android_secure
Developing Multiboot makes much fun and I really like the results but takes much time, so feel free to donate a beer.
