how you get it to work?

Install multirom manager v1.180 or later initially it will show product not supported.
then go to settings and click on the version number 5 times to enable developer options.
set override manifest URL to - http://tasemnice.eu/multirom-test/manifest.json
go back to the main page now it will refresh and you can install Multirom.

download all the rom files you need, Boot to TWRP --> Advanced --> Multirom --> add rom --> SELECT ANDROID ZIP --> select the zip files and flash.
Reboot and now you should see a boot-menu with all your roms. :victory: Enjoy the beauty of android in all shapes and sizes :)

I'm sorry but I think you misunderstood me, I mean how did you get it to work with no custom kernels with kexec support now.

Unless Franco have got a secret version which support multi rom

Franco kernel does not work with multirom on my nexus because it doesn't have the kexec-hardboot patch. Is there a way around that to still be able to use Franco? Or should I just flash the CM kernel?

Only thing I found, when booting using after setting up the app 'LiveBoot' (it shows the debug messages while booting) the display will freeze on the last wall of text when boot finishes. Still can interact with the screen, just have a wall of text between you and what android is trying to display if that makes sense. I just turned it off and all works good now.

Hi. I tried following your instructions. But no where in the Developer Options can I see an option to override Manifest URL. My current ROM is Blisspop 10/3. Could you please help me around ?

So I have installed Multi ROM now. However I would prefer to change my primary ROM.
So what are the steps to do the same ?
Also do I need to flash a kernel which has kexec.c hardboot patch, everytime I would prefer to change my Primary ROM ?. And what about Inject Curr.Boot sector?

From the looks of it you just go to "Swap ROM", I tried it last night and it doesn't seem like you can place one of your secondary ROMs as your primary ROM, but you can make your primary ROM one of your secondary ROMs and install a new one, which will need to have the kexec patch.

    This is just a testing version - use the stock and CM kernels I built for now. However, if nobody encounters any more problems with MultiROM v31x and recovery 2015-03-09 p1, I will release the stable version soon, and with it, the kexec-hardboot patch for kernel devs to merge.

    Check the multi-ROM maintainers G plus page, it works like a charm.

    Do the kernels force encryption?

    My kernels are just kernels, and not whole boot images - the change that does what you call "force encryption" is inside the init ramdisk, a part of boot image that does not get overwritten by my kernels. That means you keep whatever you had before you flashed my kernels - if it didn't force encryption before flashing, then it won't do it after you flash it either.
