Hi,
I installed the multirom zip ... but the OS is not booting up ... phone warms up ... but no successful boot ... does the first boot after installing multirom zip take a long time ... if so how long does it take ? ...

I tried copying the internal ROM to the secondary and tried booting up ... i got a warning with the path to the log file(log file enclosed)

Left it around 8 mins but no luck ... Internal ROM won't boot up ...
tried the multirom_uninstaller.zip ... but fails with the error 'updater process ended with ERROR: 7' ... the only option is to use power button + Volume down to hard reboot ... go to recovery and restore the previously backed boot partition(i also restore the previously backed up /data parition and delete the multirom folder on the sdcard) ... and the Internal ROM boots up ...

even the uninstaller zip file isn't uninstalling the multirom ... throws up an error.

The only way i can reboot into my ROM is after restoring the previously backed up boot partition(to avoid issues i also restore the previously backed up data partiton) ... rebooting the device after this boots up my device to the stock internal rom ....

Hi,

The above issue seems to have been as a result of the mutlirom(UNIFIED) zip file ... i flashed an older 3T specific zip file and now my device boots up normally ...

But however i am getting 'Error 7' while trying to install a custom ROM Zip file ... Even If i copy the primary to a secondary location and try to boot the newly copied secondary ROM it throws up warning/error and the boot is aborted with the log file that i have attached to the previous post ...

Anybody able to get multirom working on the OP3T running Pie versions and custom roms versions Pie and above ?

appreciate help ...

PS : At least i wanted to get Kali Nethunter up and running ... but that too is getting an error 7 when i attempt to install it on multirom !!!

I am using latest multirom and twrp that you provided in post !! Thank you in Advance !!!!

I see you are a new user. You should read the rules of XDA before posting.

One of them is to read the thread a little bit, usually the last 3-5 pages. If you did, you'd realize that this mod is no longer supported, and hasn't been for quite a while.

Multirom is obsolete, unsupported, and out of date. It doesn't work anymore on any newer software. I think it last worked back in the android M and N days.

Also, you really shouldn't be starting with something like this as one of your first mods or tweaks etc. There's a lot to it and it is much more complicated than simply flashing a Rom and gapps.

Best advice for you would be start fresh, and find the factory reset tool on the OnePlus website to go back to 100% stock software. From there try and flash different recoveries and ROMs

    MultiROM is one-of-a-kind multi-boot mod for Oneplus 3. It can boot any Android ROM as well as other systems like Ubuntu Touch, once they are ported to that device. Besides booting from device's internal memory, MultiROM can boot from USB drive connected to the device via OTG cable. The main part of MultiROM is a boot manager, which appears every time your device starts and lets you choose ROM to boot. You can see how it looks on the left image below and in gallery. ROMs are installed and managed via modified TWRP recovery. You can use standard ZIP files to install secondary Android ROMs and MultiROM even has its own installer system, which can be used to ship other Linux-based systems.

    Features:
    * Multiboot any number of Android ROMs
    * Restore nandroid backup as secondary ROM
    * Boot from USB drive attached via OTG cable

    You can also watch a video which shows it in action.

    Warning!

    It _is_ dangerous. This whole thing is basically one giant hack - none of these systems are made with multibooting in mind. It is no longer messing with data partition or boot sector, but it is possible that something goes wrong and you will have to flash factory images again. Make backups. Always.​

    Installation
    Firstly, there are videos on youtube. If you want, just search for "MultiROM installation" on youtube and watch those, big thanks to all who made them. There is also an awesome article on Linux Journal.

    Note 1: Your device must not be encrypted (hint: if you don't know what it is, then it is encrypted).

    MultiROM has 2 parts you need to install:
    • Modified recovery - You cand download the unified IMG file here, or specific for OP3 from second post and use fastboot or TWRP or Flashify app to flash it.
    • MultiROM - download the unified ZIP file here, or specific for OP3 from second post and flash it in recovery.
    • Go into TWRP MultiRom settings and check "Enable No-KEXEC Workaround"
    Your current rom will not be erased by the installation.
    Download links for specific OP3 version are in the second post.


    WORKAROUND for FCs
    If you get FC's in your secondary, edit build.prop in that secondary's /system dir and set:

    Code:
    #ro.sys.sdcardfs=true

    ...to comment the line (don't delete, don't set to false).

    Don't boot before editing this line (flash secondary, edit and then boot).

    You can edit in your primary if you are rooted, looking into:

    Code:
    /sdcard/multirom/roms/<your_sec_rom>/system/build.prop

    *You can also try using multiromfix.zip, available in this post, thx to @Startrek852 (to disable sdcardfs support in that secondary).



    Adding ROMs
    1. Android
    Go to recovery, select MultiROM -> Add ROM. Select the ROM's zip file and confirm. As for the space, clean installation of stock 6.x after first boot takes 900+mb of space.​

    Using USB drive
    During installation, recovery lets you select install location. Plug in the USB drive, wait a while and press "refresh" so that it shows partitions on the USB drive. You just select the location (extX, NTFS and FAT32 partitions are supported) and proceed with the installation.
    If you wanna use other than default FAT32 partition, just format it in PC. If you don't know how/don't know where to find out how, you probably should not try installing MultiROM.
    If you are installing to NTFS or FAT32 partition, recovery asks you to set image size for all the partitions - this cannot be easilly changed afterward, so choose carefully. FAT32 is limited to maximum of 4095MB per image - it is limitation of the filesystem, I can do nothing about that.
    Installation to USB drives takes a bit longer, because the flash drive is (usually) slower and it needs to create the images, so installation of Ubuntu to 4Gb image on my pretty fast USB drive takes about 20 minutes.
    Enumerating USB drive can take a while in MultiROM menu, so when you press the "USB" button in MultiROM, wait a while (max. 30-45s) until it searches the USB drive. It does it by itself, no need to press something, just wait.​

    Updating/changing ROMs

    1. Primary ROM (Internal)
    • Flash ROM's ZIP file as usual, do factory reset if needed (it won't erase secondary ROMs)
    • Go to MultiROM in recovery and do Inject curr. boot sector.
    2. Secondary Android ROMs
    If you want to change the ROM, delete it and add new one. To update ROM, follow these steps:
    • Go to MultiROM -> List ROMs and select the ROM you want to update.
    • Select "Flash ZIP" and flash ROM's ZIP file.

    The steps were already written but here you have.

    I asume you are running Oxygen os.

    1- Make a backup of all your internal storage (SD) data via usb MTP on PC.
    2- Your device must have the bootloader unlocled, if not, search on xda how to do it. At this step you will need to install adb driver and fastbooot as described on the unlocking tutorial.

    3- Reboot into bootloader and type on CMD on windows "fastboot format userdata"

    4- Install multirom Twrp from fastboot " fastboot flash recovery multiromrecovery.img"

    5- Reboot into twrp and copy all your backed up data via usb mtp to your phone.

    5- Open cmd and type "adb shell chown -R media_rw:media_rw /data/media"

    6- Flash supersu to avoid re-encryption by OOS

    7 - Flash multirom.zip and reboot system. mr menu will appear, select Internal and leave oxegen to fully boot. Go to settings, fingerprint and security and check if it says device decrypted.

    8- Reboot to twrp and Add the secondary rom from multirom menu in the twrp.

    9- In multirom settings activate the option no exec warkarroun, also you can set in autoboot tab the option to boot always the rom you want.

    9- Reboot and enjoy

    I created a flashable zip that could sovle the wrong pin/pattern error occurred after boot in both primary ROM and secondary ROM.

    Flash this zip in recovery (For your secondary ROM, boot in TWRP>multirom>list rom>select your wrong-pin/pattern-ROM>install zip>flash this zip)

    This zip will delete:
    gatekeeper.password.key,
    gatekeeper.pattern.key,
    locksettings.db,
    locksettings.db-shm,
    locksettings.db-wal.

    This will reset your lockscreen to "Slide", but your saved fingerprints will NOT be deleted. Just set a new security lockscreen after boot.
