Introduction

MultiROM is one-of-a-kind multi-boot mod for Htc One (m7). It can boot any Android ROM as well as other systems like Ubuntu Touch, Plasma Active, Bohdi Linux or WebOS port. 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, daily prebuilt image files to install Ubuntu Touch 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
* Use for example Ubuntu Touch or Desktop alongside with Android, without the need of device formatting
* Boot from USB drive attached via OTG cable




Warning!

It _is_ dangerous. This whole thing is basically one giant hack - none of these systems are made with multibooting in mind. It is messing with boot sector and data partition. 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
1. Via MultiROM Manager app
This is the easiest way to install everything MultiROM needs. Install the app and select MultiROM and recovery on the Install/Update card. If the Status card says Kernel: doesn't have kexec-hardboot patch! in red letters, you have to install also patched kernel - either select one on the Install/Update card or get some 3rd-party kernel here on XDA. You are chosing kernel for your primary ROM, not any of your (future) secondary ROMs, so select the version accordingly.
Press "Install" on the Install/Update card to start the installation.

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

MultiROM has 3 parts you need to install:

  • MultiROM (multirom-YYYYMMDD-vXX-UNOFFICIAL-m7.zip) - download the ZIP file from second post and flash it in recovery.
  • Modified recovery (TWRP_multirom_m7_YYYYMMDD.img) - download the IMG file from second post and use
    "fastboot flash recovery TWRP-multirom-20150619-v32e-UNOFFICIAL-m7univ.img"
  • Patched kernel - You can use either one of the stock ones in second post or third-party kernels which include the patch, you can see list in the second post. Download the ZIP file and flash it in recovery.
You current rom will not be erased by the installation.
Download links are in the second post.



Adding ROMs

1. Android
Go to recovery, select Advanced -> MultiROM -> Add ROM. Select the ROM's zip file and confirm. As for the space, clean installation of stock 4.2 after first boot (with dalvik cache generated and connected to google account) takes 676mb of space.​

2. Ubuntu Touch this is NOT SUPPORTED AS MOST OTHER PORTS, IF YOU CARE TO ADD SUPPORT, PLEASE DO SO. THANK YOU
Use the MultiROM Manager app to install Ubuntu Touch.

Ubuntu Touch is in development - MultiROM will have to be updated to keep up with future changes in Ubuntu, so there's a good chance this method stops working after a while and I'll have to fix it.


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 Advanced -> 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 Advanced -> MultiROM -> List ROMs and select the ROM you want to update.
  • Select "Flash ZIP" and flash ROM's ZIP file.
  • In some cases, you might need to flash patched kernel - get coresponding patched kernel version from second post and flash it to the secondary ROM sama way you flashed ROM's ZIP file.



Explanation of recovery menus

Main menu
- Add ROM - add ROM to boot
- List ROMs - list installed ROMs and manage them
- Inject boot.img file - When you download for example kernel, which is distrubuted as whole boot.img (eg. franco kernel), you have to use this option on it, otherwise you would lose MultiROM.
- Inject curr. boot sector - Use this option if MultiROM does not show up on boot, for example after kernel installation.
- Settings - well, settings.

Manage ROM
- Rename, delete - I believe these are obvious
- Flash ZIP (only Android ROMs) - flash ZIP to the ROM, for example gapps
- Add/replace boot.img - replaces boot.img used by this ROM, this is more like developer option.
- Re-patch init - this is available only for ubuntu. Use it when ubuntu cannot find root partition, ie. after apt-get upgrade which changed the init script.​

Current Test Builds

All Current Test Builds can be found on androidfilehost under MultiROM TEST BUILDS

You should be using these, not the ones mentioned below!

Definition of Test Builds: These are stable builds which I have and am using (and testing). They contain the most up to date fixes as mentioned in the changelog under <tba>.
  • The main reason I'm calling them "Test Builds", is because they have not gone through extensive testing as what I would usually do for a "release version". I think most people would call them release versions, but I tend to be more conservative.
    .
  • The second reason, they get uploaded to AFH instead of directly here, is two fold:
    1. I'm maintaining the M7, M8, M9 and HTC 10 MultiROM versions, and uploading to AFH is easier and faster for me.
    2. Updating the actual threads and posts, is too time consuming every time I want to push an update.

Changelog and NO_KEXEC 4.1 Information can be found in the HTC 10 MultiROM thread.



1. Main downloads

MultiROM Main ZIP: multirom-20160409-v33b-UNOFFICIAL-m7univ.zip
MD5: 115172f7823ef1b93126aa845b7bd3fa

Modified recovery (based on TWRP): TWRP_3.0.2-0_multirom_m7univ_20160409-03.img
MD5: 2ba0c67c2ec1522b278a3996b5b4e814


MultiROM Manager Android app: Google Play or link to APK


You need to have kernel with kexec-hardboot patch only in your primary ROM!
Or you can use the no-kexec workaround v2


AndroidFileHost (mirror & old versions): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=33970

2. third-party kernels with kexec-hardboot patch

You need a kernel that supports kexec-hardboot in the primary ROM.
Note that although MultiROM, it's recovery, and app are HTC One M7 universal build - they support M7_U/UL (GSM), M7_WLS (Sprint) and M7_WLV) - you need to make sure the kernel you choose/select is for your particular device!!

Some examples for M7_U/UL kernels:
ElementalX - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2249774
teaMSeven - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2307371
Make sure to flash the proper version for your Android and HTC Sense or GPE version.

More kernels here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-one/#kernels
Make sure the the features of your kernel include "kexec-hardboot (for multirom support)"

3. Uninstaller

MultiROM uninstaller: multirom_uninstaller-20160409-v33b-UNOFFICIAL-m7univ.zip
Flash this ZIP file to remove MultiROM from your device. It will erase all secondary ROMs. If you don't want MultiROM menus in recovery, re-flash clean TWRP, but it is not needed - those menus don't do anything if MultiROM is not installed.

FAQ and other notes

HTC One M7 - Peculiarities / Bugs
  • You need to be on hboot 1.57 or higher for MultiROM menu to show up at boot time... otherwise it will always boot to primary
    .
  • A few notes about F2FS support: yes the TWRP recovery and MultiROM now do support F2FS, however for that to work "properly" you need a kernel that supports both F2FS and kexec-hardboot in the primary slot and secondary slots
    So let's say you formatted your data partition to f2fs, a kernel in primary such as ElementalX (which doesn't support f2fs) won't work (neither in primary nor secondary) and wouldn't even show the boot menu; and a kernel (such as included in CM12.1) that does support f2fs would show the boot menu, but has no kexec-hardboot support, so you won't be able to boot any secondary ROM.
    Also, even if you have a kernel that supports both f2fs and kexec-hardboot, remember that it will break any ROM/kernel that don't support f2fs.
    Basically, I recommend sticking with ext4
    .
  • A few notes about enabled adb in MultiROM boot menu: later, in the meantime, I still recommend having that disabled.
    .
  • A few notes about the sha1 checks in the installer-script: also later.
    .

Something not working, or you need help debugging

Please provide the following information:
  1. a detailed explanation of the problem
    .
  2. the recovery.log (found in /tmp/recovery.log or by copying it to the sdcard and then copying it to PC)
    .
  3. the link to the thread and name of file (+ which version) you are having problems with
    .
  4. due to the large size of some of these ROMs, I may not have time to download and test them, so please also upload the updater-script (found in ROM.ZIP under /META-INF/com/google/android/)


Device encryption
Since v32, MultiROM supports encryption on this device (it has to be added for each device separately). It works only with Android-based secondary ROMs and the secondary ROMs don't know the device is encrypted, so they would allow you to encrypt the device again - do not do that. If you're using password, pin or pattern for the encryption, MultiROM will ask you for the password on boot. If you're booting the primary ROM, then Android will ask you for the password _again_ - unfortunately, there is no way for me to pass the "unencrypted" status to Android. If you're booting secondary ROM, MultiROM will ask you for the password again after the reboot - that's because I have to unencrypt the /data partition after the ROM's kernel is loaded.

I could omit the second password prompt when booting secondary ROM by temporarily saving the password somewhere, but that's obviously unsafe. So is using encryption with unlocked device though, so I might add this later.​
About security
In order to make multi-booting possible, MultiROM has to sacrifice some security measures. Firstly, on secondary Android ROMs, /system is not mounted read-only. While there are other things preventing malicious software from messing with /system, this might potentialy make it easier for such software to attack that system.​

What do the ROMs share?
All ROMs are separate, except /sdcard, which is shared between all Android ROMs.​

How many ROMs can I have?/Where are the ROMs stored?
You can have as many ROMs as you can fit in your /sdcard. All the ROMs are stored in /sdcard/multirom/roms or on an USB drive. This folder is unaccessible in Android, to prevent mediascanner from scanning it. You can either in recovery, or obtain root and go to /data/media/0/multirom/roms.

The menu with all the ROMs won't show up during boot, how to fix it?
Either re-flash the MultiROM zip or go to recovery, Advanced -> MultiROM -> Inject curr. boot sector.

The reason for this is that something rewrote your boot.img, which happens for example when you flash a kernel. MultiROM's boot menu is part of the boot image, so it has to be added into it again.

Wreat work
V32 Working in my m7

Enviado desde mi One mediante Tapatalk

:D

well the previous (dirty) version (that's why i needed to recompile to "e" so as not to cause confusion) has been out for a while, but I guess a new thread does help :laugh:

enjoy, and lemme know if all works well

.... in theory this should also work for Verizon and Sprint users, but I cant test that, since I only have GSM

and for me, the bugs are (always have been)
1- USB OTG doesnt work
2- MTP has to be toggled (on->off->on) for it to work

Got this error message?
If so flash the new recovery first then try again.

yes, sorry, i'll check into it more thoroughly tomorrow (1:25am for me) and it's just the installer script making sure what you are flashing is meant for your device

oh, you just wanna give me a hard time for opening a new thread..... i knew it :crying::rolleyes::eek::eek::p

Not at all.
Hopefully you'll get some new users to multirom. Old threads got very confusing for newcomers I think.
Just wanted others to know the solution before reporting it doesn't work.

Also to be clear we don't need the contexts fix anymore? I.e. Just flash Rom, gapps and boot.

nope,

file context fix no longer needed, was added here

layout_version fix (pull request) and (dirty) by-name support for the M7 was added here

only thing i'm aware of it that you'll need at least firmware 6.xx.xxx.x /hboot 1.57or higher
(from domiq's thread)

that will go into post 3, when i'm awake-ish :)

Tested OTG out pretty extensively. Although it wil not mount under the mounts menu, it is at least partially mounting it. I can get it to show up in add rom list. I can also get the multirom folder to be created on the usb disk. Install starts, but fails the instant that it attempts to create the data.img. However, after failure, it will show up in rom list on the usb stick. So, at least it has write ability to the usb. Just a bug somewhere now preventing a complete install.

ADDL: The new update gets a bit further. Just getting an error mounging mmcblk0p33 during the data.img deployment.

    Introduction

    MultiROM is one-of-a-kind multi-boot mod for Htc One (m7). It can boot any Android ROM as well as other systems like Ubuntu Touch, Plasma Active, Bohdi Linux or WebOS port. 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, daily prebuilt image files to install Ubuntu Touch 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
    * Use for example Ubuntu Touch or Desktop alongside with Android, without the need of device formatting
    * Boot from USB drive attached via OTG cable




    Warning!

    It _is_ dangerous. This whole thing is basically one giant hack - none of these systems are made with multibooting in mind. It is messing with boot sector and data partition. 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
    1. Via MultiROM Manager app
    This is the easiest way to install everything MultiROM needs. Install the app and select MultiROM and recovery on the Install/Update card. If the Status card says Kernel: doesn't have kexec-hardboot patch! in red letters, you have to install also patched kernel - either select one on the Install/Update card or get some 3rd-party kernel here on XDA. You are chosing kernel for your primary ROM, not any of your (future) secondary ROMs, so select the version accordingly.
    Press "Install" on the Install/Update card to start the installation.

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

    MultiROM has 3 parts you need to install:

    • MultiROM (multirom-YYYYMMDD-vXX-UNOFFICIAL-m7.zip) - download the ZIP file from second post and flash it in recovery.
    • Modified recovery (TWRP_multirom_m7_YYYYMMDD.img) - download the IMG file from second post and use
      "fastboot flash recovery TWRP-multirom-20150619-v32e-UNOFFICIAL-m7univ.img"
    • Patched kernel - You can use either one of the stock ones in second post or third-party kernels which include the patch, you can see list in the second post. Download the ZIP file and flash it in recovery.
    You current rom will not be erased by the installation.
    Download links are in the second post.



    Adding ROMs

    1. Android
    Go to recovery, select Advanced -> MultiROM -> Add ROM. Select the ROM's zip file and confirm. As for the space, clean installation of stock 4.2 after first boot (with dalvik cache generated and connected to google account) takes 676mb of space.​

    2. Ubuntu Touch this is NOT SUPPORTED AS MOST OTHER PORTS, IF YOU CARE TO ADD SUPPORT, PLEASE DO SO. THANK YOU
    Use the MultiROM Manager app to install Ubuntu Touch.

    Ubuntu Touch is in development - MultiROM will have to be updated to keep up with future changes in Ubuntu, so there's a good chance this method stops working after a while and I'll have to fix it.


    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 Advanced -> 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 Advanced -> MultiROM -> List ROMs and select the ROM you want to update.
    • Select "Flash ZIP" and flash ROM's ZIP file.
    • In some cases, you might need to flash patched kernel - get coresponding patched kernel version from second post and flash it to the secondary ROM sama way you flashed ROM's ZIP file.



    Explanation of recovery menus

    Main menu
    - Add ROM - add ROM to boot
    - List ROMs - list installed ROMs and manage them
    - Inject boot.img file - When you download for example kernel, which is distrubuted as whole boot.img (eg. franco kernel), you have to use this option on it, otherwise you would lose MultiROM.
    - Inject curr. boot sector - Use this option if MultiROM does not show up on boot, for example after kernel installation.
    - Settings - well, settings.

    Manage ROM
    - Rename, delete - I believe these are obvious
    - Flash ZIP (only Android ROMs) - flash ZIP to the ROM, for example gapps
    - Add/replace boot.img - replaces boot.img used by this ROM, this is more like developer option.
    - Re-patch init - this is available only for ubuntu. Use it when ubuntu cannot find root partition, ie. after apt-get upgrade which changed the init script.​

    Current Test Builds

    All Current Test Builds can be found on androidfilehost under MultiROM TEST BUILDS

    You should be using these, not the ones mentioned below!

    Definition of Test Builds: These are stable builds which I have and am using (and testing). They contain the most up to date fixes as mentioned in the changelog under <tba>.
    • The main reason I'm calling them "Test Builds", is because they have not gone through extensive testing as what I would usually do for a "release version". I think most people would call them release versions, but I tend to be more conservative.
      .
    • The second reason, they get uploaded to AFH instead of directly here, is two fold:
      1. I'm maintaining the M7, M8, M9 and HTC 10 MultiROM versions, and uploading to AFH is easier and faster for me.
      2. Updating the actual threads and posts, is too time consuming every time I want to push an update.

    Changelog and NO_KEXEC 4.1 Information can be found in the HTC 10 MultiROM thread.

    MD5: 2ba0c67c2ec1522b278a3996b5b4e814


    MultiROM Manager Android app: Google Play or link to APK


    You need to have kernel with kexec-hardboot patch only in your primary ROM!
    Or you can use the no-kexec workaround v2


    AndroidFileHost (mirror & old versions): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=33970

    2. third-party kernels with kexec-hardboot patch

    You need a kernel that supports kexec-hardboot in the primary ROM.
    Note that although MultiROM, it's recovery, and app are HTC One M7 universal build - they support M7_U/UL (GSM), M7_WLS (Sprint) and M7_WLV) - you need to make sure the kernel you choose/select is for your particular device!!

    Some examples for M7_U/UL kernels:
    ElementalX - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2249774
    teaMSeven - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2307371
    Make sure to flash the proper version for your Android and HTC Sense or GPE version.

    More kernels here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-one/#kernels
    Make sure the the features of your kernel include "kexec-hardboot (for multirom support)"

    3. Uninstaller

    MultiROM uninstaller: multirom_uninstaller-20160409-v33b-UNOFFICIAL-m7univ.zip
    Flash this ZIP file to remove MultiROM from your device. It will erase all secondary ROMs. If you don't want MultiROM menus in recovery, re-flash clean TWRP, but it is not needed - those menus don't do anything if MultiROM is not installed.

      [url]http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=37389003&postcount=1031[/url]
    * Remove specific support for Ubuntu - it is now handled as "generic linux"

    MultiROM v5
    =====================
    * Support for ROMs with configuration file. This makes porting
      Ubuntu/plasma/webos/anything much more easier. See the third post.
    * MultiROM will no longer let you boot Ubuntu ROM if it's name contains
      spaces, because the boot would fail.
    
    MultiROM v4

    Short question are you planning to update multirom for m7 with the nearly published twrp 3.0.0? Not asking for an ETA, only want to know whether there is a possibility for an update someday. Still using multirom and its working like a charm :eek:

    Yes it will be updated for the M7, M8 and M9

    I didnt go through thousands of lines of code and all of this
    to just abandon the project ;)

    And yeah, I've had that code for some time now, but I have a few changes still left to do; some people were just more in a hurry to release
    12
    Still good work m7 needs to be kept alive

    First off, please don't patronize me!


    Second, let me make this PERFECTLY clear:

    1- if you like it, enjoy it... I can see how much appreciation I'm getting, meh,
    but I do this mostly for myself anyway, so: #

    2- if you have something to report, then do it properly (exact error, log, etc. ... you have been going on for days on end without any plausible explanation, other than "it didn't work")

    3- if you don't know how to the above two, then don't use it.... it's a huge hack to begin with (and getting bigger), so if you don't / are not interested then do NOT USE IT.

    case closed.

    New MultiROM v33b and MultiROM TWRP Recovery 3.0.2-0_2016-04-09 are up

    Finally decided to release it, has been tested extensively enough, imho, thanks to @ljjehl
    but as always, make backups

    Enjoy :D


    More information about no-kexec-workaround will follow later, though this option is not needed on the M7, as there are plenty of kexec-hardboot enabled kernels around.

    Just in case: to access the MultiROM specific pages in recovery, you have to click the icon in the top right corner.



    Changelog
    Code:
    MultiROM v33b
    =====================
    * Updates for Android 6.0 compatibility
    * New kernel logging + history (needs to be enabled in TWRP)
