I was looking for a multirom version for the Moto G4 2016 Athene xt1622.

Seems like Unofficial multirom zip version and recovery
images exist out there but no instructions to go with it.
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=103401
I had TWRP(athene) unlocked bootloader and rooted.
Then using flashify app I installed both the recovery image and multirom Unofficial downloaded above.
TWRP recovery then boots with as the Multirom version with the Added multirom menu etc.
As far as I know to make Multirom work automatically on power up
it needs a patched kernel with kexec-hardboot.
None of the kernels on XDA for xt16xx are kexec-hardboot...

Stuck..
Can anyone figure it out?

Edit: seems like original files are now access restricted(possibly due to this post).

You're posting in the wrong section.

Unless you maintain a ROM, please dont post anything under the dev section.

If you have a question or are stuck, head over to the Q & A section.

Is a build mine, and I confirm that it does not work!

I see you have restricted access to the files and folders now.
I tried your recovery and multirom which boots OK under multirom version of TWRP.

flar2 develops Elemental X kernel and will have a look regarding adding the kexec-hardboot.

Would that make any difference??

If someone wants to try before me.

Clone this repository and then add the code below to /data/devices/motorola.yml file.

    - xt1621
    - xt1622
    - xt1625
    - xt1626
    - xt1640
    - xt1641
    - xt1642
    - xt1643
    - xt1644

  architecture: armeabi-v7a

  block_devs:
    base_dirs:
      - /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name
      - /dev/block/platform/soc.0/7824900.sdhci/by-name
    system:
      - /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/system
      - /dev/block/platform/soc.0/7824900.sdhci/by-name/system

      - /dev/block/platform/soc.0/7824900.sdhci/by-name/boot
      - /dev/block/mmcblk0p28
    recovery:
      - /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/recovery
      - /dev/block/platform/soc.0/7824900.sdhci/by-name/recovery

Can you share images from your builds here(or link to a thread if you open a new one).

I wouldn't be able to do the builds atm. No PC/Mac atm.
Happy to flash and test your Dual Boot Patcher build as described above.
