nice thanks :good: does he have a kernel for us :D


I was/am hoping for @flar2 ... as far as I am concerned, he is the leading authority on kernels, imho.

He's pretty much one of the original android pioneers, and an all around nice chap.. Not sure if he has a kernel but he was working on a dual boot for the m7 I believe, and that was functional.

Not sure how you'd even contact him, Paul O'Brien I think his full name is. Has a website called Modaco. He may be able to help with some things.

Many thanks again, but I'm actually working off a port from @Tasssadar
I have been able to get [modified] TWRP recovery to work, as well as get to the multirom (both by tassader) boot menu

"we" still have to implement a kernel with kexec-hardboot, I will be looking into it, but as mentioned before the most qualified person is still @flar2

I can't wait for this! It's one of my most-missed features from my old m7. Since we've got a SD card slot, storage shouldn't be an issue!

Fair enough, all in saying is, this guy has already done it before

I asked @flar2 if he could add kexec to elemental. Hopefully he can find time to do it, fingers crossed!

it does look like a LOT of work... i'm by far the most idiotic person (including kernel development) but if the source isnt already in place, then YES, it will be a handful

then again, i'm no kernel dev, nor would i even know where to find all those "missing" files :eek:
"perhaps" someone will :fingers-crossed:

Hi there
What s the status of this project ? is the code available anywhere on github?

Cheers
Unfortunately, had more than enough setbacks :(
Laptop died
Repo(s) gone along with it
Etc.

Actually tried rebuilding yesterday, but now I have bunch of errors
Can't even compile properly

I had it working, difficulty, but working for a while.
Until I can figure out what's wrong (since the help, or lack thereof is abundant.. To say the least) it's on hold

I never pushed my changes, since they are way too early

But if you want my patch sets, you can pm me

I follow Multirom project since it started for nexus 7 2012, and tried it for several different phones and tablet....
even if I think that is amazing, and many devs said what I say is no sense, I think that it screws something up. I feel secondary roms and also primary slower or laggier, maybe is a placebo but I never changed my idea about that. though I would use this ;)
keep up! let's bring to this section something nice

As an ex active theme maker, you'd probably make me start making some once again if you could figure this out. I really like Sense, but I need fast transitions to CM - so backups we not an option.

I may take you up on that quite soon :D
or even sooner,

can confirm the following (a couple of hours or so ago)

Current ROM: ViperOneM9 3.5.0

flashed, modified TWRP (TWRP-multirom-20151207-v32-01-UNOFFICIAL-hima.img)
installed new MultiROM zip (multirom-20151207-v32-01-UNOFFICIAL-hima.zip)
Code:
07/12/2015  16:46         4,381,644 multirom-20151207-v32-01-UNOFFICIAL-hima.zip
07/12/2015  16:43        40,296,448 recovery-multirom-20151207-v32-01-UNOFFICIAL-hima.img

for testing, flashed straight into secondary: "Slim-himaul-5.1.1.beta.0.8-DM-DEV-20151002-1240.zip"

and yep, MultiROM boot menu popped up properly, selected Slim, booted fine.... okay didnt test it too much, then selected reboot, and chose internal again
.... and it's working, no damage, as far as i can tell :cool:

but I do have waaaaay too much [added] debug code in there, so that needs to be cleaned up, before a new development thread can [finally] be opened.

(didnt have to do any of the manual stuff I had to before, everything worked as expected; obviously this is a huge workaround, and yes, there are circumstances that can get you into "a bit" of trouble, for the time being, let's call it a "lingering" primary_boot.img.... you'll hear that term again)
soon I hope :D
.

PS: I'm not a video kinda person, though it would be a nice proof that it works,
but, I don't like videos, I just tease :D

and it will be released as a "beta" even if functioning properly / as expected

    This thread is no longer needed :D
    so I'm closing it

    You might want to speak with Paul from Modaco about this. He's done this before.
