I need to know how to install zips from different locations..
Bootmanager lite(Play store)

The app requires you to boot from a different folder i.e; the bootmanager folder..
And i found that fufu's minimod 0.22's apply zip from custom path did not work..
Anyone know a recovery with this option working?

Do you have a Milestone or a Droid?

In case of Milestone it is 110% impossible because of its locked bootloader. (The fact that we can use custom roms and now custom kernel is a miracle).

I read the description of the app you linked and look what I've found:

Motorola phone's with a locked bootloader will also not currently work.

But if you check their site.. phones with 2ndInit are supported..
They just need to apply the zip from the folder..
eg: Droid 2

I still doubt it will work on the Stone.

Idk for sure, maybe I give it a try.

Update: I've tried it. After installing it my phone freezes everytime. So it is not really working on our phone.

Thats odd..
It works fine for me!
I even setup the phone rom and the second rom(CM10)
I use cm7 btw..

*Unrelated*
How do you bear with cm10?
It takes 2-4 sec to open the lock screen as well!
I just cant stand that kind of sluggishness in everyday utilities!
Even the dialer takes a minimum of 5-10 sec to open up!
Thats too much time to wait to make an urgent phone call
Plus the choppiness of the camera..
How do you put up with it?

Interesting, maybe I try it again someday.
Good to know it works.

I'm doing fine with CM10. I think it's just a matter of trying settings out and learning from the experience.
For me, swap with low swappines value gives pretty decent overall performance. The other thing is a lot of people install a huge amount of software on their phone, a lot them they doesn't even use, and every one of they slowly kills the performance by taking ram, cpu power, etc.
