So A While Back I Made A Youtube Video ON DualBooting Any Samsung Vibrent Phone. The Process Worked on all Devices i Tried It My Self
((( I Did Not Make This Process)))

So Like Most i Had To Get My Hands On The S5 For Really No Reason.
As Soon As I Picked It Up Out Of The Box It Went Straight To Rooting

There Arent To Many Good AOSP Roms Out There For The S5 Just Yet But There Are Some Great TouchWiz ...

I Uninstalled It For Now Due To My Dissatisfaction With All AOSP Roms For Now But As Soon As I Find One I Like Im Defenatly Doin This.

I just came from the S4 and used the same process for dual booting. I will try it out now and post my results. I'm assuming you used chenxiaolong's Dual Boot Patcher to patch the AOSP rom?

How did you patch your secondary ROM?

Update

the dev changed a few things recently like the patcher and swticher app are now in one

the only app you need is the patcher

the download links have been changed on my site

the Patcher app will not make the dualboot file if it is on your sd card you would have to transfer to the device first

few aosp roms work with the app but you can still do it manually

Workin on it

im also working on making a video showing that this works but im procrastinating lol sorry

Hey guys, I'm the author of the Galaxy S4 DualBootPatcher app.

I just want to point out that this is currently working purely by chance. ROMs with updater-scripts that refer to the named partitions (eg. "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot") are safe to try, but any ROM that uses the partition numbers directly (eg. "/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/mmcblk0p16") have a chance of bricking the phone irrecoverably because the partition table does not match the Galaxy S4's.

In the next version of the patcher, I will be adding support for the S5 and the Note 3. Until then, I do not recommend dual booting :)

    Hey guys! I'm the developer of the DualBootPatcher app. I'm now subscribed to this thread and will answer your questions the best I can. I don't own the Galaxy S5 though, so it may take me more time to fix bugs than it would for the other devices I have :)

    ---------- Post added at 12:07 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:05 AM ----------

    Right. I managed to Install XtreStolite 2.1 as primary and BlissPop 2.2 as a secondary. Process is straight forward and it works fine. But I can't figure it out how to share apps with both ROMs. In XtreStolite Dual Boot Patcher shows only "share individual applications" and when I click it shows blank page. In BlissPop ROM Dual Boot Patcher shows more options ("Share applikcations" "Share Paid applications" and "Share individual applications") but when i try to select any of this options, nothing is happening. Tickbox is still unticked. I also try to migrate /data using DualBootUtulities-4.0-snapshot1.zip but it says "nothong to migrate. Any ideas please. Cheers

    App sharing (both global and individual) are completely broken right now. I'm currently working on a better way to implement it, but I don't know when I'll finish that (hopefully before the school semester ends).

    OP use chenxiaolong's Dual Boot Patcher from this S4 thread:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2447534
    He didn't mentioned about it. Also Youtube tutorial is for Galaxy S4 and links to download doesn't work. I wouldn't risk trying to do that on S5 it sounds like a BS to me.
